Will you support them with ROCK in the future?

Thanks for answering

yah… I bet they’ll just work – but let’s see… we may need new power management stuff…

I just read the NUC7i5DNHE tech. data.
Compared to the NUC7i5BNH, I don’t see much difference.
As I was going to buy a NUC7i5BNH, should I wait for the new version ?

The Optane memory option has no benefits for Roon users so if employing ROCK right now it would not be used.

It seems that Dawson Canyon NUC7i5DNHE is more expensive and has a marginally faster (but cheaper) CPU with a smaller cache. Unless I get the facts wrong, the older and cheaper NUC7i5BNH (with a more expensive CPU) is probably a better purchase.
