Page 1 of 1
A new generation of computer from Intel is the Compute Stick, a new device that enables any screen with an HDMI interface to become a fully functional personal computer. The Compute Stick comes pre-installed with the Microsoft Windows 8.1 operating system. The Intel Compute Stick is a fully-functional computer in a package similar to a large USB stick.
The new Intel Compute Stick with Windows 8.1 is powered by a 64 bit 1.83GHz Atom Z3735F Quad-Core processor with 2Mbytes cache, integrated Intel HD graphics, and multi channel digital audio. The Compute Stick plugs into any display that has an HDMI 1.4a interface. Networking is achieved with onboard IEEE 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, and peripheral connectivity is available through the Bluetooth 4.0 and USB 2.0 interfaces. Once plugged into a display’s HDMI port, the user powers the Compute Stick with a wall adapter. A status LED indicates the device is powered while both graphics and audio is provided through the HDMI port. The device can be controlled through a wireless keyboard and mouse.
The Intel Compute Stick is available from Mouser Electronics running the Microsoft Windows 8.1 operating system with 32GBytes of eMMC Flash for user file storage, 2GBytes of RAM, and a free six month subscription to McAfee Antivirus Plus. An Intel Compute Stick running Linux Ubuntu 14.04 LTS will be available at a later date. Flash user storage is expandable for both versions through a microSDXC slot on the side of the device. Once configured, the Intel Compute Stick has all the performance and functionality of a full-sized computer and can browse the web, view online video, edit photos and files, and play music.
