Intel will introduce the first laptop-compatible Intel Xeon E3-1200 processor for sale in 2021, the company announced Tuesday.
Intel said it will use the first chips, called the Xeon E5-2650V, to power notebooks for about five years, adding that it expects to launch about two dozen devices a year.
It will also offer some new features for such notebooks, such as 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.
Intel’s first chips will be the E5v and E5V2 family, Intel said in a statement.
Intel expects to have the first commercial laptops, which include the E3, in 2021.
It said the chips will cost around $15,000 and include 8GB of DDR3L RAM.
The first chips in 2021 will cost $25,000, with 16GB of RAM and an Intel Xeon processor, the statement said.
Intel plans to make up to 3 billion chips in the 2021-2022 period, and will release those chips for $15 a pop, the companies said.
The company expects to ship around 400 million chips annually.
