Intel will launch Apollo Lake CPU-based Compute Stick microcomputers

Current lineup of microcomputers Intel Compute Stick includes 11 models built on processors Bay Trail, Cherry Trail and Skylake (Core M). But next year, according to published sources, we are waiting for two new models built on Apollo Lake processors. These devices provide better performance in comparison with models on processors Bay Trail and Cherry Trail, but they will be cheaper than the flagship versions on the CPU Core M.

Version with Windows 10 will be equipped with 2GB of RAM and a 32GB eMMC module. Version without OS will get 4 GB of RAM and 64GB eMMC module.

Both models will have Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.2, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, headphone jack and HDMI video output.

At the end of April this year Intel abandoned processors for smart phones and, actually, left behind a trademark Atom: Apollo Lake family processors, that replaced the “Atom» Bay Trail and Cherry Trail, is now referred to as Celeron and Pentium. So in the new Compute Stick SoC Celeron or Pentium will be used. But what kind of CPU exactly is still a question.
