Intel: laptops in the near future no longer need cables




Intel has a future in which laptops being wireless. Not only the Internet would then be set up wirelessly, also charging dock and possibly a docking station could without using cables.

Intel logo That said Intel CEO Kirk Skaugen during a presentation at Computex. The chip giant thinks charging cables properly when the industry switches to charge wireless. Few years to the past Intel is part of the Wireless Power 4 Alliance, a coalition of companies that endorses the Rezence-charging technology. This technique is based on magnetic resonance and should be strong enough to recharge., Not only smartphones and tablets, but also laptops Skaugen showed an arrangement in which a table was equipped with a Rezence charger. By simply putting a laptop on the table started this loading.

Also pair it with a docking station, something that is important for the business market, according to Intel without the intervention of physical wires and connectors. This would require the WiGig standard can be deployed. The manufacturer used in a demonstration laptop based on a Broadwell processor fitted with a wireless chip that can handle WiGig. By imposing the laptop simply near a receiver the image of the laptop was wirelessly transmitted to an external monitor. It is intended that the technology eventually will support. Input devices like keyboard and mouse, but also external drives WiGig is a wireless standard that operates in the 60GHz band with maximum speeds that are up to three times faster than the fastest version of WiFi, 802.11ac.

Intel intends to include in its next reference design for laptops, which should come with the same Skylake chip architecture, the successor of Broadwell. From these wireless technologies That will be sometime towards the end of 2015.
