Pocket-sized Card turns mon­i­tors into PCS

Computer Active (UK) - - News -

A new com­puter the size of a credit card will trans­form mon­i­tors into full-blown PCS.

In­tel’s Com­pute Card, small enough to fit in your wal­let, comes with the ba­sic in­gre­di­ents of a PC – a pro­ces­sor, mem­ory, stor­age and Wi-fi – but has been de­signed to slot into other de­vices to let them work like a com­puter.

South Korean com­pany LG has said it will make mon­i­tors that work with the Com­pute Card, mean­ing you need to buy only a key­board and mouse to use it as a com­puter. HP and Len­ovo are also said to be work­ing on com­pat­i­ble prod­ucts.

In­tel says that the Card can also be slot­ted into a smart TV, and into the com­pany’s new dock­ing sys­tem so it could be used as a desk­top com­puter. In fu­ture, users should be able to up­grade their com­puter by in­sert­ing a new, more pow­er­ful Com­pute Card. It comes in four ver­sions, all with 4GB of mem­ory and three USB ports. Two Cards come with In­tel pro­ces­sors from the lat­est gen­er­a­tion (sev­enth), and a 128GB SSD. Less pow­er­ful are the two Cards with Celeron and Pen­tium pro­ces­sors, and 64GB EMMC stor­age. In­tel, whose slo­gan for the prod­uct is “trans­form ev­ery­thing with one card”, says that it will be on sale in Au­gust. Prices haven’t been an­nounced yet.
