Fanless Tech found some slides which shows Intel has some exciting new hardware planned for release over the next couple of years.
The roadmap shows that Intel will make its new Celeron processor available in the fourth quarter of 2016 with its Arches Canyon model. Its 7th-gen Core chip looks like it will be available at the beginning of 2017 within the Baby Canyon i7 model. Intel will continue to offer the recently launched Skull Canyon through 2017.
Based on the leaked information, Intel has plans to continue its NUC line at least through 2018, offering progressively faster hardware with more options to meet custom applications of the device.
Intel’s NUCs are doing rather well and have been getting good reviews. They are getting increasingly tied to Chipzilla’s chip upgrades so they are remaining fairly cutting edge.
