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... 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... 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... 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... 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... 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.

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... Read more...
You have to love the tiny NUC (Next Unit of Computing) from Intel, a diminutive machine that measures just 116.6 x 112.0 x 51.5mm yet offers a surprising amount of computing power. The chipmaker has a new NUC kit available, and for the performance that the DN2820FYKH offers, it starts at just $128. The NUC sports a... Read more...
Want to know what would happen if you took Intel's Next Unit of Computing (NUC) and swapped out the chassis for one with a "Zen design," installed premium SonicMaster speakers into the device, and traded the built-in Wi-Fi card for one that supports 802.11ac? You'd end up with Asus' slim, sleek, and stylish VivoPC... Read more...
Lian-Li has a wide selection of computer chassis available supporting virtually every size of motherboard imaginable, but the company is about to release many more.

Although noting that Intel can’t really comment on its long-term roadmap for processors,... Read more...
The "Intel Next Unit of Computing" (NUC), as it's appropriately called, is an ultra-compact desktop system that's small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, while packing a performance punch that belies its diminutive stature. Power users looking to game on their high-resolution 30-inch monitors need not apply, but there are plenty of markets... Read more...
Let's dispense with an emerging myth right now: The desktop isn't dead. Far from it. Rather, the desktop is evolving, and this is an exciting time to be a technophile. The advancements we've seen in just the past 12 months are nothing short of remarkable. Solid state drives (SSDs) are getting faster and cheaper, finally making for a viable... Read more...
