It seems that Intel is also learning how to name Google, rather than using powerful names, the chip maker uses a name that is sweet and cool, like a dish. dessert, for your new gaming laptop.
Honeycomb Glacier is a gaming laptop with two extremely unique screens and hinge designs, which we have never seen before. The laptop is still being developed in the lab at Intel's Santa Clara headquarters. And The Verge's reporter was lucky enough to get inside this lab and see Intel's real ambition.
The truth is that chip makers like Intel not only focus on microprocessors, but they also spend huge amounts of money to create new markets for those chips. They create trends for the next generation of computers and collaborate with computer manufacturers to make it a reality. Sometimes they design and build a computer to create a trend.
In 2019, Intel wanted to create a new trend to replace ultra-thin and light notebooks. Honeycomb Glacier is an attempt to completely change gaming laptops, offering a unique two-screen design and completely new experiences.

This laptop has a 1080p 15.6-inch main screen, and a 12.3-inch 720p sub-screen. With a unique hinge mechanism that has never been on a laptop, the Honeycomb Glacier can lift both screens, so that the sub-screen will also have a comfortable viewing angle and become more useful.
Intel is very proud of this hinge mechanism, although it does not disclose details of the internal mechanism, but Intel also said that this mechanism works based on a roller clutch, allowing to adjust the lift angle at any any position that users want.
This special lifting mechanism also helps the laptop to have better cooling capacity. Intel unveiled the prototype Honeycomb Glacier equipped with 8-core processor and GeForce 1060 graphics chip, although not the most powerful today but still enough to meet a lot of high-configuration gaming needs.
Using two monitors at the same time, especially when playing games, is a very popular demand today. You will want to both play and watch Facebook, chat with friends on Discord or watch live stream software and read viewers' chats.
However, this demand is difficult to meet on gaming laptops, so laptops with two monitors may be the next trend of the computer industry. Intel promises to lead this trend, but it is unclear when the Honeycomb Glacier prototype will go into production.
