Here’s the word from Edge today:
Unveiled at CES in Las Vegas, Project Fiona runs on Windows 8 and Intel’s i7 Ivy Bridge processor, meaning gamepad-supporting PC games will run natively on the tablet with no need for ports. Developers will, however, be able to add Fiona-exclusive control options to their games.
Brad Graff, director of partner marketing for Intel’s netbook and tablet group, said: “Project Fiona’s combination of high performance Intel-based gaming hardware and innovative tablet design is specifically focused for PC gamers. It will unleash the PC gamer to play their existing and future high-end games in one of the most exciting new form factors – a tablet.”
The company is looking to sell this sucker for $1000 at the end of 2012.
