Insider, Quick Sync Video, and a new version of Wireless Display (WiDi) some key features
Intel has launched 2nd generation Intel Core processor family at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
The new offering includes Insider, Quick Sync Video, and a new version of the company’s Wireless Display (WiDi), which now adds 1080p HD and content protection for those wishing to beam premium HD content from their laptop screen to their TV.
The company claims the 2nd generation Intel Core processor family is the first ‘visibly smart’ microarchitecture to combine visual and 3D graphics technology with microprocessors on a single chip.
The newly architected Intel HD Graphics on each 32nm die enables graphics performance improvements over previous-generation graphics for both HD media processing and mainstream gaming.
The new processor graphics technology will focus on the areas, including high-definition (HD) video, photos, mainstream gaming, multi-tasking and online socialising and multimedia.
In addition, the new offering features Intel Insider, which will give consumers access to movies on their PCs in full high-definition that were not available before.
The 2nd generation Intel Core processor family comes with Quick Sync Video, which is a built-in hardware that makes editing and sharing videos easier.
The Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors also include the enhanced Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, which automatically reallocates processor core and processor graphics resources to accelerate performance.
The new chip features Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX), InTru 3D, and Clear Video Technology HD.
The company has also unveiled an array of SKUs including vPro enabled processors.
Intel unveiled more than 20 processors, wireless adapters and chipsets, including new Core i7, i5 and i3 processors, 6 Series Chipsets, and Centrino WiFi and WiMAX adapters.
The company said that more than 500 laptop and desktop PC platform designs are expected from all major computer makers worldwide based on the above products.
Intel said that the quad-core-based systems (four processors inside one chip) would be available on 9 January 2011, while additional dual-core versions will be available in February.
