Intel D54250WYKH Haswell NUC Kit with 2.5" Drive Slot Mini-Reviewby Ganesh T S on May 18, 2014 10:15 AM EST
Performance Metrics - I
The D54250WYKH was evaluated using our standard test suite for low power desktops / industrial PCs. We have recently revamped our benchmark suite (after the publication of the D54250WYK review). We reran some of the new benchmarks on the original NUC also, but some of them couldn't be run on loaner samples. Therefore, the list of PCs in each graph might not be the same.
Futuremark PCMark 8
This is one of the new tests in our test suite. PCMark 8 provides various usage scenarios (home, creative and work) and offers ways to benchmark both baseline (CPU-only) as well as OpenCL accelerated (CPU + GPU) performance. We benchmarked select PCs for the OpenCL accelerated performance in all three usage scenarios.
Miscellaneous Futuremark Benchmarks
3D Rendering - CINEBENCH R15
We have moved on from R11.5 to R15 for 3D rendering evaluation. CINEBENCH R15 provides three benchmark modes - OpenGL, single threaded and multi-threaded. Evaluation of select PCs in all three modes provided us the following results.

Android Bob - Wednesday, July 2, 2014 - linkBought an Intel D54250WYKH NUC a few days ago and installed Win8.1 on it.
Used 8GB 1866MHz G.Skill F3-1866C10D-8GRSL memory with no problems thus far.
Intel 7260 Wireless-AC gives me 200Mbps real throughput on 5GHz 40MHz as measured to a NAS via a Linksys E4200v1 router running TomatoUSB fw. Using 220.127.116.11 Intel driver on Wireless-AC card and it's very stable with no issues noted.
Was looking for an every day 'Desktop' with low noise, low power usage and the D54250WYKH provides that and then some.
Not looking to do any 'real' gaming on my NUC, but as a reference I was able to get 46000 3DMark Ice Storm score with a stock win8.1 build and G.Skill 1866MHz memory.
With a small TDP increase this can be pushed out to a score of 48000 on 3DMark Ice Storm.
Tomik - Tuesday, December 9, 2014 - linkDoes anyone have the spec for the required SATA cable for this unit?
xbn - Thursday, December 11, 2014 - linkWill it fit BOTH and mSata drive and a regular 2½" SATA drive?
