Intel’s so-called ‘compute sticks’ already came to light last October, and now one of Intel’s executives, Kirk Skaugen, affirmed that this type of dongles will allow devices such as televisions or monitors to be “given intelligence”.
The first models are based on Intel Atom processors from the Bay Trail family, and as in the case of the Chromecast, they have a male HDMI connector to connect them to the television or monitor with this input. In those dongles we find 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage capacity, a microSD slot, and support for 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. We even have two USB 2.0 ports. The price of this “computing stick” is about $ 120 in some online stores.
That configuration is ready to work with Windows 8.1 in addition to Linux or Android.
