Intel recently announced official availability of its Haswell powered D54250WYK NUC kit that was spotted at PAX Prime about 2 weeks ago. The new D54250WYK NUC kit uses a Haswell based processor – the Core i5 4250U which runs at 1.3GHz across two cores and four threads with a 2.6GHz Turbo mode, 3MB of Cache and a 15W TDP. The CPU is soldered directly onto the motherboard, pictured below, with an active cooling solution and enlarged integrated graphics.
The graphics are provided by Intel HD 5000 running at 200MHz base clock up to a maximum frequency of 1GHz depending on the workload type and intensity. The graphics power two display outputs which include DisplayPort 1.2, which is capable of up to 4K, and HDMI 1.4.
The motherboard has two SODIMM slots supporting up to 16GB of DDR3 1600/1333MHz memory. The expansion capabilities internally include a full length mSATA/ mini PCI express slot and a half length mini PCI express slot. There is also a Gigabit Ethernet port, four USB 3.0 ports (2 front 2 back), two USB 2.0 ports (internal header), a SATA port (internal) and a consumer infrared sensor.
The new Haswell D54250WYK NUC will have support for VESA and comes with a 65W power brick. The unit is backed by a three year Intel warranty. Pricing is TBA.
