Next year Intel will release two models of microcomputer Compute Stick processor-based Apollo Lake
The actual line of microcomputers the Intel Compute Stick has a population of 11 models built on processors Bay Trail, Cherry Trail and Skylake (Core M). But in the next year, according to a published source road map, we expect the two new models built on the processors Apollo Lake. These devices provide higher performance in comparison with models on processors Bay Trail and Cherry Trail, but it will be cheaper than the flagship version CPU Core M.
Version with preinstalled Windows 10 will be equipped with 2 GB of RAM and a module eMMC capacity of 32 GB. Version without OS get 4 GB of RAM and eMMC module are twice larger.
Both models will have Wi-Fi adapters 802.11 ac and Bluetooth 4.2, USB 3.0 ports and USB 2.0, headphone Jack, HDMI video output.
At the end of April this year, Intel refused to processors for smartphones and, in fact, left behind the trademark Atom: processor family Apollo Lake, which replaced the «nuclear» Bay Trail and Cherry Trail, now referred to as Celeron and Pentium. Thus, in the new Compute Stick will use SoC or Celeron, or Pentium. But exactly what it will be the processors until the matter.
