Two’s company when editing with Intel

Intel will build dual screen support into its upcoming all-singing, all-dancing motherboards. Concept models have been doing the rounds at the IDF but are not designed for sale, more as a display of what Intel technology can support.

Intel has demonstrated a new concept, dual-screen support system at the Intel Developer Forum. The system, known as Marble Falls, will not go on sale but is designed to give PC manufacturers a starting point and show what Intel’s new technology can do.

This dual monitor set-up is particularly helpful for those working in editing suites and, with a Pentium 4 processor on-board, it is capable of real time editing across the two screens. This means you can use the editing package, with its timeline and video and audio elements displayed on one screen and watch the footage play and adapt on the other screen as you make your edit.

The machine uses a next generation Intel chipset equipped with dual channel DDR 400 memory, an 800MHz system bus and Serial ATA peripheral interface. The system is also bristling with connectivity, including Gigabit LAN, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It also has an ultra quiet Seagate Barracuda V as hard drive, as well as a Mobility Radeon 9000 graphics chip.
