Remember the desktop PC? Intel is trying to reinvent it

Intel this week tried to breathe some life into a device category that's not exactly fertile ground: the desktop PC.
At the Game Developers Conference, the chipmaker said it was reinventing the desktop PC.
How is it being reinvented? "The desktop has gone from just a beige tower to all these new [designs]: touch, 170+ desktop [all-in-one] focused apps," an Intel spokesman told CNET.
In the GDC release, Intel goes on to cite "tiny PCs," small Steambox gaming systems, and portable AIO (all-in-one) PCs in the kitchen as reinvention.
Probably better, however, to call it a tweak to the desktop PC's internals, at least as far as Intel is concerned. Those modifications include the chipmaker's first 8-core processor for gaming rigs.


"For those who demand the highest processor core count and memory bandwidth on the desktop, Intel will deliver an 8-core, 16-thread Intel Core processor Extreme Edition in the second half of this year," Lisa Graff, an Intel vice president and general manager, said at GDC earlier this week.

Silly me. And here I am seriously wishing that I could find a new beige Antec 1030 tower case.

Desktop PCs with touch...? What is this? Why would you need touch on a desktop PC?

I ask myself this same question whenever I walk through BestBuy.
