Foldable is now History. Slidable PC is The New Thing

Slidable PC

Slidable PCSamsung Display and Intel are working on slidable PCs with a screen that extends out

Samsung Display and Intel are working on slidable PCs with a screen that extends out to a much larger size when you pull the edge. It is the world’s fastest desktop processor offering the world’s best gaming experience.  The device will satisfy the need for both a large screen and portability. Lacking a keyboard, the slidable PC looked more like a tablet. It isn’t clear when or even if the slidable PC idea will mature into a product.

Moving parts and flexible components heighten the challenges of complexity and reliability. These types of new form factors desperately need the software and apps to make them shine, and it’s not clear yet how Intel will make slidable PCs a reality. Although the slidable PC prototype didn’t have a keyboard, one could be added as the design matures. This chip delivers the best gaming, streaming, and recording experience, highlighting improvements to both the Performance cores and Efficiency cores of the new hybrid architecture.


Slidable PC is the new thing:

The prototype device that Samsung Display and Intel have shown off today, instead of folding the display like the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4, the prototype slides out from a 13-inch tablet into a 17-inch monitor with a flexible display and a sliding mechanism. It’s unclear whether Samsung and Intel plan to partner to make this product commercially available. The design shows how the PC industry continues to try out new hardware to extend beyond traditional clamshell laptops with a keyboard and screen connected by a hinge.

The slidable PC itself is just a concept for now, and there’s no word from Intel or Samsung Display on when it will become a reality. It offers 24 cores, and 32 threads, and is clocked at 5.8GHz. It adds up to 15% improved single-threaded performance and up to a 41% boost for multi-threaded performance. There’ll be a 128GB memory capacity for the combined DDR5 and DDR4 RAM with Max Turbo Power of 253W.

Samsung Display has chosen to implement a sliding technology for its flexible PC displays, and Choi appeared to indicate that foldable is gone on PCs for now. Intel was quick to demonstrate its new Unison software on this display, which aims to connect Intel-powered computers to smartphones. It’s a good sign for Intel’s partnerships with these companies that are pushing the boundaries of futuristic display technology. 2023 will be a big year for foldable laptops, and Samsung seems interested in jumping on that trend.
