Intel has announced new NUC units with 5th generation Intel Core processors and a dizzying array of complex model names.
It comes as no surprise that Intel's NUC lineup hs been upgraded to their newest 5th generation Core architecture, and these new units are powered by Core i3 and i5 Broadwell CPUs. The move to Broadwell will enable these new NUCs to operate with greater efficiency and lower power consumption, an especially vital advantage for systems housed in enclosures as small as 115mm x 111mm x 48.7mm (4.53" x 4.37" x 1.92"). There are a variety of new models to choose from, and Intel is highlighting specific usage examples to aid in the buying decision.
The featured NUC, memorably named NUC5i5RYH, is powered by the Core i5 5250U CPU which offers dual-core, 4-thread performance up to 2.7 GHz and supports 2.5" hard drives. Graphics are handled by the integrated Intel HD 6000 GPU which offers multi-display support via Mini DisplayPort (1.2) and Mini HDMI (1.4a). This model supports up to 16GB dual-channel DDR3L memory via two SoDIMM slots, with connectivity provided by Intel PRO Gigabit Ethernet and Intel Wireless-AC 7265.
Storage options for the NUC5i5RYH include M.2 (x4) and SATA 6.0 Gb/s for a SSD/HDD up to 9.5mm thick.
The NUC5i5RYH is joined by the NUC5i5RYK, NUC5i3RYH, NUC5i3RYK… Actually, just follow the link to see a comparison of the new Broadwell NUCs.
The new Broadwell NUCs will be shipping in February and March, depending on model.

Too bad it doesn’t come in
Too bad it doesn’t come in black like 90% of HT equipment sold in the US and only HDMI 1.4? Seriously!?! If I’m putting in a HTPC I would NEVER consider anything less than HDMI 2.0 for my 4K TV.
The displayport 1.2 has full
The displayport 1.2 has full resolution support, seems they are more marketing it for SOHO / generic office use.
It’s weird they have the resolution on one port and not the other, maybe an update will fix it?
PORTS 4x USB 3.0, 1x mini
PORTS 4x USB 3.0, 1x mini DisplayPort 1.2, 1x mini HDMI 1.4a, headphones (The new specification enables HDMI devices to support extremely high HD resolutions, effectively four times the resolution of a 1080p device. Support for 4K allows the HDMI interface to transmit digital content at the same resolution as the state-of-the-art Digital Cinema systems used in many movie theaters)* Mini DisplayPort 1.2 is capable of 4k resolution as well. I found a site that has a bunch of them listed for a decent price and I bought my MSI from them and it was cool. Just FYI. http://cukusa.com/desktops/desktops-by-brand/intel-desktops.html
