Intel introduces a new range of mini PC products called NUC (Next Unit of Computing).

 

Next Unit of Computing (NUC) is a small-form-factor personal computer designed by Intel. Its motherboard measures 4 ◊ 4 inches (10.16 ◊ 10.16 cm). Currently itís available with 5th, 6th & 7th Generation based processor.

 

The barebone kits consist of the board, in a plastic case with a fan, an external power supply and VESA mounting plate. Intel does offer for sale just the NUC motherboards, which have a built-in CPU, although (as of 2013[update]) the price of a NUC motherboard is very close to the corresponding cased kit; third-party cases for the NUC boards are also available.

  • RAM: DDR3L-1600/1866 1.35V SO-DIMM

Seventh Generation
Kaby Lake-U
Intel seventh generation NUC models, codenamed Baby Canyon, are based on their Kaby Lake-U processors with a TDP from 15 W to 28 W. The most notable additions are HDMI 2.0 and USB 3.1 Type-C ports (with Thunderbolt 3 on i5 and i7 models).


Operating system support
NUCs support UEFI compatible operating systems, such as Windows, as well as most distributions of Linux. Additionally, they can be used for virtualization with VMware vSphere; multiple NUCs can be used together to create a home lab for learning purposes.

NUCs have also become very popular in the Hackintosh scene. The pre-Haswell Core i3 and Core i5 NUCs will run OS X 10.9 Mavericks well. However, certain features, notably audio, are not supported by any available drivers on current models.
