-

At CES 2020, the processor-giant Intel unveiled its own take at the foldable PC genre. The company announced its Foldable PC prototype called the ‘Horseshoe Bend.’

Talking about foldable PCs, you have probably heard about the Lenovo ThinkPad X1, which was the Tablet-PC with a 13-inch AMOLED screen and an Intel processor. Well, Intel went out of its way and introduced a foldable PC of its own. The Horseshoe Bend has the characteristics of being a proper PC, not a Tablet-PC like the ThinkPad X1.

One of the first things you will notice about this new technology by Intel is its massive display. It has an AMOLED display in a ratio of 4:3 and 17.3 inches diagonal when unfolded. At this size, it is as good as any other laptop available in the market right now, and you can bend the display from the center and use it as a laptop.

Not only scrolling, but you can use this huge display for your editing jobs also. As shown in this clip, you can easily operate or control the timeline directly where normally your keyboard would be present.

Scrolling content on this display is so satisfying, as you can see in this clip. The content seems to be never-ending or in an infinity-loop. There is also a surface-style kickstand on the device. You can use place it as a monitor, connect it with a wireless keyboard, and use it as a full-fledged PC to take your experience to another level.

Taking a look at the configuration, the Horseshoe Bend is powered by Intel’s new processor based on 10nm Tiger Lake architecture. 9W is the TDP consumed by this chip, and it supports no active cooling. The shell on this foldable PC prototype is approx 7mm thick.

Taking about the Operating system, the Horseshoe Bend was running the Windows 10 OS, but Intel has said that according to them, the upcoming Windows 10x will be a much better fit for this new iteration.
