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.
A new version of Intel’s NUC (next unit of computing) was spotted on the company’s website over the weekend. This version of the NUC is believed to be based off the companies Core Broadwell processors.
Intel will soon be rolling out a new NUC form-factor system based on the Atom “Bay Trail” SoC. The product name is the NUC DN2820FYKH and it will run a Celeron N2820 SoC, which is a dual-core 64-bit x86 CPU clocked at 2.4 GHz and a TDP of under 7.5W.
Intel recently launched their Bay Trail platform last week at IDF13. This new 22nm architecture offers many new features. While Bay Trail is mainly focused at the tablet and notebook market it looks like it will be heading to the desktop market in the form of NUC systems.
The new NUC Haswell computer has been spotted and is said to have been made in order to put right all the errors which were present in the previous systems of these NUC computers which are the Next Unit Computers. Measuring merely 4 x 4 x 1.5 inches, these are the mini computers but they are good enough to pass for the normal desktop workstations.
Intel’s next unit of computing (NUC) is actually a tiny computer that highlights Intel’s ability to make small, interesting and useful form factors. It comes in two models; one is specifically catering the business applications while other is inclined towards consumers for general usage purpose. You will be surprised to hear the news which might not have come in anyone’s knowledge but for your information, Intel’s next unit of computing mini PC has a flaw, and the defect is; it does not cool the mPCIe card very well. The problem arises when the system gets too overloaded; the mini PCI express WLAN card can over heat which results in the mal-functioning of the mSATA SSD next to it.
Akasa has revealed a new submissively cooled chassis for Intel’s NUC platform known as the Newton which measures (154mm x 150mm x 47mm) and performs not only as a case but also a fan-less heat-sink for the Intel processor which is linked to the NUC motherboard. In particular, the Akasa Newton is compatible with the Intel D33217GKE or DCP847SKE NUC motherboard, depending on whether you want to have an Intel Core i3-3217-U or a Celeron 847-U respectively.
