News hardware Intel announces crazy things to us: Arc graphics card, iPhone sync with PC, rollable tablet…

The announcement is official, Intel is finally releasing its Arc graphics cards, but not only! The conference has just ended and we finally have all the information we were waiting for. After months of rumors, Intel is making some big announcements.

Intel Announces Arc A770 Graphics Card and More!

Intel is best known for its processors. Yet it is with graphics cards that the American manufacturer creates the surprise. Rumored for a few months, the Intel Arc are finally unveiled. The chip manufacturer is finally attacking the graphics card market against AMD and Nvidia.

Intel is proud to launch its own GPUs to take on an ultra-competitive industry, where the red and green team have been battling each other for decades. Objective : beat moore’s law, i.e. doubling the power every two years. We discovered very little information on the graphics card, except that it is 65% more powerful in Ray Tracing than the competition. You are probably wondering what “competition” is, so are we…

Maybe we should have started there, but the price? Introducing the conference in the GPU part, Patrick P. Gelsinger, the CEO of Intel explains that gaming doesn’t have to be expensive. So you will understand that the graphics card from the blue manufacturer will be affordable. According to the president, its launch price would only be 329 dollars, or about the same price in euros. In comparison, this is a lower price than an RTX 3060. Performance level you will have to wait to receive it at the editorial office to tell you more. Its launch is scheduled for October 12, it’s imminent!

Alongside it are also two other graphics cards. These are not for the general public, but for data centers. These are the Flex Series 170 and Flex 140. GPUs are super powerful and should make it possible to build the most powerful supercomputer in the world. This is the goal that Intel has set itself with these next-generation graphics cards.

Use an iPhone on Windows as on Mac

Out of nowhere, Intel announces synchronization between Android and iPhone smartphones, with Windows PCs. It is the Intel Unison app, which allows you to manage calls, messages, file transfer and notifications from your smartphone directly from your computer. You no longer need to have a Mac to have your iPhone live connected.

What we expect the most is obviously the file transfer, as by Airdrop. An announcement as unexpected as it is welcome. For now, this function will arrive on PCs equipped with 13th generation Intel Evo processors, by 2023. The official partners are currently Acer, HP and Lenovo.

And here is a rollable tablet signed Intel and Samsung

You read correctly, Intel and Samsung displays have teamed up to make a rollable touchscreen tablet. Again: unexpected announcement. In the “Intel Innovation” category, we find this tablet that unfolds to form a 17-inch screen. We can say that it is the chef’s surprise!

This tablet can also synchronize with a PC to make it a secondary screen. Your office is then extended and all wireless. There is still a small crease still present, like on foldable devices. This falcon to enlarge the screen does not seem to solve this problem. Beyond that one wonders what is the durability of such a device. Unlike a typical foldable device, there’s more than a hinge that can get dirty. It’s the whole screen that rolls up which collects, then brings the dirt inside. To see in practice what it gives.

There is also another bonus, icing on the cake! Intel has just partnered with Samsung and TMSC, two electronic chip manufacturers, to create custom processors. That is to say that on the same processor, we can find micro components from the three manufacturers, within the same product.

Overall, this conference had a lot of access around developers and artificial intelligence. We will especially remember the arrival of the new Intel 13000 processors, the teaser graphics card for a long time and this synchronization function. For the future it will be necessary to see if the drop-down tablet is a concrete project or a simple prototype.
