    On the other hand this NUC have a PCIe slot... 3rd part offer chasis with the complete and real slot mod for AMD or NVidia dGPU.
    Intel just follow them. (but we can't buy only the motherboard like any previous gen :( )

    *edit* yes, now you can buy only the motherboard to make your own NUC :)

    Xe team will be able to power a NUC, but by the looks of it Xe-HP (which will power the discrete cards) isn't ready in time for this NUC (it needs to be ready ages before, not just in time for launch) and Xe-LP only goes up to 96 EUs which is what the iGPUs have (mobile anyway, desktop has cut down IIRC). The GPU in DG-1 is Xe-LP and equipped with same 96 EUs and it will only be used next to the iGPU in mobile form factors, Intel separately confirmed it won't be released as discrete product.

    Also, you forgot Intel shipping short-lived and rare(?) Cannonlake NUCs, which had discrete Radeon 540. I think there has been some other NUCs with discrete low-end Radeons, too.
