Any particular reason why you are upgrading? unless you need HDCP 2.2 there is little to no gain even compared to a gen 3 (if yours is 2 years old it will be a gen 4-5)

Yeah HDCP 2.2 support is probably the main one - looking at buying a new main TV soon.

Plus I feel like my little HTPC NUC is a bit slow.....

But I can't seem to find it available in Aus? Anyone know why? Or does Aus have a different product code?
Looks to be a couple of AU sellers with that model number: http://www.staticice.com.au/cgi-bin/...C7i7BNH&spos=3

The i7 CPU appears to be the limiting factor, with slightly more hits for the i5 model and heaps more hits for the i3 model.

Does anyone own that fancy new quad core Celeron? The one with HDMI 2.0, quad core (wtf?) and only $160 US / around $240 AUD?

Apparently it's an amazing HTPC, I'm considering one and then selling off my new and shiny Silverstone case and cute little SF supply. The nuc would be even smaller and save space.

Ive been on a Core i5 NUC as a HTPC for ages (2-3yrs old maybe?), best thing I ever did. Also run Emulstation with all the SNES/NES/Sega etc games and its perfect little bit of kit. I gave up on Linux and went to Win10 and it is still fast, responsive and easy upkeep. I would assume the quad celeron wouldnt be much different in speed to mine, so would recommend.

Do you mean this one?

Intel NUC Arches Canyon NUC6CAYH HDMI/ VGA/USB3/M2 DDR3 GBE - $215

Quote:
CPU - Intel Celeron J3455 - 1.5 GHz to 2.3 GHz burst, Quad Core, 10W TDP....

1x HDMI 2.0 port
https://ark.intel.com/products/95594...-up-to-2_3-GHz

DUAL Channel RAM (I would be getting a 2x4GB@1866MHz ($85 from Umart) as the GPU will using this as it's vRAM) as well that would move along nicely and it will do 4K@60Hz in Win10 (as well as linux).

Here's a good review of the unit with the 4K:

That's the one - it's meant to be a little beast for a HTPC. Sounds really nice.

It looks good for that price and that review shows some interesting results.

Here is it being compared with some dual cores.

http://www.cpu-monkey.com/en/cpu-int...eron_j3455-662

You can get the unit and RAM for $300 and then either add SDXC card (128GB for $65) or a SSD.

A powerful little unit for under $400.

We take ours (plus mouse and keyboard) when ever we go away and just plug it into a TV via HDMI.

You have me seriously thinking of getting one and relegating our current HTPC unit to the bedroom NUC5PPYH (which ironically is more expensive (@$228) than the NUC6CAYH).
