Intel NUC 6th Generation Next Unit of Computing kits

- Replaces the Intel NUC 5th Generation Next Unit of Computing kits- Replaced by the Intel NUC 7th Generation Next Unit of Computing kits

Intel's NUC kits are a revolution in PC design and the new 6th Generation continue that trend. They feature USB 3.0, WiFi and Bluetooth and improved graphics processor for a full-blown PC housed in the smallest sized PC you've ever seen.

A revolution in ultra-compact device design, the Intel NUC packs more features into 4 inches square. They are equipped with the 6th generation Intel Core processor to maximise performance on processor-intensive tasks like media editing. A replaceable lid gives you plenty of options to create the NUC you want — with amazing style and features. It also features Intel HD Graphics with 4K display capabilities to provide visually stunning graphics. A high-speed USB 3.0 charging port lets you easily charge your tablet or smartphone quickly. Complete with WiFi 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth and 7.1 surround sound, the Intel NUCs are ideal for home theatre PCs, media server PCs and home hubs. For peace of mind, you’ll get embedded security that helps keep out threats and keep user identities and credentials safe. With this kind of power, size, and versatility, you’ll rethink what's possible.

This new generation Intel NUC packs more features into an even slimmer form factor. What’s more, the sleek, small Intel NUC has a stereo/microphone jack and USB 3.0 for easy home theatre connections and gaming requirements. Or you can use it as a home office PC. The Intel NUC is small enough to de-clutter your office, yet powerful enough to run the most demanding applications. The Intel NUC: as small as a desktop speaker, as powerful as a sonic boom. Sleek, shiny, and with a smaller footprint than a wireless modem, the Intel® NUC with the 6th generation Intel Core processors is at home in your living room, your office, or your media centre.

Core i5 Model

The i5 versions are equipped with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, automatically allowing processor cores to safely run faster than the base operating frequency. It also includes Intel Rapid Start Technology, ensuring you are quickly up and running, and Intel Smart Connect Technology to keep you up to date at all times.

The Intel NUC comes complete with Intel HD Graphics 540 to ensure a brilliant HD experience, Quick Sync Video for fast video encoding, and DisplayPort 1.2 for driving 4K displays. Couple this with a stereo/mic jack along with four USB 3.0 ports and an infra-red sensor for your remote control, and you can create a home entertainment system, a gaming machine, a digital jukebox, or all of the above. You can immerse yourself in movies, TV, or games in 4 inches square without the need for extra discrete hardware. The Intel NUC: as small as a game controller, as powerful as a jackhammer!

Core i3 Model

Built with a 6th generation Intel Core i3 processor, integrated Intel HD Graphics 520, and 7.1-channel audio, the Intel NUC gives you the power to create a media centre PC that lets you fully experience iTunes, Netflix and other online entertainment content — and enjoy it all in crisp HD. The i3 NUCs are equipped with Intel Rapid Start Technology, ensuring you are quickly up and running, and Intel Smart Connect Technology to keep you up to date at all times.

Product Differences

Apart from the differences between the i3 and i5 models mentioned above there is also one other major difference. Two of the available NUCs have an "H" at the end of their model number. This means that they are able to accommodate a single 2.5" hard drive or SSD as well as a M.2 SSD. The benefits of this is being able to have an M.2 SSD as the boot drive and a 2.5" drive for storage. This increases the height to 48mm compared to the NUC that only supports M.2 SSDs which are 32mm tall.
