Windows 10 PCs with 5G connectivity arriving next year

Ismael LynchFeb 23, 2018

Intel expects to showcase a concept 5G PC during the Mobile World Congress 2018 conference and expo, set to be held in Barcelona from February 26 through March 1. The company describes its preview system as a detachable 2-in-1 running an early 5G modem and an undisclosed eighth-generation Core i5 CPU.

The chipmaker on Thursday announced their upcoming XMM 8000 modems will be integrated into several laptops from Dell, HP, Microsoft and Lenovo by 2019.

While 5G is yet another jump in wireless connectivity, it will bring with it the capability to do mass data-intensive workloads while outside the office.

While the second half of 2019 is Intel's current target for bringing 5G to PCs, it's always a possibility that could be pushed back. Intel suggested that its technology could enable users to play multiplayer games while riding in a self-driving vehicle. The final product is expected to become available in 2016, and it will pair the Intel XMM 8000-series 5G modem with an application processor made by Spreadtrum. Together, the two organizations plan to develop a 5G smartphone platform based on Intel modems for the Chinese market.

The company said it'll show off what 5G might look like in a laptop at a special Mobile World Congress demonstration next week. Just yesterday, AT&T announced that it would begin offering mobile 5G services to customers in a dozen cities across the U.S. The Intel 5G deployments there featured end-to-end 5G technologies and solutions including mobile edge computing, FlexRan, Intel's Automotive Trial Platform and its 5G Mobile Trial Platform. Intel is fighting Qualcomm and Samsung in this market so this partnership is pretty important for them.

And today, Lenovo said it would expand operations of its telecom and Internet of Things segment to advance development of 5G and other technologies.
