The Intel Compute Card is a product that we heard about at CES 2017, this is what we think will be the successor to the compute stick. Intel is going with a modular design here and the Intel Compute Card is supposed to make the upgrade easier for the user and one can just remove the Compute Card and slide it into the new device or something more powerful.

While not much was revealed about the Intel Compute Card, the company did say that the device will have plenty of processing power. Now we have some leaks that show how this device will work and the leak also reveals that there are 4 different models. 2 of these will feature Apollo Lake CPUs and the other pair will feature Kaby Lake CPUs.

One of the Apollo Lake models will feature an Intel Celeron N3450 that has 4-cores and a base clock of 1.1 GHz and can boost to 2.2 GHz, not too bad. The other model features an Intel Pentium N4200, this also has 4-cores and a base clock of 1.1 GHz but this can boost to 2.5 GHz.

Talking about the Kaby Lake series, we have a model that features the Intel Core m3-7Y30. This CPU has 2-cores and 4-threads and has a base clock of 1.0 GHz and can boost to 2.6 GHz. The other variant has an Intel Core i5-7Y57. This CPU also has 2-cores and 4-threads and a base clock of 1.2 GHz and can boost to 3.3 GHz.

Other specifications of the Apollo Lake Intel Compute Cards are as follows:

  • System Memory: 4GB dual channel LPDDR3-1866
  • Storage: 64 eMMC flash, SPI flash for BIOS
  • Connectivity: Intel Wireless-AC 7265 (2×2 802.11ac & Bluetooth 4.2)
  • Compute Card connector
  • USB type C part with  USB 3.x, USB CC (Configuration Channel), DisplayPort 1.2 and USB 2.0 signals
  • Extended part with USB 2.0, DisplayPort 1.2, USB 3.x, 2x multiplexed SATA & PCIe x1 interfaces

Other specifications of the Kaby Lake Intel Compute Cards are as follows:

  • System Memory: 4GB dual channel LPDDR3-1866
  • Storage: 128GB PCIe SSD, SPI flash for BIOS
  • Connectivity: Intel Wireless-AC 8265 (2×2 802.11ac & Bluetooth 4.2)
  • Compute Card connector
  • USB type C part with  USB 3.x, USB CC (Configuration Channel), DisplayPort 1.2 and USB 2.0 signals
  • Extended part with USB 2.0, DisplayPort 1.2, USB 3.x,  1x multiplex Gigabit Ethernet / PCIe x1, and 1x PCIe x1
