Intel NUC5i7RYH Broadwell-U Iris NUC Review


Over the last couple of years, mini-PCs in the ultra-compact form factor (UCFF) have emerged as one of the bright spots in the troubled PC market. Intel's NUC systems are one of the most popular in this category. The lack of graphic prowess in the NUCs...

The Intel NUC5i7RYH provided us with the opportunity to take a look at what a higher TDP CPU and Iris Graphics can bring to the table in the UCFF space. Intel is pitching the Iris NUC as a gaming and content creation solution. Based on our evaluation,...

Intel NUC (early 2015 model) review


Want a computer the size of a Roku that can compete with a $1,000 laptop, and costs half as much? Last year we'd call you crazy, but Intel's NUC makes…

Extremely small ; Core i5 processor offers solid performance ; Miniscule power draw ; Can support 4K at 60Hz

Some assembly required ; Priced near similar notebooks ; Not cut out for games

Our review unit, as mentioned, is currently available for online pre-order at an average price floating around $375. That’s not much, but the NUC does not include the hard drive or RAM. A compatible 128GB drive can be purchased for as little as $70,...

Fantastic Server


30W peak power consumption makes my wallet happy. Probably going to buy another unit.

I bought this as a cheap power efficient server to replace a loud 1U in my closet. I've been running Xenserver on it since day 1 and it's been amazing. Zero performance issues, even running 4 VM's under decent load. Super cool and no noise ; It's...

It uses a mini-hdmi connector and that wasn't mentioned in the newegg spec. Took an additional day to get up and running because I needed to buy an adapter

Too many issues to warrant buying


Its a nice size and is pretty solid

IR does not work, bios access issues, really serious boot issues where it just won't pick up the boot device, strangely dependant on what TV or monitor its plugged into to actually work. Check the forums and you will see many people with these sorts of...

If you don't need a discrete graphics card, this tiny beast is perfect!

Awesome in a Small Package


This works great as a HTPC or a full PC on the road if a laptop or tablet isn't your thing

Amazingly fast boot with the SSD ; Suprisingly powerful for low power i3 ; Graphics are decent to play most games on low/medium ; Small, and easy to move and carry around in storage

None for its size or purpose
