Intel presents two new nettop computers
The US chip maker Intel has presented two new nettop computers, known as NUC5CPYH and NUC5PPYH. The two computers belong to the company’s NUC (Next Unit of Computing) product line and sport very small-sized chassis.
The two new nettops share a lot of the hardware inside – they both belong to the Intel Braswell platform and feature Intel HD graphics, support for up to 8 GB of DDR3L-1600 memory, support for one 2.5-inch HDD/SSD, a SDXC memory card slot, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, four USB 3.0 ports, a HDMI port and 3.5-mm audio jacks. The only difference is that the NUC5CPYH model comes with a 14 nm dual-core Intel Celeron N3050 processor at 1.6 GHz (up to 2.16 GHz), while the NUC5PPYH is based on a 14 nm quad-core Intel Pentium N3700 processor at 1.6 GHz (up to 2.4 GHz). Both processors emit up to 6W of power, which means that the new NUC models use just very quiet cooling solutions for heat dissipation.
The NUC5CPYH sells for USD 139, while the NUC5PPYH costs USD 179. Bear in mind that these prices do not include a storage device, RAM and any software.
