Intel Corp. this week said that it would demonstrate an array of new devices, including portable and ultra-portable products, powered by its chips at the Consumer Electronics Show in early January, 2013. At the trade-show the world will see the pinnacle of today’s innovation when it comes to mobile gadgets that are based on x86 microprocessors.

 

At the 2013 CES, Kirk Skaugen, Intel’s vice president and general manager of the PC client group, and Mike Bell, Intel’s vice president and general manager of the mobile and communications group, will provide an update on Ultrabook convertibles with touch, smartphones and tablets based on today’s third generation Intel Core i-series “Ivy Bridge” processors, Intel Atom processors as well as future technologies.

Many of the products on the display will likely employ the forthcoming Core i-series and Pentium processors with 7W - 13W power consumption, which specs recently leaked.

Throughout the show, Intel will showcase the Intel Core “Ivy Bridge” processor-powered ultrabook devices and tablets as well as several phones and tablets powered by Intel Atom processors. Numerous other Intel-powered devices from leading manufacturers will also be displayed.

Intel is set to concentrate on demonstrations of mobile and ultra-portable gadgets during the show as the demand is shifting towards them from traditional personal computers these days. In 2012, the company finally managed to enter the market of smartphones and cracked the market of tablets with its lateste system-on-chips powered by Atom processors. Therefore, from now on Intel will focus on showcasing its mobile offerings rather than high-performance products.
