Bay Trail coming to Intel NUC

Written by Peter Scott



Celeron N2820 for $129

Intel has made some interesting moves in the NUC space over the past few weeks. Earlier this month it introduced a new NUC chassis which can accommodate both a traditional 2.5-inch drive and an mSATA drive. Two new versions of the tiny barebones were also introduced, based on Core i5-4250U and Core i3-4010U.

Now it has a new version based on a Bay Trail chip, the 2.4GHz Celeron N2820. This is a Bay Trail-M part with two cores (no Hyperthreading of course) and 1MB of L2 cache. The TDP is 7.5W, while the SDP is 4.5W. The price is interesting, too. It should retail for $129 and we already found a few listings in Europe, starting at €116. This makes it the cheapest NUC kit do date. In case you want to Google it, the official designation is Intel NUC Kit DN2820FYK. However, you probably won't find it in stock anywhere. European retailers state they will be ready to ship in early February, roughly two weeks from now.

The spec sheet holds a couple of nice surprises. The DN2820FYK features a 2.5-inch drive bay, but it does not appear to have an mSATA slot. It has one DDR3 SO-DIMM slot, a half size PCIe Mini Card, mini HDMI 1.4a, 802.11b/g/n wireless, infrared headers, two USB 2.0 ports and a USB 3.0 port.

The decision to go for a standard 2.5-inch drive is understandable given the relatively low price. Instead of buying a new mSATA drive, users will be able to reuse an old 2.5-inch hard drive or SSD and thus save a few pennies.

In case you're interested, you can check out a few European listings here.
