Intel replaced the Core i3 Ivy Bridge with a much more traditional and modest Dual-core Celeron 847 processor running at 1.1 GHz. The Intel HD Graphics GPU is responsible for its (theoretically) no problem in decoding video up to 1080p, it also has support for two displays simultaneously. It is in fact a version based on Intel HD2000. It also has an Intel HD Audio.

The rest of the configuration of the Intel barebone includes two SO-DIMM slots, it also accepts up to 16GB of RAM, and offers two PCI Express slots for installing expansion cards, and SSD via the mSATA port. The connectivity remains limited, but sufficient, namely two HDMI 1.4a ports, three USB 2.0 ports, and Gigabit Ethernet port.

The NUC DCCP847DYE Intel is priced at $200.
