Intel launches powerful processor
Taipei, Taiwan, June 5, 2013
Intel has launched its fourth generation Inter Core Processor family, ushering in a wave of new Ultrabook and emerging two-in-one devices.
At Computex Taipei 2013, executive vice president Tom Kilroy said Intel has more than 50 different two-in-one designs in the pipeline across a range of price points, including premium Ultrabook two-in-ones powered by the new Intel Core processors, and other designs powered by forthcoming processors based on the company’s 22nm Silvermont microarchitecture.
Kilroy also highlighted momentum in ultra-mobility, pointing to Intel’s next-generation 22nm quad-core and most powerful Intel Atom system-on-chip (SoC; codenamed “Bay Trail-T”) yet for tablets coming this holiday, the company’s forthcoming 4G LTE multimode solution and its next-generation 22nm Atom SoC (codenamed “Merrifield”) for smartphones.
Designed first and foremost with the Ultrabook in mind and based on the company’s flagship 22nm Haswell microarchitecture, the 4th generation Intel Core processors deliver a 50 per cent increase in battery life in active workloads over the previous generation, said a statement.
Intel’s newest Core processors are the first SoCs for PCs and power a variety of devices, including Ultrabook, two-in-one and portable all-in-one designs. Systems based on the quad-core version of the new Core processors are available now, with additional versions available in the coming months, it said.
Offered on select versions of the new Intel Core processors, Intel Iris graphics bring the Ultrabook and other mobile PCs to life with built-in visual experiences, it added
Kilroy also showcased the addition of touch, voice and facial recognition and other technologies, called perceptual computing, to make interaction with devices natural, intuitive and immersive.
Intel’s 22nm low-power, high-performance Silvermont microarchitecture is enabling the company to accelerate and significantly enhance its tablet and smartphone offerings, a statement said.
Intel’s next-generation, 22nm quad-core Atom SoC (“Bay Trail-T”) will deliver superior graphics and more than two times the CPU performance of the current generation for tablets, and increased performance and battery life for smartphones, it said. - TradeArabia News Service
