Simply NUC Announces Ruby Mini and Topaz Mini Powered by AMD

Simply NUC, Inc, a leading mini computer integration company, today is announcing two new Simply NUC branded mini PC product lines which are positioned for business and consumer markets where scalable performance is valued in a small, energy-efficient form factor. Simply NUC is taking orders on the Topaz and Ruby product lines with Topaz expected to ship in January, and Ruby shipping now.

“We have a corporate vision of a mini computer at every endpoint in the world,” said Aaron Rowsell, Simply NUC CEO, “And our Simply NUC-branded Ruby mini and Topaz NUC families finally give our customers and partners the CPU and graphics performance choice they have been requesting for years; both delivered with the exact same I/O configurations, and compatible with the existing NUC expansion lid ecosystem.”

Three new Topaz NUC SKUs are being added to the Simply NUC roadmap with barebone kit pricing starting at $410USD. The Simply NUC i7 Topaz (NUC11i7TZ) is based on the 11th Gen Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor with Intel Xe graphics, and is intended for usage where performance matters the most. And lower, more cost effective, performance options are also supported with 11th Gen Intel Core i5-1135G7 (NUC11i5TZ) and i3-1115G4 (NUC11i3TZ) SKUs. More information on the Topaz family can be found here.

In addition, three new Ruby Mini PC SKUs are being added to Simply NUC’s Consumer/Business roadmap with barebone kit pricing starting at $370 USD. The Simply NUC Ruby R8 (CBM1R8RB) is based on the AMD Ryzen R7-4800U mobile processor with Radeon Vega graphics and is intended for usage with high performance requirements. The Ruby product line is rounded out with more cost-effective options including the Ryzen R5-4500U (CBM1R5RB) and Ryzen R3-4300U (CBM1R3RB). More information on the Ruby family can be found here.

Ruby and Topaz have near identical configuration options, both offering up to six USB ports, up to four 4K video ports, dual Ethernet supporting GbE and 2.5 GbE speeds, and replaceable lids to extend I/O functionality. Both also offer TPM (Trusted Platform Module) for secure communications where encryption is required. These feature-rich minis support a broad variety of usages including office productivity workstation, cloud connectivity, home entertainment, and casual gaming to name a few. As always, Simply NUC will customize your Topaz or Ruby with memory, storage, OS, and accessories; and have it built and shipped within 48 hours.
