LAS VEGAS -- At CES, Intel was keen to show off its new dual-OS switching technology that's been implemented in collaboration with Asus.
It takes about three and a half seconds to switch between operating systems, as Intel demonstrates in the video below.
The switch can be done with either a hardware or software key.
What Intel enables is the rapid switching, but the way the switching and file- and memory-sharing is implemented is a proprietary Asus technology. That will likely apply to other dual-OS devices from other vendors also.
The Asus Transformer Book Duet TD300 tablet is a 13.3-inch detachable that separates from the keyboard base to become a standalone tablet.
Asus will also be bringing out an 11-inch model capable of running Windows 8.1 and Android.
