Skylake may be a long way off from now, but Intel is not above teasing some of the devices that will be powered by the sixth generation Core processor. Two devices made a short appearance at Intel’s keynote at Computex 2015, including a convertible All-in-One.
Codenamed “Skybrook”, the AiO looked more like an oversized tablet with its slim design and folding stand. The computer was also absurdly light as Kirk Saugen, Senior VP of Intel’s Client Computing Group, held it up with barely any effort. Saugen also quipped about how Asians love big phones, and wondered if the Skybrook would be big enough to qualify.
Alongside it was a more traditional 2-in-1 laptop codenamed “Panther Mountain”. No details were provided about the device, but it looks to be just another laptop with keyboard dock. It wouldn’t be surprising if the there were any extra standing modes for the device.
Skylake is expected to arrive in the later half of this year, while these two mystery devices were said to be ready for the market in the middle of 2016.
