Intel's SD card sized computer will not be as small as it was intended to be

Going back to the events of the CES 2014, we can remember Intel bragging about how it can easily pack a Linux-based PC with Bluetooth and WiFi into the size and shape of an SD card. Well, as it appears, only a few months before these miniscule Edison development boards were to be launched, the company seems to have changed its tack. It was revealed that these would be based on the Quark SoC which are specifically designed for the Wearables and the Internet things but now things have changed and the first Edison products will actually rely on a more traditional Atom chip.

This other sort will apparently be the same which is used in the Windows tablets and hybrids. This change has been taken into action because Edison PC based on Atom should deliver more grunt and connectivity options as compared to Quark and all this for lesser money. But Intel has finally admitted that the end result will be slightly bigger than it has previously revealed because it seems too chubby to be packed inside the size of a Micro SD.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
