Intel aiming to eliminate wires from PC by 2016

Kirk Skaugen, senior vice president, and general manager of the PC Client Group at Intel has said the chipmaker wants to completely eliminate wires from computers, and is working on a series of wireless technologies to make that a reality by 2016, PC World has reported. PCs are on the way to a “true no-wire” experience, and Intel is developing WiGig modules for laptops, desktops and high-resolution displays. WiGig has the potential to replace HDMI and DisplayPort technologies, and wireless modules could be integrated in PCs as early as next year, Skaugen said during a speech at the Computex trade show in Taipei.
