Based on the Broadwell architecture, the NUC will have USB 3.0, IR sensor, NFC and replaceable lids with wireless charging
The Intel NUC (Next Unit of Computing) has been creating a lot of hype lately. The roadmap for these glorified PCs in extremely small casings has been leaked somehow and it gives an insight into a handful of details. Now we even know that the 5th Generation Broadwell for NUC is coming later this year.
The Intel NUC is fashioned out of the Broadwell architecture and will be tagged as the Rock Canyon/Maple Canyon. Some of its prominent features include the USB 3.0, IR sensor, NFC and replaceable lids with wireless charging. Both the models, Rock and Maple Canyon will provide full support for the Triple Monitor configurations on the iGPU, the details of which are still unknown, and will run on 4k.
The Rock canyon will feature Intel’s core i3/i5 Processor and miniHDMI will power the big screen of the computer. It will have M.2 SSD & 2.5” SSD/HDD drive options and enhanced connectivity options through the built in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth along with the USB 3.0 ports. On the other hand, the Maple canyon will feature the Intel vPro Technology & TPM hardware which will help to promote remote manageability and security. This one will also feature M.2 SSD and 2.5” SSD/HDD drive options and will have a comprehensive I/O with audio.
