Intel Compute Element for NUCs
Dec 19, 2019
If you’re looking to enhance your business processes, one of the smartest moves you can make is to implement the right technological solutions. The Intel Compute Element for the Next Unit of Computing (NUC) is something to keep an eye on, so you can see what develops.
Intel already experienced great success with the NUC platform. The Compute Element takes things a step further by refining the NUC concept. Let’s take a look at why the NUC has found such success with businesses and why the Intel Compute Element will change up the NUC game.
The NUC Difference
The Intel NUC is essentially a mini personal computer. It offers a wide range of benefits over your traditional laptop or personal computer. For one, it uses little energy due to its size. Also, it offers stellar performance and security.
Additionally, the NUC offers easy connections thanks to its multiple peripheral ports. On top of this, it is versatile and configurable, and you can easily combine it with existing or new peripherals. To top this all off, this device is highly energy-efficient, as its wattage is lower than that of tower personal computers.
This mini personal computer is especially helpful for enterprises. For example, its multiple applications include interactive displays, vending machines, surveillance, automated teller machines, point of sales locales, kiosks, and digital signage.
Now let’s take a peek at how the Intel Compute Element for NUCs works.
The Compute Element for NUCs
A little device, dubbed The Intel Compute Element, will allow users to have CPU, DRAM, and storage all on a dual-slot PCIe card. Better yet, it also contains Thunderbolt, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and USB ports, and is designed to pair with GPUs and other accelerators.
It was first designed to decrease the workload of the specific motherboard to which it is connected. However, it also makes packages upgradeable, something that is hard to accomplish otherwise. A miniature NUC may benefit most from this technology, although the Element can be used with any NUC.
The Compute Element basically houses a processor along with networking and connectivity options inside slim hardware. There’s also a connector on the outside that makes it easy for you to remove it from any device for repair or replacement purposes.
The benefit of the Compute Element is it enables you to have a beefier central processing unit. As a result, you can use it for even the most demanding enterprise application—for example, with a server or corporate workstation. This new product is expected to go to computer manufacturers at the beginning of 2020.
