Intel Goes Mini - and Powerful

Intel is moving forward and putting their chips in some pretty small boxes themselves.  Over at Sweclockers they have a look at a Core i5 system in a box about 4" by 4".  That's pretty small - but when it packs Core i5 power - you don't have to give up much.  The website is translated from Swedish, so it may sound a bit odd.


Despite its compact dimensions, there is room for a lot of components. Intel includes everything from Core i3 processor to Thunderbolt, USB, WLAN, Bluetooth and HDMI. All circuits are soldered and of the same type that are commonly found in laptops.
