We did not test the port, but some of the NUC 8 models state they have alt DP mode for the USB-C data/audio/charge from the port.
Because it has so many ports, we don’t see the need to add a USB-C dongle to gain extra HDMI or USB-A ports.
Note there are Thunberbolt 3 models as well.
GadgetGuy’s take – a NUC for most uses is all you need
Apart from the review units non-expandable 8GB memory (it does have 2GB of dedicated GDDR video ram), it is a NUC format that I am familiar with. The Intel Core 8th generation is not so much faster but uses less energy and creates less heat.
If you want a NUC (and why not) investigate the options. It comes as a half-height (M.2 only) and full-height (M.2 and 2.5-inch HDD/SSD) as well as a gaming format w
As you can get Windows 10 Pro legally online for under $30, 2x8GB SO-DIM for about $120, and a Samsung EVO 970 or WD Black 1-or-2TB for about $300/650 that makes it a very attractive package. If you do not need blazing disk speed there are far lower cost options from Crucial, Seagate and others in M.2 and 2.5-inch PCI NVMe and SATA 600.
BTW you can get the barebones i5 NUC8I5BEH and i7 NUC8i7BEH with 2 x SO DIM slots and Thunderbolt 3 for around $600/$750. Check options here.
And we would be remiss not to let you know that ASUS, Dell, HP and Lenovo all have small format mini-PCs.
So, our rating is not for the review NUC but for the concept.
