Intel NUC (Next Unit of Computing) Kit D54250WYK

 

Intel's newest NUC (Next Unit of Computing) Kit D54250WYK improves on the original version by offering more connectivity features and the latest processor technology. You'll still have to supply many of your own components though.

Tiny form factor. HDMI and DisplayPort outputs. USB 3.0. Haswell technology

Price does not include storage or RAM. Limited expandability. Sluggish graphics performance

When we reviewed the first iteration of Intel's NUC (Next Unit of Computing) do-it-yourself kit late last year we were impressed with its diminutive size and Core i3 processing power but bemoaned the lack of USB 3.0 technology and the additional costs...

Intel NUC Kit D54250WYK review: This tiny PC punches high above its weight class

 

This miniature computer outperforms machines many times its size, but you should be aware of what's not included before you buy one.

Uniquely diminutive footprint ; Full-size computing power ; Lots of I/O ports ; IR receiver

Bare-bones system: Some components not included ; Limited upgrade potential ; Itty-bitty design carries a price premium

If you're looking for the smallest of teeny-tiny PCs for your home theater or small business, Intel's latest Next Unit of Computing shines. But it remains a niche product with some limitations. Look...

Intel NUC D54250WYK SFF System Review - Haswell Update

 

Just about a year ago Intel released a new product called the Next Unit of Computing, or NUC for short. The idea was to allow Intel's board and design teams to bring the efficient performance of the ultra low voltage processors to a desktop, and...

This time around Intel has updated the 4x4 enclosure a bit and upgrade the hardware from Ivy Bridge to Haswell. That alone should result in a modest increase in CPU performance with quite a bit of increase in the integrated GPU performance courtesy of...

Intel NUC Kit D54250WYK review

 

Tiny, quiet, power-efficient and fairly quick - the best barebones PC we've ever seen

We're impressed with the Intel NUC. It's tiny, silent, uses less than 8W when idle and 24W under load, and makes a great media centre or unobtrusive general-purpose PC. It's not cheap, at over £500 once you've added the necessary bits, but it's a...

Intel NUC D54250WYK mini PC review

 

This latest incarnation of Intel's Next Unit of Computing (NUC) platform, is an evolution of the Ivy Bridge-based PC we reviewed previously. The D55250WYK updates the processor to a fourth-generation "Haswell" model, as well as providing many other...

The D54250WYK is a big improvement over the previous generation. It's much faster and no-longer are you forced to choose between wired Ethernet or wireless connectivity. With four USB 3.0 ports, it has good connectivity for such a small PC. Note that...
