Intel debuts Compute Card at Computex 2017, with Dell and HP as partners

Intel has officially unveiled its Compute Cards at Computex 2017, giving us our first look at the super-slim, fully functioning PCs. Along with a selection of differently specced processors, they all come with 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of onboard PCI Express, solid-state (SSD) storage. Intel has already secured a number of partners in this venture, so we can expect Compute Card enabled products to arrive before the end of the year.

I think it's more about the size really, like mini PCs they lack a lot of power compared to a more meaty PC, but they will have some uses I am sure where size is an issue.

My Pc cluster takes a lot of power to run... 1.6kW

The main reason I've not built a cluster from raspberry pi's is because they aren't full pc's; and so can't run my version of windows or any of my software modules.

But a stack of these... hmmmm...
