Looking for maximum power in Intel's smallest configuration? This device may be the dream come true for you
We really like the NUC (Next Unit of Computing) computers of Intel And their derivatives from other manufacturers, which offer computer hardware Mobile Diverse in dimensions that will easily find their place near and behind any computer screen TV In the bedroom or in the living room.
You can now find base models of these computers with modest and cost-effective dual-core Celeron and Atom processors, as well as much more advanced and powerful Kaby Lake-R processors - but if that's not enough for you, you can now find a model in a similar configuration based on the -Core i9-8950HKCoffee Lake, Which has six physical processing cores with an 45 Watt power envelope and even an open frequency multiplex that provides additional acceleration potential.
The NUC-like computer comes from a relatively unknown Chinese company called EGlobal, combined with a pair of slots DDR4 In a portable SO-DIMM to up to 32GB, an 2 slot for 2280 drives SSD And place an additional 2.5, or mechanical, drive SSD Based on flash chips.
The S200 model includes chip Integrated wireless connectivity with Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11ac, including a small pair of external antennas for transmission and reception, and the range of connections it offers consists of four USB ports 3.0 Type-A, a single USB Type-C port (no support for technology Thunderbolt 3, unfortunately), integrated audio connector, power connector for external power supply, Gigabit Ethernet wired and HDMI ports and Mini-DisplayPort for Video.
The EGlobal S200 computers are available for purchase Through several hardware stores on the AliExpress platform already, With prices starting at just over $ 300 for base versions with a quad-core Core i5-8300H processor with no storage or dynamic memories - when it's unclear whether we'll ever see them in Western online stores such as Amazon or Newegg. Is it possible that Intel is designing its own powerful parallel NUC versions with six-core processors? This may be possible After seeing Hades Canyon With processors Kaby Lake-G, although on the other hand it is not certain that this will happen based on a maximally configured configuration such as that of EGlobal.
Is this computer worth testing for your taste? Let's talk about it in comments.
