Recognising the changing scenario of the way people are opting for Ultrabooks and tablets for doing their work while on the move, Intel today introduced the 4th Generation Intel Core processor family in India. Based on Intel‘s leading 22nm microarchitecture, the 4th generation Intel Core processors deliver up to 50 percent increase in battery life in active workloads over the previous generation. This is the largest generation-over-generation gain in the company‘s history, giving upto 9 hours of battery life or 10 to 13 days of standby time for some Ultrabooks based on the new processors.
The 4th generation Intel Core processors will also serve as the foundation for a new era of 2-in-1 computing. A 2-in-1 device works as a PC when you need it and a tablet when you want to use it while on the go.
The new Intel Core processors are ideal for Ultrabooks as well as 2-in-1 or hybrid devices, powered by the 4th gen Core processors are perfect for the new age Indian constantly on the move. The 4th Generation Intel Core processors are capable of delivering up to 15 percent better performance than the previous generation while consuming lower amounts of power.
“Today we deliver on the vision set forth 2 years ago to reinvent personal computing with the introduction of our 4th Generation Intel Core processors,” said Leighton Phillips, Director, Product Management & Pricing, Intel Asia-Pacific.”Today’s announcement accelerates a new category of 2-in-1 computing devices delivering the best of a notebook and a tablet in amazing new form factors”.
Speaking at the launch, Debjani Ghosh, Managing Director, Sales and Marketing Group, Intel South Asia said: “The 4th Generation Intel Core processors offer the most significant gain in battery life ever achieved by Intel, up to double the graphics and significant CPU performance improvements that will deliver an exciting user experience. Improvement have been made keeping in mind the user’s needs and requirements of a power efficient, high performance device.”
Also present to support the launch of the new processor family were representatives from Acer India Pvt. Ltd; Dell India; HP India and Lenovo India. They informed that they will be incorporating 4th Generation Intel Core Processors in their upcoming Ultrabooks.
Besides having great battery life and savings on power, the 4th Generation Intel Core Processors will enable you to experience every day computing approximately two times faster. The systems can boot up approximately eight times faster and users will have the ability to edit and share HD video about 20 times faster; than a similar 4-year-old computer.
All new Ultrabooks powered with 4th Generation Core processor will be touch-enabled and have Intel Wireless Display capability built in to bring natural touch and motion interactivity and speed mode for low-latency gaming on the big screen. Ultrabooks are also equipped with built in security capabilities including Intel Identity Protection Technology (Intel IPT) and Intel Anti-Theft Technology (Intel AT) for more secure computing.
With the introduction of “perceptual computing”, Intel technology allows people to interact with their computing devices by using gestures, expressions, and language that humans use with each other.
Speaking at the launch, Ms. Ghosh further said,”For decades we‘ve been working not only on creating compelling computing experiences in the country but we‘ve also focused on building awareness of the importance of personal computing and increased domestic technology adoption in India. This launch further strengthens our resolve to bring a slew of exciting computing experiences to life for Indian consumers.”
Last year Intel in India launched the National Digital Literacy Mission where it partnered with other industry players and the government to drive digital literacy in India. In addition, Intel has recently undertaken a nationwide campaign to spread awareness on the importance of personal computing device in every household.
