Information at your fingertips.
Chances are, if you're reading Tom's, you're something of a PC enthusiast. Still, even the most committed of PC enthusiasts have trouble remembering different product naming schemes and the specs for every processor under the sun. Intel is hoping to make that a little bit easier with the launch of a brand new application for iOS and Android users.
Touted as the best source for Intel product information, ARK lets users browse, search and compare product specs and check compatibility and code names from their smartphone, even if they don't have a connection to the web. Products included in the app are processors, chipsets, desktop motherboards, SSDs, server products, and networking products.
The app is available iOS (4.3 or later) and Android (2.3 and up) and supports search via product number, ordering code, SPEC code, brand name, frequency, code name, and more. You can also download datasheets, find compatible products, and decode code names. If you don't have a smartphone, you can do all of the above from Intel's ARK website.
