Hey guys, I thought you might find this interesting.
I spent last week at Intel's developer forum in SF, and stumbled across
this handy thing:
It's not too much bigger than a Raspberry Pi (roughly 4x4 inches as opposed
to 3.5x2.2), but the CPU is wildly more powerful, since it'll be a Core i3
ULV. It'll ship in boxes with a board and case, CPU and thermal solution
(heatsink/fan), but little else - it's targeted at resellers, who'll
package it with some RAM, an mSATA SSD, and a mini PCI-e wireless card.
Granted, it'll cost ~$300 with a targeted MSRP of complete systems at
~$400, though Intel did say it'll probably be available for DIYers, too.
That's a lot of power in a tiny box, and the company said that with the
next-gen Haswell cores, they're going to re-engineer the platform to be
fanless and completely solid state. Despite the cost, I suspect there's a
lot one could do with something like this.
