Slides about Intel’s second-generation NUC (Next Unit of Computing) devices have surfaced at FanlessTech. The slides reveal Intel’s latest roadmap for their NUC platform which show that Broadwell-based NUC devices will arrive in Q1 of 2015 while Braswell based NUC devices will arrive in Q2 of 2015. Of note is the fact Broadwell NUCs will bring M.2 support in addition to HDMI, DisplayPort, LAN, WiFi, and 2.5 inch SATA drives. NFC and Wireless Charging is also said to be present which is important for keeping the device relevant to mobile.
Other interesting developments include the fact mSATA is being ditched in favour of M.2 & 2.5 inch SATA drives but also that Braswell NUCs will support SDXC UHS-I card slots, although we cannot confirm at this stage whether that means the Braswell NUCs can boot from SD cards.
