Summary: The chipmaker is pushing for computers based around its next generation of processors to eliminate cables for power and peripherals.
Intel will push PC manufacturers to put completely wireless computers on shelves by the end of next year.
The chipmaker expects computers based around its next generation Intel Skylake processors, expected to be in systems before the end of 2015, to eliminate cables for power and peripherals.
Intel informs the design of computers based on its processors by producing reference designs for manufacturers. The firm's reference designs for Skylake-based 2-in-1 computers and PCs will utilise a suite of wireless technologies, Intel's general manager of the PC Client Group Kirk Skaugen said at IDF in San Francisco.
The machine will be able to wirelessly charge when in range of a board emitting power, which could be attached to the underside of the table. Both the board emitting and receiving the charge will comply with the Rezence wireless charging standard.
