At Computex 2019 this week Intel has been showcasing its new dual screen gaming laptop prototype. Check out the video created by the team at the Verge for a more in-depth look at what you can expect from the “Honeycomb Glacier” gaming laptop and its unique dual screen configuration.
Intel’s dual screen Honeycomb Glacier has been specifically designed for gamers and offers a 15.6-inch 1080p primary panel and a 12.3-inch 1920 x 720 secondary screen. Currently the prototype is running a 45-watt 8-core Intel CPU and Nvidia GeForce1060 graphics, which are overclocked to 60 watts and 95 watts respectively. Intel has also added a Tobii eye-tracking camera, but unfortunately has announced whether the prototype will ever be available to purchase and if it was at what price. The Verge explains a little more about the unique hinge on the dual screen gaming laptop.
“Intel is so proud of this hinge that it wouldn’t let us take pictures or video or the internal mechanism, but it works like this: When you lift the screen, it’ll automatically stay propped up to any angle of your choice thanks to a mechanical one-way roller clutch, and you press a little black button on the left side to disengage that clutch when you want to fold it down.”
As soon as more information is released by Intel we will keep you up to speed as always but for now we will just have to do wait-and-see whether the company pushes the prototype into production.
