Intel Corp, which is a semiconductor giant has now expanded its Project Athena open Labs which was also revealed this year and originally designed to be with the set of guidelines and standard for the makers to follow to create some of the next generation laptops. As a part of the expansion, the project will also allow the participation of not just the laptop manufacturers, but also laptop component vendors and makers which can even test their parts as the three labs Intel is opening in China, California, and Taiwan.
These labs will also support low power optimization and performance. Athena will be the first step in readying the next wave of the Athena designs for the year 2020, according to the report.
The labs will begin its operations in the month of June this year and will have the Intel engineers with the System on Chip and platform power optimization expertise, working with some of the other experts from the component designers and manufacturers.
“Each of us plays an important role in delivering the advanced laptops of today and the future. These labs are a critical step in enabling more extensive, day-to-day collaboration with the components ecosystem to continuously raise the bar for innovation across the platform,” said Josh Newman, vice-president and general manager of PC innovation segments and client computing group at Intel.
Intel also revealed that the project Athena is rooted with the extensive research to understand how people use their smartphones and the bigger challenges they face. The company social scientists and engineers have also developed a set of key experience requirements to enable some of the new experiences and capitalize on the latest Emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and 5G.
