Intel exiting the PC business as it stops investment in the Intel NUC

Intel has made the surprising announcement that it will no longer be investing in its Next Unit of Compute (NUC) business. This decision comes after Intel’s previous exit from the server business. Intel NUCs have become popular due to their small size and Intel’s support. However, there has been a gap in support compared to other mini PC vendors. Intel’s decision raises the question of whether the company adds more value through motherboard and chassis design rather than chip design. Intel will now rely on industry partners to continue innovating in the NUC ecosystem. The Intel NUC line has expanded to include larger form factors and even Intel Xeon CPUs. Despite the popularity of NUCs, this move by Intel makes sense in the context of the company’s focus on streamlining its business. This decision will not affect Intel’s other business groups.
