CES is always fun. And, it’s especially fun for us at Intel® and for our partners. So, in case you didn’t make it to the extravaganza that is CES, here are some highlights.
Right from the get-go, we highlighted our newest technologies in a breathtaking fashion. Here’s my favorite testimonial: “Intel gave us barf bags for its CES VR keynote.” Okay, maybe ‘testimonial’ isn’t a completely accurate description.
Nonetheless, we’re excited to be leading the way with new innovations in technologies that power every segment of the smart and connected world. We’re pushing through the boundaries of technology with computing and connectivity breakthroughs in key areas. These include virtual reality, an SOC Compute Card, 5G technology and self-driving cars—to name a few. Intel is breaking new ground in these spaces with the singular goal of making the most amazing experiences possible.
Technology not Limited by Creativity
Exciting! Intel announced a new modular compute platform called the Intel® Compute Card in collaboration with a range of partners. The Intel® Compute Card has all the elements of a full computer. These include Intel SoC, memory, storage and wireless connectivity with flexible I/O options. This is a perfect platform to build new IoT applications on. It will be available in mid-2017 with a range of processor options, including the latest 7th Gen Intel® Core™ processors.
Ground Breaking! The new Intel® 5G Modem introduced last week is a milestone for the industry. It enables businesses across the globe to develop and launch early 5G solutions. It will accelerate the development of 5G-enabled IoT devices and applications. Connecting and enabling intelligence for the 50 billion connected IoT devices that are coming demands a new generation of network.
Creativity not Limited by Technology
Compelling! CEO Brian Krzanich articulated the company’s vision for the future of VR and merged reality technology. He described Intel’s vision of how these technologies will reinvent our experiences around travel, work safety, sports and gaming. Pairing Intel® RealSense™ depth-sensing technology with volumetric video will create sets of new experiential data. Unlocking this new data will enable Technology Providers to offer a whole new set of services to customers.
Futuristic! Intel, BMW Group and Mobileye announced that a fleet of 40 autonomous cars will be on the road this year. This demonstrates the significant advances made by the three companies’ joint efforts toward fully autonomous driving. Intel brings to the partnership innovative, high performance computing elements that span from the vehicle to the data center.
