Besides showing off some pretty slick graphics card concepts, Intel was also showing off their Honeycomb Glacier at Computex 2019. This is a new dual-screen form factor laptop concept which Intel hopes to encourage OEM partners to run with the idea.
Intel is actually not releasing this laptop, but they are looking to drive form factor innovation into high performance systems, “to enable new experiences for gamers and creators.”
“Intel is collaborating with OEMs to bring to market companion display systems based on this visionary concept and powered by the latest 9th Gen Intel Core mobile processors, with the first being the ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo with ScreenPad Plus,” Intel says.
The whole idea is a traditional laptop with a secondary display that sits above the keyboard. Intel says this design lends itself to more immersive gaming experiences by making important information persistent on the secondary screen.
The thing that really caught my attention with Intel’s design is the ability to angle the bottom screen up and have the main display sit higher, which would be pretty awesome for gaming and streaming as it puts the second screen in front of you rather than flat on the same surface as the keyboard.
The first laptop to use this design is the ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo, which does not have the ability to adjust the viewing angle of the bottom display.
