At the IDF 2014 conference, Intel Crop. has announced to release its next generation Skylake microprocessors in the 2nd half of next year, along with WiDi and WiGig powered cable-less PCs and tablets.
Intel continues its vision for the future of PCs on the second day of Intel Developers Forum (IDF) in San Francisco. The announcement was part of Intel’s plan to explore computing and to realize the concept of integrating that makes more convenient and faster than before.
A lot of focus on newly 14nm Core M processor, which would be actually based on the Broadwell architecture-According to officials.
Intel CEO Brain Krzanich’s said, SKaugen introduced the upgrade to Broadwell, which will be known as Skylake. Recently, Intel released mobile versions of chips based on its new micro-architectures then later on to the desktop products.
The main advantage of Skylake platform is that none of the wires, charges or the connectors will be used. Imagine where the technology has been reached and how easy it will be for the users to work with this device, without bothering much. Intel is a part of Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP) a standard called “Rezence”.
The two ways to discard the display cable problem are: The first is through Wireless Display (WiDi) & the second is through Wireless Gigabit (WiGig). These 2 technologies that will be implemented to usher completely in wireless era.
WiDi 5.0 is more for long range display connections, and there will be WiDi pro version too. While WiGig is a docking technology in which it is 10x faster than WiDi, hence it takes a lot of data, but shorter distance and less latency.
Intel’s are also planning to produce “millions” of full-power chips in Broadwell family so that it can be sold under conventional Core i3, i5 and i7 brand and plans to launch these chips in the first quarter of 2015.
