According to a new report, Intel has decided to end further development of its Compute Cards. The device was about the same size as a credit card and had the core components that make up a PC. This included a processor, RAM, storage, wireless modem, and more. The device was first showcased by Intel at CES 2017 and it seems that the company isn’t interested in making them anymore.
The idea behind the Compute cards was to provide companies with a simple solution to create products similar to docking stations which could be easily upgraded when Intel released new versions of the Compute Cards.
That would have meant the upgradation process would have been as simple as taking out a Compute Card and popping in a new one. Tom’s Hardware reports that Intel will no longer be making new versions of the Compute Card, ending the project after just one generation of its 7th Gen processors. It didn’t even receive its first upgraded version.
“We continue to believe modular computing is a market where there are many opportunities for innovation,” a spokesperson for the company said, adding that a decision has been made to “not develop new Compute Card products moving forward.” Intel will be selling all of the remaining inventory that it has throughout the end of this year.
