Intel introduces three new Compute Stick versions that run Windows 10

If you’re not familiar with Intel’s Compute Stick, introduced in April of 2015, you should know that these USB thumb drive-sized sticks (almost) connect to your TV or screen via HDMI, and offer a full fledged computer experience. At the 2016 CES, Intel introduced its next generation of Compute Stick products, that are smaller, and powerful upgrades over the first generation.

Three Intel Compute Stick variants are available: the entry level runs on a quad-core Intel Atom x5-Z8300 processor, has 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and two USB ports. The other two are powered by more powerful processors: Intel Core M3-6Y30 and Intel Core m5-6Y57 vPro, both with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and three USB ports. Windows 10 will come pre-installed on the Atom and Core M3 version (not on the Core M5) and will set you back $159, $399, and $499.

Production is planned to start by February 2016.
