    Many years ago i bought a Gigabyte BRIX-4770R, a QUADCORE powerhouse i7 that is still going strong...

    After that many new barebones from intel and gigabye appear to be all merely dualcore. Which New/To Be Released barebone will be a QUADCORE powerhouses that is worth upgrading to compared to and will be substantially faster than my 4770R i7 quadcore? Thanks & cheers!

    Thanks! But thats over a year old!

    1. I am looking currently at models such as the already released Intel NUC NUC7i7BNH and Gigabyte GB-BKi7HA-7500 but it doesnt state on the websites weather its a dualcore or a quadcore.

    2. Also I am interested in weather anybody knows what newer models are planned in the roadplan ahead in the near future (within 1 year)

    Your welcome! :) indeed nice. I myself was looking specifically into the tiny cubic models that disassembled can lie FLAT(!) for approx 500-700$.
    I want to use the parts to build in my own project so thats why i am looking into the models resembling the BRIX stacked design that can be made flat.

    meanwhile look at the specs of this powerhouse you found: a 7700 qudcore i7! Im guessing this will be expensive (+/- 1000$+)

    DC 19.5V @ 9.23A? That's a 180W brick. Well, I guess, 45W CPU, ? GPU (40-50W) -- that's theoretically ~100W already plus chipset plus four disks... I guess it's better to overshoot a bit.

    Yeah indeed! my quadcore i7 4770R from 2013 is 20% more economic at 19V @ 7.1A :)
