Let’s take a look at some of the red-hot computer related stuff which showed up at CES 2019. Nvidia real-time ray tracing sets up a revolution in graphics technology. Ray tracing is used in the Marvel films and others. It’s been around for a while but only available to the people who can afford to make superhero films.
In other words, it required substantial computational power and big bucks. Nvidia found a way to simulate light without an incredible computational cost. Their Turing architecture brings the cost way down, close to a consumer level.
Intel’s Project Athena, in collaboration with multiple manufacturers including Google, seeks to produce ultra-thin, but super performance notebooks with long battery life. Performance as in, when you open the lid, your notebook is ready to go. No waiting and waiting for it to “warm up.”
Acer premiered it’s updated Swift 7, still the world’s thinnest laptop. The Swift may be thin, but it’s mighty. The newest version features Intel’s Core i7-8500Y processor and 10 hours of battery life. Perfect for anyone whose business requires them to carry their laptop everywhere and at less than 2 pounds, with no sweat.
Dell unveiled it’s newest and brightest 27 Ultrathin monitor. For those who hunger for awesome visuals but don’t have a ton of space.
CES 2019 proves the move toward artificial intelligence, the cloud, and IoT (Internet of Things) continues to proceed at a rapid pace. Business stands to benefit as much as consumers.
