Skylake-U CPU and DDR4 memory

While we already had a chance to see some slides suggesting that Intel is preparing Skylake-U based NUCs for the second half of the year, one such Switft Canyon NUC has been spotted at IDF 2015, running Skylake-U CPU and DDR4 memory.

Detailed earlier by a leaked slide from, the first Swift Canyon NUC was spotted running at Kingston's booth at IDF 2015, rocking HyperX DDR4 memory and HyperX Predator SSD. While the system was running without a case, it did reveal some rather impressive details, including mini-DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI outputs, USB 3.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac and Bluetooth card, and M.2 SSD drive support.

Pictured by, it is not clear which Skylake-U CPU was running in this NUC as both the Core i5-6200U and the Core i3-6100U have the same 2.3GHz CPU clock but it was nice to see it running two Kingston HyperX Impact DDR4 SODIMM 8GB memory modules for a total of 16GB of memory clocked at 2133MHz.

Earlier leak suggested that there will be both Core i5 and Core i3 versions, known as the NUC6i5SYK/NUC6i5SYH and the NUC6i3SYK/NUC3i5SYH.

Hopefully, we will soon see those on retail shelves as Skylake-U looks perfect for small form factor Intel NUC system.
