Intel Apollo Lake Compute Sticks Coming in Q2 2017

Orange Pi Development Boards

Apollo Lake processors have been announced in mini PCs, laptops, development boards, systems-on-module, as well as in Intel’s own NUCs. A new leaked roadmap has now revealed that Intel plans to two Apollo Lake “Michigan City” compute sticks sometimes around Q2 2017.

  • Windows OS – 2GB RAM, 32GB eMMC flash
  • No OS – 4GB RAM, 64 GB eMMC flash

Both devices will come with 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2, a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and an HDMI port with CEC support, as well as a 1- year warranty.

That’s all we know from the leaked roadmap. Price should probably be only slightly higher than to the one of Atom Cherry Trail HDMI TV sticks, considering UP2 Board is selling for 89 Euros (Celeron N3350 dual core version) and 169 Euros (Pentium N4200 quad core version) , and performance of the Apollo Lake Celeron or Pentium processor used in the new sticks should be noticeably better than the Atom “Bay Trail” / “Cherry Trail” processor found in earlier sticks.
