Just released: The Quark. A fully “synthesizable” piece of silicon. Specially designed for the internet of things. It’s one fifth the size of the smallest chip Intel made until now and it uses one tenth of the energy. Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said that the Quark is specially meant for wearables. Although Intel has created a new device group, they say they won’t come to the market with self designed wearable computers. It’s just for “inspiration”. Well, the future will tell whether this statement will hold. Meanwhile we can expect a lot of innovations from other IoT-developers using this new tiny piece of tech.
