This time last year Intel CTO Jutin Rattner visited Taiwan to announce a partnership with Taiwan’s National University and the Industrial Technology Research Insitute (ITRI), he’s back with news of the fruits of these unions today at the Intel Technology Showcase. The big technology they were showing off was an experimental memory array which enables low energy platforms through 3D stacking which should be able to push forward innovations in fields such as wearable computing.
However, at the technology showcase there were some demos that I just couldn’t wait to see roll out. Increasing battery life and getting more out of our devices is something that everyone is after. Battery technology doesn’t seem to be advancing so it’s a good thing the folks at Intel are working on solutions that will allow us to keep connected and save on power.
Intel Smart Connect technology brings Always-On-Always-Connected capabilities are already in devices on the market. What they showed off at the Intel Technology Showcase in Taipei Taiwan is how Intel Smart Connect technology could be enhanced for active content transfer like cloud content download (file transfers) and video streaming to save significant power while maintaining performance.
