Very sad, i found the following spec page Intel® NUC Kit NUC6i7KYK Specifications
The page clearly states no TPM.
A mobile device with no TPM is not a good choice today, secure boot is a must have for me.
It is nice if it is true.
The problem, where can I found a official statement from Intel?
It goes a little bit deeper, somehow the TPM Chip needs to be supported in the UEFI BIOS, or I am wrong? So I really need Intel to be in and not having a statement in an official support document which indicates no TPM.
I really considering buying this NUC, but it really needs to have TPM

To clarify the confusion:
- Does NUC6i7KYK have a TPM chip? No, they don’t have it.
Also here is the Technical Product Specifications in case you want to corroborate it.
Here are some NUC’s suggestions with TPM
Hope this helps, If there is anything else you need, please let me know.
yes it helped, but wasn't the result what I wished.
I was hoping that I can use this powerful NUC Intel® NUC Kit NUC6i7KYK as easy transportable and powerful testing and demonstration device. Yes it is not the purpose for what it is designed, but it easily can hold a server and some VM.
Yes you can use powerful notebooks such as a Dell Precision instead, but this device is smaller and does not include all the other notebook related stuff (Screen, accu, keyboard etc.
During a short Twitter chat i found that many more found this a compelling solution. I also heard complains that Intel is not really supporting sever OS (Windows Server) on this device type.
It would be wonderful if Intel can create a NUC in the future that really use the full potential of the platform.
i7 or Xeon E3-15xxM, 4 DDR4 Memory Chanel for 64 GB Ram, 2x M.2/M-Key (PCIe 3.0 x4 + SATA, 2280/2260/2242), Thunderbolt 3 and of course TPM 2.0
It would be a dream if Intel would make such a product
Please be advised: the answer above by intel_corp is technically correct, but actually the wrong answer for most users most of the time.
While it's true that the NUC6i7KYK doesn't support TPM 2.0, it does support Intel TPP, and this means it supports secure boot and full-drive encryption (among other services). You can see this clearly on this page.
In order to take advantage of Intel TPP you'll want to do the following:
- Make sure you have TPP enabled in your system's BIOS. it's under the security tab, and is off by default.
- If you're going to use SecureBoot, enable that in the BIOS as well, and make sure you do this BEFORE installing the OS.
- Install the Intel Management Engine component; this is available through the device's drivers and downloads page.
Source: I own a NUC6i7KYK and have done these things to enable BitLocker full drive encryption. It works fine.
