Nvidia Kal El in notebook too

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Windows 8+ word
Back at Build conference, Microsoft didn’t only show Core i5 tablets and the rest of X86 based systems - they had a few machines based on ARM as well.

One of them was based on quad core Kal El Nvidia processor and you can see it live here. It runs quite smooth on this demo.

Another thing that Nvidia, a few VPs we talked to recently as well as Microsoft want to point out is that ARM won’t be for tablets only. There will be notebooks with keyboards and processors such as Kal El and they should not cost that much money either. One of them was demonstrated back at Computex 2011 here.

So the future of mobile computing are tablets, tablets with keyboards that you can detatch, such as Asus Transformer, or regular notebooks. This is at least a future painted with ARM architecture, and traditionally ARM solutions should end up cheaper than X86.

The real fight starts with the introduction of Window 8 but this will go down in late 2012.

so... we are going to have windows 8 split not only on tablets but now on laptops and desktops between ARM and x86 because Nvidia is pushing its turdgra chip everywhere through its false advertising and empty promises.

It is Kal-el tablet not notebook.

Anyway I don't like windows 8 GUI with huge icons, it feels like I'm a person with eye problem.

hmmmm.thats weird somehow. it seems to me, that kal-el with its 4 cores might be heavily overengineered for the smartphone-segment and its old 40nm structures will suck up such an enormous amount of power, that nvidia is now saying: "nnnjaaah, well its designed for tablets(which do not sell very good without a rotten apple on its case) and even notebooks(where some AMD C or E processors will give you much more bang for the buck than a quad core cortex a9 with its not so brilliant fp-performance) in the first place".

Saw the video, yeah the icons looked like it was meant for blind people as for the windows portion, I took notice that things took a bit to load up when they clicked on it, time is around 1:45 on the video
