The specs are very similar to Intel DN2820FYKH NUC, except the latter uses a dual core Intel Celeron N2820/N2830 @ 2.13/2.16Ghz (7.5W TDP) instead of the dual core Intel Celeron N2807 @ 1.58 GHz (4.3W TDP) found in GIGABYTE mini PC. GB-BXBT-2807 also adds a VGA connector, but loses the IR receiver found in Intel NUC. It’s not clear whether the system is fanless or not. You should be able to run Windows, Linux or any other x86 supported operating systems in the device.
Availability and pricing are not known at this point. More information may be available on GIGABYTE GB-BXBT-2807 product page.
