Intel Honeycomb Glacier Prototype Gaming Laptop

Dual monitors are the thing now! As seen in Computex 2019, Intel’s Honeycomb Glacier laptop effectively places two displays on top of each other (see also Asus ZenBook Pro Duo). The main display is a 15.6in Full HD display and the second is a 12.3in 1920 x 720 screen. To keep both screens in place, there is a hinge with a mechanical one-way roller clutch that locks the displays in a selected orientation until a button is pressed to disengage the lock. Smart and dual, what can we say.

Talking about the specs, there is an eight-core/16 thread, 9th Gen H-series Intel processor and an overclocked Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070. There’s a Tobii eye-tracker in the hinge, which makes it easier to manage the two displays. You will be able to use it to move your gaze between multiple windows and type without clicking to switch between apps. The bottom display is a great spot for social media, chat applications or managing streaming.

We have to remember that the Honeycomb Glacier is a prototype and still an early bird in this area. Nevertheless, Intel is planning to make more new prototypes.
