Intel's tiny Compute Card will start shipping in August

Intel initially unveiled its tiny Compute Card at CES in January, and now it finally has a release window. Speaking at Computex 2017, Intel announced its Compute Card will launch this August alongside hardware from partners.

To recap, the Compute Card is essentially a tiny PC around the size of a credit card. The goal, Intel says, is to make it easy to integrate the modular PC into a wide range of devices, including digital signage, AIO PCs, and "intelligent whiteboards." A number of partners, including LG, NexDock, Dell, Sharp, and Seneca are already working on hardware that leverages the Compute Card.

As for the card itself, Intel says it will be available in four different flavors, with up to an Intel Core i5 vPro processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of SSD storage.
