Intel NUC Lower Power Green Computing Boxes Review/Comparison of J3160 and J3455 Models

Intel NUC J3455 vs Vorke V1 J3160

Both are excellent units but the J3160 is nicer if you require even lower power usage (6W vs the Intel 10W).  The price is attractive on the Vorke V1 as well.  It's been said that the Intel J3455 NUC has a buggy BIOS and some other issues that require attention.

The Intel J3455 is still nice because it has 2 RAM slots but it does get hotter due to lack of fan.

The Vorke V1 runs cooler, uses less power and seems to run well out of the box.

The only consideration that should be given is really power, cost and the biggest feature the Vorke V1 loses out on is the single RAM slot which makes this a tossup and close tie.

Both are excellent units, if the single RAM slot on Vorke V1 is not an issue then go for it as the Vorke V1 does the rest better with less power and heat to boot.
