Intel shows off its dual screen Tiger Rapids concept PC at its CCG Open House

Intel's Tiger Rapids concept PC comes with an E Ink and LCD display.

2018 seems to be the year of dual screen PCs in some form or other. We saw ASUS’ Project Precog and the new Lenovo Yoga Book at Computex 2018, in addition to the ASUS ZenBook Pro and its touchpad that doubled as a screen.

Intel also showed off its own concept PC at Computex, a prototype that showed what the future of computing could look like. The Tiger Rapids machine is about the size of a notebook and opens to reveal a 7.9-inch FHD LCD display on the left and an E Ink display on the right.

The chipmaker brought the device to its Client Computing Group (CCG) Open House today, and while it’s not a shipping product, it offers an interesting window into the types of experiences that could become common in the future.

The device still feels kind of rough around the edges, but it does offer a level of flexibility that a traditional notebook cannot. For example, you can take notes on the E Ink screen and then access them on the LCD display through OneNote. The E Ink display also doubles as a keyboard, while retaining a small section below for note-taking.

Tiger Rapids is powered by a 7th-generation Intel Core chip. It also comes equipped with an SSD and Wi-Fi capabilities and charges via a single USB-C port.
