Intel has announced that it will open Project Athena Open Labs in Taipei, Shanghai, and Folsom, California to support performance and low-power optimization of vendor components for laptops built to its design specifications. The Project Athena Open Labs are located in key ecosystem hubs and are operated by teams of Intel engineers with SOC and platform power optimization expertise. The three labs will commence operations in June 2019. Intel says that its expanded level of integration with the PC ecosystem will accelerate the development of advanced laptop designs and capabilities. The labs will add to the component selection process for OEMs and enable a continuous cycle of tuning and testing... Read more...
