Intel NUC gets Braswell overhaul

by on26 May 2015

6-watt Celerons and Pentiums

Intel has refreshed its NUC line with a few new models, based on 14nm silicon. 

Yesterday, Fanless Tech stumbled upon a PDF outlining the update, which has gone all but official in the meantime.

The new Intel NUC5CPYH is based on a 1.6 GHz Intel Celeron N3050 dual-core chip, and the NUC5PPYH sports a 1.6 GHz Intel Pentium N3700 quad-core. Both processors are 6-watt 14nm Braswell parts.

Apart from the new silicon, Intel didn’t do much to change the NUC – it still features the same design and won’t win any beauty contests. The new NUCs are actively cooled.

The first e-tail listings have appeared as well, putting the Celeron-based version at $140, while the Pentium model is supposed to sell for about $180.
