Taipei, Taiwan (UPI) Jun 4, 2013
U.S. chip giant Intel says its new fourth-generation Core processors will serve as the foundation for a wave of new ultrabooks and 2-in-1 devices.
Intel is banking on the new family of processors, unveiled Monday at Computex Taipei 2013 in Taiwan, rejuvenating a PC market seeing declining sales as consumers turn to smartphones and tablets for their computing needs.
In Taipei, company Executive Vice President Tom Kilroy said Intel has more than 50 different 2-in-1 designs in the pipeline across a range of prices, ZDNet reported.
Intel characterized 2-in-1's as devices that "deliver a PC when you need it and a tablet when you want it."
The new chips can deliver a 50 percent increase in battery life "in active workloads" over the previous generation, Intel said.
Traditional laptops and desktops as well as 2-in-1's with the new processors are set to begin arriving this summer, it said.
