Regarding "Expected Discontinuance", we're told to "See Roadmap" on the RYK & RYH. Where does one find the roadmap?
The roadmap is an internal document. You may find some version of it online, but it will most likely not be the current one. If I had to guess, I would say the RY models will reach the end of their life at the same time (they're the same unit, other than one supporting 2.5" drives), while MY will have its own path because it's marketed toward businesses rather than consumers.
Sorry for the delay.
In fact no it doesn't help really. I know ARK already.
What I'd like to know is what "RYK", "RYK", "MYHE" mean.
But it's ok.
RYK stands for the model's code name "Rock canYon". No idea why they use the "K", but they always have.
RYH is the same code name, but the "H" indicates it supports a 2.5" hard drive. So "Rock canYon, Hard drive supported"
MYHE stands for the model's code name "Maple Canyon", the fact that it supports a 2.5" hard drive, and I believe the "E" is for Enterprise. So "Maple canYon, Hard drive supported, Enterprise model"
Just to confuse things a little more, you will see that the motherboard inside these products is also uniquely identified (in Visual BIOS and within the SMBIOS data table that is exposed by manageability software and the Windows System Control Panel applet), For the first two cases, the motherboard is identified as NUC5i3RYB (or NUC5i5RYB or NUC5i7RYB). For the last case, the motherboard is identified as NUC5i3MYB (or NUC5i5MYB)...
Thank you very much for the comments from all the peers on this thread, we appreciate that since that information is very valuable.
To aaroni, I hope the above information was useful for you.
Any questions, please let me know.
