Overall, these early performance figures for the Intel Bay Trail NUC (DN2820FYK) with Celeron N2820 are very compelling on the CPU side with the SoC just having a 7.5 Watt TDP or 4.5 Watt power consumption under normal load. I also continue to enjoy the NUC Kit itself for a barebone system just costing $130 USD! Be sure to read my earlier Intel Bay Trail NUC Kit Linux article for more details on Linux compatibility and other important information. Stay tuned for more results to come in the days ahead.
