Intel Teams With HP To Design Concept PC 2001
Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor Platform Used for HP's Future PC Innovation
LAS VEGAS, Nov. 13, 2001 - Intel Corporation today unveiled "Concept PC 2001," a joint collaboration between Intel Labs and Hewlett-Packard's Business Desktop Division Labs that uses the power of the Intel® Pentium® 4 processor platform for future PC innovation. With the use of Universal Serial Bus 2.0 (USB 2.0), Concept PC 2001 uniquely places computing components into separate "personal" and "computing" elements for revolutionary space savings and flexibility.
"Concept PC 2001 demonstrates that high performance computing doesn't have to sacrifice personal versatility and user flexibility," said Pat Gelsinger, chief technology officer, Intel Corporation. "Intel Labs works with PC manufacturers to validate and investigate the latest in PC technology to provide the most innovative computing solutions for business and consumer environments."
The computing element measures 4.5"H x 12.8"W x 14.8"D and contains sealed and secure devices to offer increased control for information technology managers. The personal element, an 18-inch flat screen monitor, provides access to everything a user needs through a single component. It features a Web camera, speakers, USB plug and play connectivity, a CD-writer and a wireless keyboard and mouse with the use of Bluetooth* and RF* technologies. Additionally, the personal element can be hung from the wall or placed on a rotating arm to free up desk space and reduce clutter for ultimate adaptability.
"Concept PC 2001 exemplifies technology in transformation," said Eric Chaniot, worldwide marketing manager for HP's Business Desktop Division. "The technologies and design ideas used in this concept product will be useful in developing future HP PCs as we transform R&D into reality."
Harnessing the highest performance of the Intel Pentium 4 processor in a very small footprint, the Concept PC 2001 demonstrates a motherboard layout with an aligned airflow to improve overall thermal performance and validates industry-leading low acoustics. The concept features Microsoft* Windows XP* Pro, Bluetooth* and RF* wireless keyboard and mouse, USB 2.0, ATI low profile RADEON* 7500 AGP video adapter and DVI interface LCD monitor.
Concept PC 2001 represents the future possibilities of PC computing and is not a product for sale. Intel welcomes collaborative opportunities with PC manufacturers to investigate and explore the latest in PC technology.
