Credit-sized card from Intel turns your monitor into a PC

Credit-sized card from Intel turns your monitor into a PC

Intel's Compute Card, measuring just 9.5cm by 5.5cm (only just larger than a credit card), will transform monitors into full-blown PCs. It is designed to slot into other devices to allow them to work as a computer. LG has announced that it will make monitors that work with the Compute Card. Other manufacturers, such as HP, Dell, and Lenovo, are said to be working on similar products, but have yet to release details. The card will come in four versions, each of which will have 4GB of memory, three USB ports, Bluetooth 4.2 and .11ac wireless. Two models will have 64 GB eMMC storage, and two will have 128 GB SSD drives. The latter two models will use Intel’s 7th Gen Core i3 and i5 processors (m3-7Y30 and i5-7Y57 respectively). Intel says that the cards will be on sale in August, although no prices have yet been announced, and availability in New Zealand has yet to be confirmed.
