Intel’s NUC (next unit of computing) ultra-compact desktop has been becoming increasingly popular, giving users the same performance of desktops that are ten times its size. Intel NUC units have been limited to Core i5 processors, but it looks like Intel will be changing that. Intel is working on a new unit that will feature a Core i7 processor based on Intel’s 5th generation “Broadwell” technology.
In Intel’s latest Q4 earnings report they have confirmed that Skylake will land in the second half of 2015, but 10 nm is still a far ways off. Intel’s CEO Brian Krzanich has confirmed that the Broadwell delay has not affected the Skylake launch schedule. Intel still plans to release Skylake in the second half of this year around back to school time.

Valve has been making progress with Steam OS and In-Home Streaming, and hardware vendors have been trying to find a balance of performance and value. Sporting a small lightweight form factor, quad-core processor, and an SSD, Syber Vapor STREAM has found that balance of performance and value.

Intel has started to talk about the first details of their next-generation high-end desktop (HEDT) processors codenamed “Braodwell-E”. These Core i7 HEDT processors will be built in the existing LGA2011-3 package and will be compatible with current X99 motherboards (likely with a BIOS update).
We have been hearing rumors about Intel’s Skylake for a while now, but we now have something better than the rumors, an actual photograph of the chip. The below photograph is of a sample that has been sent out to motherboard manufacturers for testing.
