The Asus ROG NUC carries the torch for Intel’s mini gaming PC dreams, but the cost of entry is still too steep

Asus first revealed the Asus ROG NUC back at CES 2024, and now more information on the pricing and a release date is coming out regarding the small form factor gaming PC, which could easily be one of the best gaming PCs in the market.

Thanks to a pre-order listing at European retailer Proshop, and reported on by PC Gamer, we now know that the mini-gaming PC will run you €2,500, which translates to about $2,700 for the high-end configuration, though it likely won’t cost that much in the US. That version includes an Intel Core Ultra 9 185H CPU and RTX 4070 GPU, as well as 2x16GB of DDR5 memory and 1TB SSD of storage. According to that same listing, it’s set for an April 10, 2024 release.
