Rectron brings Intel Desktop Board to SA

Apr 1, 2013

IT product distributor Rectron has debuted Intel’s new Desktop Board (DC3217 IYE) to South Africa.

Intel’s ultra-small Desktop Boards are the “next unit of computing” (NUC) and deliver unmatched performance with striking visuals, powered by the company’s smart third generation Intel Core i3 processor – all on a small four-by-four-inch motherboard housed in a small, sleek and durable casing.

“It’s an ideal intelligent device for small spaces with multiple uses. It is a perfect engine for digital signage, kiosks, home theatre systems, and it can be described as a micro-PC, powerful enough for simple desktop use – or anywhere else you can imagine,” says Sebastian Isaac, business development manager at Rectron.

The NUC is perfectly flexible and customisable, offering wireless streaming, connecting other devices in the home or office. Digital media, like movies, images or even games, are smoothly and seamlessly transferred from device to device.

For instance, users can drive two digital displays at once with dual-HDMI, maintaining vibrant visuals. Multi-tasking and moving between applications is a breeze due to Intel’s Hyper-Threading and Thunderbolt technology, which dramatically improves data transfer rates. It is performance users can instantly see and feel.

“Not only is the Intel NUC small in size, though high on performance, but also saves on electricity usage. In normal operation it uses roughly 20 watts power compared to your standard 350 watts a normal desktop station uses. The Intel NUC offers performance and savings all in one package,” Isaac concludes.
