Intel NUC 13 Extreme Review – A BIG Upgrade for Intel NUC
Watch Dogs Legion
Watch Dogs Legion is a game that can be very hard on processors, and the game’s built-in benchmark isn’t even as demanding as a lot of in-game sequences. Like in real life, driving around London can be a demanding process, so its easy to see why Intel’s i9-13900K can easily push past or older Ryzen 9 3950X GPU test rig.Â Â
Watch Dogs Legion with DLSS (Balanced Mode)
To make the game even more CPU-limited, we decided to re-run our Watch Dogs tests with DLSS enabled. This highlights even larger performance caps between Intel’s i9-13900K NUC 13 Extreme system and our GPU test rig. That said, the NUC 13’s performance gains at 1080p are tiny, showcasing the limits of Intel’s latest gaming processor.
Conclusion – An Impressive Mini PC
