Intel today held a special event where spoke about the innovations in store for Computex 2019. One of these is Project Athena. In fact it is a platform laptops of the future, which, according to the manufacturer, will be much better than the current.

In the framework of the work on the platform Intel is trying to improve laptops from all sides to increase their productivity, autonomy, communication speed and even embed some sort of intelligence. To interact with the hardware component manufacturers Intel opens three laboratories in Taipei (Taiwan), Shanghai (China) and Folsom (CA). Their activity will consist in the training of partners to large-scale production of laptops an entirely new generation.

Project Atherna was announced at CES 2019 as a response to the actions of Qualcomm and its always connected pc with the processors on the ARM architecture. While such a bit, but Intel understands that with the further optimization of Windows on ARM and cheapening of the components of the venture Qualcomm could become a serious threat to Intel and its x86 CPU. Moreover, the lack of CPU Intel is already pushing many to look for the ARM processors that Qualcomm is able to ship in sufficient quantity. For example, there are rumors that Microsoft may introduce a budget version of the Surface tablet based on ARM processor.

So the time delay from Intel is not, so the laboratory opened in June. They'll offer partners the reference platform and the various diagrams with the directions of the sets of components which should simplify the process of developing a new generation of laptops.

On the characteristics of such a PC is said in common phrases-slogans: autonomy at the level of one day (i.e. about 20 hours), increasing performance and responsiveness while maintaining compactness and large variability of sizes, artificial intelligence, fast and reliable Network connection (there is no 5G anywhere at all).

Apparently, in Atherna Project will be regulated using 10-nanometer processors Ice Lake, which will provide some benefit in terms of autonomy due to the transition to finer process technology and at the same time will demonstrate the performance gains due to the new GPU.

notebook Edition, created by Project Atherna, is expected by the end of the year. In a minimum configuration it will cost $800.
