Intel NUC5i5RYK Broadwell-U Mini-PC Hands-On Video With Benchmarks

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.

Intel NUC with 5th Generation Broadwell-U Core Processor

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 of what the system can do. As you’ll see, not only is the machine nice and small, but it packs some punch as well.

When fleshed out with 8GB of RAM and fast M.2 SSD, the Intel NUC5i5RYK puts up some decent benchmark scores, while sipping power from the electrical outlet.

The primary advantages of Intel’s 5th Generation Core Series Broadwell-U-based processors are better performance-per-watt, stronger graphics, and a smaller footprint, all things that are perfectly suited to the NUC (Next Unit of Computing) products.

Our full review will be available in just a few days but we hope our little video tease will hold you over until then. Stay tuned.
