Intel's Skylake chips will power PCs as thin as tablets, compute sticks - CNET

Hoping for a Wintel PC upgrade wave

"Skaugen highlighted some features made possible through Windows 10 and the new Skylake processors, including modern standby and instant go. Users can start desktop computers in less than half a second. And Intel's RealSense camera can enable consumers to unlock their computers using facial and retinal recognition, instead of having to enter passwords manually. Skaugen demonstrated the accuracy of the feature by having a set of twins show the computer could tell the difference between them.

Another big push by Intel has been RealSense, the company's camera technology that acts as the eyes and ears of a computing device. Introduced last year and found today in select laptops and tablets, RealSense cameras are capable of measuring depth, recognizing faces and enabling gesture control. Intel believes developers can find many uses for RealSense, including making robots to designing hands-free musical instruments."
