Intel Compute Card

The Intel Compute Card is a microcomputer designed to bring Intel-powered compute into everyday devices—simply and efficiently. To best embody this, the Intel Compute Card illustrates a clean and dynamic design aesthetic, with user-centered ergonomics and seamless usability with its ecosystem. The pure pill-shape form of the Intel Compute Card securely protects the complex internal technology, with a color and material break that provides a quick-read visual cue of proper orientation and alignment for card insertion. The chassis—made of aluminum with a fine textured sandblast finish—offers an inviting and tactile experience between the user and the systems it works within, and maintains an appropriate allowance of high-volume manufacturability. This new Compute Card product category allows for devices to be upgraded seamlessly, without burdening the end user—or the environment—to buy an entirely new device or system.
