news hardware Intel announces crazy things: Arc graphics card, iPhone synchronization with PC, roll-up tablet…
The announcement is official, Intel is finally launching its Arc graphics cards, but not only! The conference has just ended and we finally have all the information we’ve been waiting for. After months of rumours, Intel is making some big announcements.
Intel Announces Arc A770 Graphics Card and More!
Intel is best known for its processors. However, it is with the graphics cards that the American manufacturer creates the surprise. It’s been rumored for a few months., the Intel Arc was finally unveiled. The chipmaker is finally attacking the graphics card market against AMD and Nvidia.
Intel is proud to launch its own GPUs to take on an ultra-competitive industry, where the red and green teams have been battling each other for decades. Objective : beat moore’s law, that is, doubling the power every two years. We discovered very little information about the graphics card, except that it is 65% more powerful in Ray Tracing than the competition. You’re probably wondering what “competition” is, so are we…
Maybe we should have started there, but the price? Presenting the conference in the GPU part, Patrick P. Gelsinger, the CEO of Intel explains that games don’t have to be expensive. Then you will understand that the graphics card from the blue manufacturer will be affordable. According to the president, its launch price would be only 329 dollars, or more or less the same price in euros. Compared, this is a lower price than an RTX 3060. Performance level you will have to wait to receive it in the newsroom to tell you more. Its release is scheduled for October 12, it is imminent!
Next to it are also two other graphics cards. These are not for the general public, but for data centers. These are the Flex Series 170 and Flex 140. GPUs are super powerful and should make it possible to build the most powerful supercomputer in the world. This is the goal that Intel has set for itself with these next-generation graphics cards.
Use an iPhone on Windows like on Mac
Out of the blue, Intel announces synchronization between Android and iPhone smartphones, with Windows PCs. Is about the Intel Unison application, which allows you to manage calls, messages, file transfers and notifications from your smartphone directly from your computer. You no longer need to have a Mac to have your iPhone live connected.
Obviously, what we look forward to the most is the transfer of files, such as by Airdrop. An announcement as unexpected as welcome. For now, this feature will come to PCs powered by 13th Gen Intel Evo processors by 2023. The official partners are currently Acer, HP and Lenovo.
And here is a rollable tablet signed by Intel and Samsung.
you read right, Intel and Samsung displays have teamed up to make a rollable touchscreen tablet. Again: unexpected announcement. In the category “Intel Innovation” we find this tablet that unfolds to form a 17-inch screen. We can say that it is the chef’s surprise!
This tablet can also sync with a PC to turn it into a secondary display. So your office is expanded and completely wireless. There is still a small crease still present, as in folding devices. This enlarge screen hawk does not seem to fix this problem. Beyond that, one wonders what the durability of such a device is. Unlike a typical foldable device, there’s more than just a hinge that can get dirty. It’s the whole screen that rolls up, picks up, and then brings the dirt inside. To see in practice what it gives.
There is also another advantage, the icing on the cake! Intel just teamed up with Samsung and TMSC, two electronic chipmakers, to create custom processors.. In other words, in the same processor we can find microcomponents from the three manufacturers, within the same product.
In general, this conference had a lot of access around developers and artificial intelligence. We will especially remember the arrival of the new Intel 13000 processors, the teaser graphics card for a long time and this synchronization function. Looking to the future, it will be necessary to see if the drop-down tablet is a specific project or a simple prototype.
