Intel Has A Credit Card Sized Computer

Intel's Compute Card alongside a credit card.

Weirdly, Intel's most well-known partners, including Lenovo, HP, and Dell, aren't ready to show off their products.

Despite its small size, there's enough space to fit one of four Intel processors, from a Celeron up to a Core i5. Each version should have 4GB of RAM with entry-level models featuring 64GB of eMMC storage and higher-end versions using 128GB of PCIe SSD storage. LG, for example, already has an all-in-one machine in the works that's powered entirely by the Compute Card.

Intel is releasing one of its smallest computers yet. It had a slot for a Compute Card in the side and was easily portable with a carrying handle built right into the top of the case. The card might also show up in tablets and interactive whiteboards.

On the first day of Computex Taipei 2017, Intel corporate vice president and general manager of the Client Computing Group Gregory Bryant delivered the opening keynote for the chip giant at the Computex e21 Forum, touching on how data is transforming the world. Then, after school, the student could take the card and insert it into a desktop dock at home.

On the PC side, Intel noted that innovation is coming from across the ecosystem, from stylishly designed always-connected 2 in 1s, to incredibly powerful high-end desktops, to solutions that focus on delivering virtual reality rather than processing data from the real world. While the limelight may have been stolen by the unveiling of its "extreme" edition Core X series processors, the American chipmaker also made its modular computer platform 'Compute Card' official.
