The Skylake-U platform for mini-PCs has turned out to be an interesting one. Numerous challenges were faced by the first one in the market - the Intel Skylake NUC. Eventual BIOS fixes made the platform realize its full potential. All these aspects made Intel's partners take it a bit slow when it came to promoting their Skylake-U mini-PCs. Vendors like GIGABYTE and ASUS have been selling their version of NUCs for a few generations now. The Beebox-S is ASRock's first play in the Core-based UCFF (ultra-compact form-factor, i.e, NUC-type machines) PC market.
Why would anybody buy this? The 5SYK is way faster and cheaper too.
