Dev Opportunity as Intel Capital puts $100 Million forward for Perceptual Computing

Tags: , , , ,


2013-04-17-22780-Collage1_thumbYou saw the Creative 3D camera used in the Ultimate Coder challenge earlier this year and you probably heard that it’s going to be available as the Senz3D consumer product but there’s more going on. Intel expects depth sensors to be built into PCs by late 2014 and Intel Capital is putting $100 Million into the arena.

HD4000 Ultrabook Graphics Handle Video-encoding, Portal 2, and HD Video Playback Simultaneously With Ease [video]

Tags: , , , , , , , ,


In 2012 we’ll see the next generation of Ultrabooks featuring the Ivy Bridge platform and integrated HD4000 graphics. Existing Ultrabooks utilize HD3000 graphics which aren’t adequate for recently released blockbuster games (see the ‘Gaming’ section of our Samsung Series 5 review). HD4000 graphics are going to be very welcomed as part of the next generation of Ultrabooks for both gaming and video encoding/decoding purposes. A benchmark from Intel comparing HD2000 and HD4000 graphics gives us an idea of how HD4000 will perform, even if we don’t have a direct comparison to HD3000 yet (note that the benchmark compares desktop processors, but the changes in performance from HD3000 to HD4000 are relevant).

At IDF Beijing 2012, Intel has a demo showing the Ivy Bridge / HD4000 platform running three taxing tasks across three separate monitors simultaneously. You’ll see video encoding, gaming (Portal 2), and HD video playback all at the same time. Quite impressively, the computer handles it with relative ease. NetbookNews shot a video of the demo in action:

GoWorld Touchscreen Slider Ultrabook Prototype Hands-on Video at IDF 2012

Tags: , , , , , , , ,


At IDF Beijin 2012 GoWorld is showing off an Ultrabook prototype which uses a hybrid sliding design. Intel has been saying that one of the goals of the Ultrabook campaign is to bring the good features from the tablet realm to the laptop — things like instant-on, long standby time, thinness, and light weight. It’s no wonder that along for the ride is touchscreen functionality. Thanks to Windows 8 doing double-duty as a traditional desktop OS and also a touchscreen friendly OS with its Metro half, convertible Ultrabooks could actually become a mainstream reality.

Haier Ultrabook Hands-on Video from IDF Beijing 2012

Tags: , , , , , ,


Chinese computer maker Haier is showing off an Ultrabook this week at the 2012 Beijing Intel Develop Forum. The Haier Ultrabook is equipped with the lower end Intel Core i3-2367M processor (1.4GHz), making it less powerful, but likely more affordable, than Ultrabooks featuring Core i5 or Core i7 CPUs. NetbookNews.de is at IDF Bejing 2012 and got a hands on video of the Haier Ultrabook which you can see right here (video in German):
