Intel NUC Kit NUC5i5RYK

Intel NUC Kit NUC5i5RYK. The Intel Next Unit of Computing (NUC) is something we’ve been talking about since the models first came to market in 2012. We loved the design concept that Intel came up with in 2012 and saw that there was a growing market for such a system. Over the past several years we’ve watched the NUC mature into a very robust platform that easily has the power needed to be the desktop replacement for the vast majority of PC users around the world. The latest Intel NUC won’t be replacing high-end gaming or prosumer systems anytime soon, but thanks to the latest Intel 5th Gen Core i3/i5/i7 processors the NUC is packing more horse power than ever.

Like the generations that came before, the third generation of the Intel NUC comes as a barebone kit. This means Intel has done 95% of the work for you to ensure you have a rock solid system and all you have to do is supply the memory, storage drive and all of the software. There are nine Intel NUC models coming to market in the weeks ahead. One of the major changes this time around is that Intel has thankfully ditched the mSASTA storage drive interface and moved over to the much faster PCIe Gen 2.0 x4 interface. This will drive build costs up some, but they still over a number of models that have room for a 2.5-inch SATA III drive for those looking to build on a strict budget. The other major change Intel made with this generation was that they went with a soldered down wireless card. All of the models feature the Intel Wireless-AC 7265 solution, which is a dual-band 2×2 card that has a maximum throughput of 867Mbps along with Bluetooth 4.0 and Intel Wireless Display.
