We’re eagerly anticipating the arrival of Intel’s new 6th generation NUC, otherwise known as „Next Unit of Computing”. As one of our best selling products, we were the first company in the world to rack-mount NUC and haven’t looked back, innovating around the platform ever since its launch in 2013.
The new 6th generation NUC, powered by a Skylake-based chipset dubbed “Skull Canyon” and “Swift Canyon”, promises to be the most powerful family of NUC’s yet, with various product iterations up to Core i7. Whilst information is limited at this stage, depending on the model, new features are expected to include:
- 4K display capability, over mini HDMI 1.4a and mini DP 1.2
- Purpose-built for Windows 10
- Superfast 11ac wireless (option)
- 2 SSD for lightning fast data transfer
- Intel’s much acclaimed Iris Pro graphics
The small form factor and powerful capabilities of NUC make it particularly well suited to a host of applications including immersive gaming, content creation, digital signage, point-of-sale and kiosk.
Expected Q1 2016, we hope to get an early look at the new offering soon, enabling us to begin our own innovation process of continuing to rack-mount NUC as a short-depth, 1U product for specialised computing environments like audio-visual and display media.
