Intel has launched its next generation of processors dubbed Intel Core 6th Generation. Unlike the previous editions of Intel Core processors, the new 6th Gen Intel Core processor family enables a broad range of designs to fit virtually every need.
Intel Core M processors, promise to deliver double the performance of leading premium tablets. The manufacturer claims the latest Intel Core m3, m5 and m7 processors will provide people with more clarity and choice in finding the Intel Core M processor-based device that best meets their specific needs. Moreover, the Intel Compute Stick lineup expands to include a version powered by the 6th Gen Intel Core M processor.
The latest generation of Intel processors also includes a mobile "K" SKU (StockKeeping Unit) that is unlocked to enable overclocking with more user control, a new quad-core Intel Core i5 processor that offers up to 60 percent improved mobile multitasking, and the Intel Xeon E3 processor family, which will be responsible to power up mobile workstations.
The 6th Gen Intel Core processors family also promises to deliver significant improvements in graphics performance with the capability to 4K content creation and media playback. The newly introduced Intel Speed Shift technology also claims to improvise the responsiveness of mobile systems so people can, for example, apply a photo filter up to 45 percent faster.
In addition, the 6th Gen Intel Core and Intel Xeon platforms will also offer a variety of new features and experiences. More devices will now feature Thunderbolt 3 for USB Type-C, enabling one compact port that does it all.
Intel RealSense Camera will also be available on a range of new 6th Gen Intel Core processor-based 2 in 1s, notebooks and All-in-One desktop systems, to offer new depth-sensing capabilities and immersive experiences that allow people to do things like take and share lifelike 3-D selfies, scan objects and print in 3-D, and easily remove and change their background during a video chat.
The 6th Gen Intel Core platform will also advance Intel's "no wires" initiative to deliver the best experience for wireless display available today with Intel WiDi or Pro WiDi. This technology allows people to easily share screens from their computer to a TV, monitor or projector without the mess of wires and dongles.
The 6th Gen Intel Core processor family will also help to optimise Windows 10 features such as Cortana and Windows Hello for more seamless and natural interaction with technology. Devices with the Intel RealSense Camera paired with Windows Hello let people securely log in using facial recognition. True Key technology by Intel Security is also available on many 6th Gen Intel Core processor-based systems to deliver a secure experience for logging into devices and websites without the need to remember each site's password.
In the coming months, Intel plans to launch more than 48 processors in the 6th Gen Intel Core processor family, featuring Intel Iris and Iris Pro graphics, as well as Intel Xeon E3-1500M processor family for mobile workstations and 6th Gen Intel vPro processors for business and enterprises. A variety of devices across a wide range of form factors will be available now and over the coming months from manufacturers around the world.
In addition, Intel is offering more than 25 products for the Internet of Things (IoT) with up to seven-year long-life supply, error correcting code (ECC) at multiple TDP levels.
Retail, medical, industrial, and digital surveillance and security industries will all benefit from the new 6th Gen Intel Core processor improvements and includes IoT designs from the edge to the cloud.
