You’ll see the Hybrid Ultrabook ‘Letexo’ , graphics, media and touch demonstrations, Windows 8, security, VPro and more.
In the lead-up to his Ultrabook-focused presentation Kirk Skaugen, VP and GM of Intel’s PC Client Group, talks about China’s lead as a PC consumption country. By 2015 200m more people in China will be able to afford a PC! There’s a section on how creation is important and how the Ultrabook will satisfy the left and right sides of the brain.
At 6 minutes in, Kirk begins a more detailed presentation of the Ultrabook project where he mentions 75 designs being developed on Ivy Bridge. There’s a section on the huge Ultrabook marketing campaign, a Chinese version of the ‘Wild West’ Ultrabook advert, an overview of the three stages of the Ultrabook project ending with the 4th generation Intel Core processor, Haswell. Kirk talks about a ‘70%’ performance increase in the GPU compared to Sandy Bridge and goes public for the first time about new support for 3 screens, DX11, OpenCL 1.1 and OpenGL 3.1 in the new GPU. The HD 2500 and HD 4000 are ‘retina display ready.’
At 15:04 you’ll see the Hybrid Ultrabook. It’s an Intel internal concept design. Letexo (Hence Lxo branding seen in the previous presentation.)
Graphics and Thunderbolt are covered and demonstrations include regular PC-based builds showing Ivy Bridge performance. Security,a big section and demonstration with touch and Windows 8, an all-in-one lay-flat PC, VPro (coming to Ultrabooks) , and to close, a section on the Intel ‘Small Business Advantage.’
