Intel has decided to stop developing its line of Compute Cards but it would continue to sell its existing line for the time being and offer support for the current generation of products through 2019.

Intel showcased its Compute Card platform early in 2017 as a modular component to be incorporated into a wide variety of devices, which is built to accommodate a system on chip (SoC), memory, storage and wireless connectivity together to provide computing power.

“But with no more cards in development, the dream of upgrading the small, interchangeable computers instead of entire devices, like all-in-ones or laptops, seems to have stalled,” the report added. VOA

“Compute Cards were Intel’s vision of modular computing that would allow customers to continually update point of sale systems, all-in-one desktops, laptops and other devices. Pull out one card, replace it with another, and you have a new CPU, plus RAM and storage,” Tom’s Hardware website reported late on Friday.
