Leaked Image Suggests that Intel's NUC Compute Element is getting a Socketed Upgrade

An alleged image of Intel's planned 12th Generation NUC Compute Element card has leaked onto the web by a Twitter user called @9550pro. This image showcases a Intel Compute Element card that features a socketed processor, which appear to be an Alder Lake LGA1700 CPU. 

The image below suggests that Intel's future NUC Compute Element cards may be upgradable, supporting Intel's 35W and possibly 65W CPU 12th Generation CPU SKUs. These CPUs can then be paired with DDR4 memory and PCIe 4.0 storage devices.

The below configuration could allow Intel's 12th Generation NUC Compute Element cards to support 16-core Alder Lake series processors, allowing them to deliver much more compute performance than their predecessors. Intel's 11th Generation NUC Compute Element cards support up to eight Tiger Lake CPU cores. 

The timing of this leak suggests that Intel may showcase new NUC products at CES 2022, possibly alongside new ARC Alchemist series graphics cards.
