  • Intel 5G lands in PCs next year

The XMM 8060 is the first of the company's coming XMM 8000 series of commercial 5G multimode modems, Sandra Rivera, senior vice president and general manager of Intel's Network Platforms Group, noted in an editorial today.

Consumers could see the first mobile PCs with 5G connectivity hit the market by the second half of next year, according to Intel, which is working with Dell, HP, Lenovo, and Microsoft to develop such devices. Intel describes the prototype 2-in-1 as "one of many stepping stones for moving the industry forward in what's possible for 5G-enabled PCs".

"This is not just PC clamshell [laptop] form factors", Intel's Rob Topol told reporters this week.

As well as the proof-of-concept PCs, Intel announced an alliance with a core subsidiary of the semiconductor company Tsinghua Unigroup for a long-term strategic collaboration on 5G.

And the company will be showing this convertible off - and more to the point the power of 5G - by livestreaming a video to the machine over a 5G network.

Intel will also use the event to showcase a thin PC equipped with 802.11ax Wi-Fi, as well as eSIM functionality for connected PCs.

Intel is investing across its wireless portfolio and partners to bring 5G-connected mobile PCs to market, with benefits for users, like high-quality video on-the-go, high-end gaming, and seamless connections as users traverse Wi-Fi and cellular networks.

Meanwhile, earlier this month Qualcomm announced partnerships with 19 mobile device makers and 18 carriers to bring Snapdragon X50 family 5G modems to devices sold across the world, starting in 2019. The Intel 5G deployments there featured end-to-end 5G technologies and solutions including mobile edge computing, FlexRan, Intel's Automotive Trial Platform and its 5G Mobile Trial Platform.
