Intel (INTC +1.8%) roundup: 1) Intel follows up on its first Haswell launches by unveiling over a dozen CPUs aimed at notebooks and tablets/convertibles. Intel promises an 11% ultrabook performance boost relative to Ivy Bridge, and 7+ days of standby. Though Intel wants $600 ultrabooks in 2013, near-term pricing is a concern. 2) Intel claims 15 convertible designs are in the pipeline, and that there should be 50 by year's end. Plenty of designs are being shown off at Computex. 3) Intel's VC arm is creating a $100M fund to invest in "perceptual computing" tech such as voice/gesture control and emotion sensing. 4) Intel shows off a demo phone containing its Merrifield Atom CPU. The 22nm chip will ship early next year, and compete against Qualcomm (QCOM) and Nvidia's (NVDA) high-end offerings.

    Over a dozen CPUs for notebooks and tablets/convertibles???? It seems quite a lot, nes pas? Class/Types, divisions, subdivisions, sub-sub divisions? With so many offerings, I expect some very specialized hardware in this mix that go way beyond web surfing, light gaming, shopping, and other minor fare. I'm no techie, so I trust the experts here at SA to inform me why the need for so many and what kinda education Intel will provide consumers to help 'em chose the right cpu for their needs.
