Intel's Mobile Vision
Ultrabooks, a standard for notebooks pushed by Intel back many years ago, redefined the mobile computing world. Small, versatile, and loaded with computing power, the Ultrabook standard redefined laptops as slim and lightweight devices capable of taking care of many of the tasks once designated to desktops. Now Intel wants to redefine the notebook again with project Athena and Ice Lake.
We will discuss project Athena in more detail later in this article, but for now, you need to know that Intel's primary goal is to extend battery life, provide the latest in connectivity, and integrate artificial intelligence into your computing experience.
Intel detailed Ice Lake a few weeks ago at an NDA meeting in the bay area. They promised many improvements, including integrated Thunderbolt 3, WIFI generation 6 (Wireless AX), a new microarchitecture, and a new integrated GPU.
