Why is the Core i5 version of the new Skylake-powered NUCs so important? Up until now, Intel has reserved the Iris-powered NUCs to the higher-end Core i7 models, but now the Core i5 model will feature the better integrated graphics power. Both models will include SDXC slots, full-sized HDMI with 4K video and 7.1-channel audio support, two USB 3.0 ports on the front, two more USB 3.0 ports on the back, miniDisplayPort out, Ethernet, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.1.

We should expect a release date for the new Skylake-powered NUCs soon.
