In addition to ushering in a tidal wave of new notebooks and mobile devices, Intel’s Broadwell microarchitecture has also found its way into a plethora of recently introduced small form factor systems. We have already taken a look at a couple of them, like the excellent Intel NUC NUC5i5RYK and Gigabyte Brix S BXi7H-5500.The low-power characteristics of Broadwell simply make it well suited to the tight spaces and constrained thermal envelopes of small form factor systems. But another side benefit of Broadwell is that it also allows manufacturers to cram higher performing parts into the same (or... Read more...

Intel just wrapped up an event at a location adjacent to the Game Developers Conference where the company talked about its vision for the future of gaming, and how Intel plans to further support the industry. Intel discussed some updates to its 5th Gen Core processor line-up, Intel graphics developments, the Intel Hardware SDK, and its various game developer tools. Some walk-on guest were also brought out to discuss a few new partnership announcements and programs designed to bring more diversity to gaming and the game industry.Pete Baker, Vice President in Intel’s Software and Services Group opened...

As Intel (and other chip makers) have been able to shrink its processors, integrate more features, and reduce power requirements over the years, manufacturers have been able to fit them into smaller and smaller form factors. That means notebooks and tablets have gotten thinner, lighter, faster and more portable over the years, of course, but it also means that desktop systems no longer need to be big boxes crammed with numerous components and cooling hardware. In some ways, Intel’s NUC series of products are the epitome of this dynamic. Intel’s NUC systems are ultra-small form factor systems that... Read more...
Intel is readying its latest generation of NUC small form factor systems, based on the company’s recently-released Broadwell-U processors. We got our hands on a Core i5-powered version dubbed the NUC5i5RYK. To be more specific, this little machine is packing a Core i5-5250U processor with on-die Intel HD 6000 series graphics. The system also sports built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, M.2 SSD support, and a host of other features. We’re still readying our full review, but in the meantime we thought you’d like to take a peek at the diminutive Intel NUC5i5RYK to get a sense... Read more...
When Intel launched its first NUC in early 2013, it wasn't hard to be impressed. Here was a super-small PC platform that managed to pack in some substantial performance for its form-factor. The first release had a modest Celeron under its hood, but fast-forward to today, and we see full-blown Core i3 and i5 chips, with the biggest being the Core i5-4250U, Turbo boostable to 2.6GHz. It seemed like just a matter of time before Intel would pull the curtain off of a big deal: the introduction of a Core i7 NUC. Alright - calling it a "big deal" might be a stretch, as Intel hasn't given it any fanfare.... Read more...
There are lots of SFF PCs floating around these days, but the Zbox Sphere from Zotac is an odd duck among them. Instead of a tall and slim chassis or a tiny square-ish thing like a NUC, this PC is a sphere. (Er, hence the name.) It’s not just a gimmick to hear Zotac tell it, either; in a press release, Zotac actually calls it a “sphere form factor” which would indicate that the company views the Sphere series as a whole new way of making SFF rigs. From a marketing perspective, it’s certainly a wise idea. The sphere shape is distinctive and could help Zotac’s products... Read more...
Although it’s not the first fanless NUC-ish PC to hit the market, the Gigabyte Brix (GB-BXBT-2807) is the first to offer a dual-core Bay Trail chip with no fan. The unit has been out for a couple of weeks, but Fanless Tech has confirmed that this Brix PC will indeed be fanless. That’s a notable feature for a tiny PC that’s designed to integrate into spaces such as your home theater. Even the relatively quiet whir of a SFF PC’s lone fan is enough to drive you a little nuts when watching a film, especially during those intense quiet scenes. The same holds true for other multimedia... Read more...
The SFF gaming PC craze is in full swing, and CyberPowerPC has lent the “Fang” moniker to a pair of the little beasts. The company is rolling out the Fang Mini R9 (which is based on an AMD platform) and the Fang Mini Pro (which is based on Intel), both of which are available today. How small is small? The chassis measures just 4.5 x 4.3 x 2.4 inches (LxWxH). The AMD version sports an AMD A8-5557M quad-core APU with Radeon R9 M275X (2GB) graphics, 8GB of DDR3 RAM (expandable to 16GB), and a 1TB (7200 rpm) HDD for $799. The Pro version rocks a quad-core Intel Core i7-4770R chip with integrated... Read more...
When you hear DE3815TYKHE, you probably aren't familiar with what it represents. But when you hear Intel NUC, things are likely a little clearer. The first NUC powered by an Intel E3815 Atom processor is now available, boasting a tiny, fanless design, on-board eMMC memory and the space savings of a 4”x 4” motherboard. There's also the ability to directly power an LCD monitor with an onboard eDP connector, and perhaps most impressively, retail pricing for the NUC kit starts at $129, while the NUC board alone is just $99. The vertical design should be solid for not taking up a great deal... Read more...
Microsoft has done a good job of embracing the cloud as it pertains to its lucrative consumer products--look no further than Office 365 and the free online Office suite at Office.com as proof--but the Redmond company may be taking things even further by rolling out a cloud-based operating system, too. The information is from Russian leaker WZOR, which noted that rumors that Windows 9 or Windows 8.2 will be free could actually point to a free version that would actually be cloud-based. It’s somewhat difficult to parse the language of WZOR’s post on the matter with a rough Google translation,... Read more...
