Intel’s NUC – the smallest ever x86 form factor details are winding up slowly. NUC or the Next Unit of Computing, measure up at a diminutive 4 inches on each side and supports Core i3 and i5 processors which is used in laptops. The unit has two slots for RAM, two mini PCIe slots for expansion, as well as Thunderbolt, HDMI, and USB 3.0 ports. Intel senior product marketing engineer Fred Birang while talking to Just Press Start said: NUC form factor is primarily targeted at digital signage and kiosks, as well as smart TVs, and is expected to have a price “not in the hundreds and thousands [of dollars].” There is no official announcement regarding the shipping but it is expected that Intel will begin shipping in the second half of the year.
