Intel's modular Compute Card puts a PC in your pocket


Originally shown off at, Intel has four models of the Compute Card planned for release.

Intel's Craig Raymond holds up a Compute Card enabled all-in-one from LG Display during a keynote at Computex in Taipei.

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.

Created to be the core for various devices like digital signage, kiosks, smart TVs, and even 2-in-1 computers, the Compute Card is functionally a complete computer that's still small enough to fit inside a wallet. 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.

The Intel Compute Card offers the capabilities of a full computer but in the size of a credit card. "The applications are endless - smart screens, interactive appliances, smart factories and more - and it's a ideal complement to everything else we are doing to bring more compute power and connectivity into the home and beyond". These devices will all be at the show and vary widely.

Most of the first wave of hardware will come from contract PC makers, but Intel said three big brand names are also working on devices: Dell, HP and Lenovo.

We've known about Intel's Compute Card since CES in January, but Intel waited until Computex this week to officially reveal what we can expect in terms of specs and options.
