Intel's new Apollo Lake NUC (NUC6CAYH) will have a 10W Celeron CPU, 2 memory slots, dual integrated mics for voice recognition, a 2.5" SATA drive bay, 4 USB 3.0 Type-A ports, HDMI 2.0, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and an infrared receiver; all in a compact 4" x 4" package.

Intel has released the full specifications for its new Apollo Lake platform NUC kits on its website.  The NUC6CAYH will be the first NUC using the new Apollo Lake chips, in this case, the quad-core Celeron J3455. Intel will sell 2 models: a barebones kit without memory, storage, or OS license, and a basically equip model with 2GB RAM, 32GB eMMC storage, and Windows 10.

The full list of technical specifications can be found here, but standout features include 2 memory slots (enabling dual channel access) supporting up to 8GB DDR3L @ 1866MHz, dual integrated microphones, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, an infrared receiver, HDMI 2.0, VGA, and support for 5.1 and 7.1 channel audio. Intel touts the ability of the Apollo Lake NUC to handle 4k/60fps content.

Pricing and availability have yet to be officially released, but it's likely it will be priced similar to its predecessors at around US$130.
