Intel Delivering the Future of Mobile Experiences at Computex Taipei 2014

June 4, 2013 – Speaking at an Intel Corporation event at Computex, Kirk Skaugen, senior vice president and general manager of the PC Client Group and Hermann Eul, corporate vice president and general manager of the Mobile and Communications Group highlighted key advances and efforts the company is making to deliver integrated, smart and connected devices, including: new, enhanced user experiences; momentum and innovation for tablets and LTE; and progress and reinvention of the 2 in 1 and desktop categories.

Innovation in Tablets

Intel continues to push the boundaries of innovation to bring new experiences to and build momentum for Intel-based tablets. During his speech, Eul highlighted that Intel currently has 130 tablet design wins that are either in market or will be in market this year from global OEMs and ODMs. More than a dozen Intel-based tablets are launching at the Computex timeframe, including those from customers such as Acer*, ASUS*, Dell*, KD Interactive*, Lenovo* and Toshiba*. Approximately 35 percent of Intel®  Atom™ processor-based tablet designs currently include or will include Intel communications solutions.

Key customers joined Eul on stage to talk about their collaboration with Intel. Jason Chen, CEO of Acer, announced a new agreement with Intel on the development and distribution of Intel-based tablets including the Acer Iconia Tab 8* that was just launched. ASUS CEO, Jerry Shen, put a spotlight on his company’s new Intel-based tablets launched at Computex and also spoke to the successful introduction of the Intel-based ASUS ZenFone* series smartphones that boast stunning performance and battery life with great value. Finally, Young Liu, general manager of Foxconn* Innovation Digital System Business Group also joined Eul on stage to reiterate the company’s announcement of more than 10 Intel-based tablets available now or coming soon, ranging from the entry to performance segments. The tablets are based on Intel Atom processors (code-named “Bay Trail” or “Clovertrail+”) and many include Intel’s 3G or LTE communications platforms. Foxconn will help secure its offerings by incorporating McAfee Mobile Security and Intel Device Protection technology1 into some designs. Foxconn also said it plans to deliver mobile devices based on Intel’s new integrated mobile SoC, code-named SoFIA.

To further extend its support for the industry, Intel is expanding its reference design program for tablets to include a turnkey solution for phones based on SoFIA. Intel’s reference design program  provides master reference designs, tools and brand support to help partners innovate on Intel® architecture.

Eul also demonstrated the leading performance that Intel is providing to its customers. He showed how popular usages and applications run 1.3 to 2.5 times faster on the 64-bit ready, quad-core Intel® AtomTM Z3700 series entry processor (“Bay Trail”) versus a competitor’s eight-core processor on similar tablets2. Intel testing also showed the new dual-core Intel Atom processor (“Merrifield”) outperformed this competitive SoC3.

More and more software developers are also developing apps optimized for Intel architectue.  As an example, Eul showed how Intel processors, running the popular app ooVoo*, enable great HD graphics on video conferencing via the Intel Architecture Media SDK, allowing people to take clearer pictures and capture wider shots. A competitive tablet allows only standard definition image with less image quality3.

Intel Advancing in LTE

Intel’s LTE business is ramping as customers incorporate the Intel® XMM™ 7160 LTE platform into more devices and as the company readies its LTE-Advanced platform (Intel® XMM™ 7260) for availability in the second quarter. Eul announced that Intel® XMM™ 7260 is now shipping to customers for interoperability testing and emphasized this puts Intel into a leadership position with a category 6 platform capable of 300 Mbps peak download speeds.

14nm Intel® Core™ M Processor for Fanless 2 in 1 Designs

The Intel Core M processor will be the first 14nm product in market in the second half of this year. It was purpose-built for detachable 2 in 1s, delivering both a lightning-fast tablet and a razor-thin laptop. The majority of designs will be fanless – delivering thin, cool and quiet devices. It is the most energy-efficient Intel Core processor in the company’s history4.

Skaugen showcased Intel’s detachable 2 in 1 Intel Core M-based reference design, code-named “Llama Mountain.” With the keyboard detached, measures just 7.2mm, is fanless and weighs only 670 grams. It features a 12.5-inch QHD (2560×1440) display developed by SHARP*, as well as a thin, detachable keyboard and media dock that provides additional cooling for a burst in performance. This performance scalability is a significant advantage available with Intel Core silicon. The 10-inch tablet version of “Llama Mountain” is just 550 grams and a mere 6.8mm thin. 2 in 1 momentum continues with innovative designs across the spectrum of form factors and price points. There are three times the volume of new designs in the pipeline compared with a year ago, 50 percent of which are expected to hit mainstream price points below $700. Today, there are  60 different 2 in 1 systems in market spanning all the top manufacturers, screen sizes, segments and prices. And this will scale in the second half of this year, with new devices expected this holiday season.

Accelerating the Reinvention of the Desktop and Entry-Level PCs

This week, Intel announced introduced Intel’s first processor that runs 4 GHz on four cores simultaneously the unlocked 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor for enthusiasts, code named Devils Canyon. At an overclocking event at Computex, competitors set a new world record, and were successful in achieving 5.5 GHz on all four cores, using air/liquid cooling.

New innovations in product performance, user experience, and form factors including all-in-ones (AIO) and mini-PCs are also driving a new wave of excitement for the desktop PC. Skaugen reiterated the excitement around Intel’s first 4-core, 4 GHz unlocked Intel® Core™ i7 processor, code-named “Devil’s Canyon” for enthusiasts. To celebrate over 20 years of Intel® Pentium® processors, Intel also announced the Intel® Pentium® Processor Anniversary Edition, an unlocked desktop processor that will enable a new generation of PC overclockers. Both will be available in volume this month.

Intel is improving the PC experience by delivering an immersive experience to the PC through stunning visuals. In order to bring this to mainstream users, Intel is enabling high quality 4K 23.6-inch PLS monitors through its ecosystem partners and today announced they will be available at half the price, as low as $399, by the end of the third quarter. Intel has also enabled sub-$1000 Intel Core-based 4K all-in-one PCs, shipping by the end of July.

Intel is bringing new experiences to portable AIOs and announced a new set of Hasbro’s* popular games including Risk, Scrabble, and The Game of Life targeted for availability in the second half of this year.

Intel also discussed its continued expansion into the entry device category with the Intel® Pentium® processor and the Intel® Celeron® processor based on the Bay Trail M and D SoCs.  Available since last holiday season, these processors have improved CPU and graphics performance and will power over 150 value notebook and desktop designs starting at $249 this summer, including numerous designs supporting Windows 8.1 with Bing*. A number of new AIO’s will also be available for as low as $349.

New, Enhanced User Experiences

Intel is enhancing the computing experience by eliminating people’s frustrations with technology, making computing more immersive and enabling human-like natural interaction. During the satellite event, Skaugen outlined how Intel plans to eliminate wires from computing devices with reference designs coming for the Intel Core processor family after Broadwell. He demonstrated technology that allows power to be transferred through a table, while powering multiple devices. Additionally, Intel and the board of the industry standard A4WP announced several new companies have signed on as members to further the advancement of A4WP wireless charging technology, including Dell*, Fujitsu*, Lenovo*, Logitech* and Panasonic*.
