Intel NUC 4-inch Mini PC Costs $400

Intel's Next Unit of Computing (NUC) 4-inch mini-PC concept is taking shape as more of a premium mini-PC, than an affordable mainstream PC. According to sources, the NUC will arrive some time in Q3 2012, priced at US $400. The base system will be powered by a Core i3 dual-core processor paired with HM65 chipset, about 4 GB of dual-channel DDR3 memory, 40 GB mSATA SSD, HDMI, mini-DisplayPort, WiFi, and Bluetooth. The first-generation NUC hence sticks to mature previous-generation components, while 7-series chipset, and 22 nm processors could be part of its specifications a little later. The demo system at Computex was driven by a Core i5 "Ivy Bridge" processor, with a Turbo Boost speed of 2.70 GHz. A cheaper Celeron-powered version of the NUC is also on the cards.

Silicon Power Also Unveils SkyShare Series WiFi Drives

Silicon Power made its entry to wireless storage with its SkyShare series of WiFi drives. These self-powered drives provide media streaming and data sharing for up to 8 simultaneous connections (compare that to 3, of the Kingston WiDrive). The first two members of the SkyShare family are the NAND flash-based SkyShare F10, and HDD-based H10. The flash-based F10 will be available in capacities of 32 GB and 64 GB, with "low power consumption," while the HDD-based H10 will be offered in 500 GB and 1 TB capacities. The H10 supports a "wired mode," in which it can talk to the host while charging itself, over fast USB 3.0 interface. Both the drives will support 802.11 g/n, and standard security features. The F10 and H10 are pictured in that order, below.

GIGABYTE Launches New Ultra Durable 5 Socket LGA2011 Motherboards

GIGABYTE did not leave out the Sandy Bridge-E HEDT platform when designing its new Ultra Durable 5 line of motherboards, the company showed of two new socket LGA2011 parts, the X79S-UP5 WIFI, and the X79-UP4.

The X79-UP4 is designed to be a sub-$300 offering, being a notch above the X79-UD3 (and perhaps even the X79-UD5). It uses a 6+1 phase CPU VRM, which consists of high-current ferrite core chokes, and PowIRstage IR3550 driver-MOSFETs. GIGABYTE added eight DDR3 DIMM slots, four on either side of the socket, supporting up to 64 GB of quad-channel DDR3 memory. Expansion slots include four PCI-Express 3.0 x16 (x16/x8/x16/x8), two PCI-Express 2.0 x1, and one legacy PCI. The X79-UP4 otherwise has a similar connectivity load-out as the X79-UD3.

ASUS Announces the RT-AC66U (802.11ac) Dual-Band Router

The ASUS RT-AC66U router integrates dual-band Gigabit wireless with fifth generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology, also known as 5G WiFi, which enables speeds up to three times faster than existing 802.11n.
