Intel releases the Compute Stick gadget

The US company Intel has made headlines once again but this time you won’t see CPUs mentioned in the articles. Instead the US chip maker has released the Compute Stick mini-computer, which was unveiled a while ago.

The new gadget measures 103 x 37 x 12 mm (4.06 x 1.46 x 0.47 inches) and is capable of running Windows 8.1 32-bit with Bing or Ubuntu Linux 14.04 LTS. The Windows version offers a 1.33 GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3735F processor (1.83 GHz Turbo), 2 GB of DDR3-1333 memory (non-upgradeable), integrated Intel HD graphics, 32 GB of internal eMMC memory, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a lock slot, one USB 2.0 port and microSD and micro USB ports and a 1-year warranty for USD 150. The Linux version has largely the same hardware but comes with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage for USD 110.

The Intel Compute Stick can be used with various monitors and TV sets that have a HDMI port to give them computing capabilities. The Windows version is available now, while the Linux model will come out sometime in June of this year.
