If you have been interested in an Intel NUC as a 4-inch, low-power computer, the Braswell-based NUC5CPYH is finally in-stock and shipping at major Internet retailers.

The public has known about the NUC5CPYH for a while and it was supposed to be shipping back in June, but it seems this week that milestone finally happened. On 4 June is when I pre-ordered it from Amazon while this morning when waking up I was surprised to see it was finally in-stock, shipped out, and my unit will be arriving tomorrow (Monday).

The Intel NUC NUC5CPYH is the same size as other NUCs, supports 4K video output via HDMI, SATA 3.0 2.5-inch drive support, USB 3.0 connectivity, and is centered around a Braswell SoC. Powering the unit is the Intel Celeron N3050, which is a dual-core part with 1.6GHz base frequency and 2.16GHz Turbo. This Braswell part has a 6 Watt TDP, supports up to 8GB of DDR3L-1600MHz memory, and has Intel HD Graphics running at 600MHz.

This NUC comes down to being an interesting Braswell design and should be noticeably faster than the common Bay Trail Celeron NUC. In the days ahead on Phoronix I'll be running all sorts of Linux benchmarks from this first Braswell device and compare its performance to the Bay Trail NUC and Broadwell NUC, etc.

This dual-core, low-power mini PC sells for just $145 USD on where it's currently in-stock with free shipping. Stay tuned for the Linux tests.
