Intel launched the 6th Generation Intel Core processor family, which deemed to be the company’s best processors ever.
The company believes that the new line of Core processors will deliver enhanced performance and new immersive experiences at the lowest power levels ever. Additionally, the new processor family supports the broadest range of device designs – from the ultra-mobile compute stick, to 2 in 1s and huge high-definition All-in-One desktops, to new mobile workstations, according to Intel.
6th Gen Intel Core processors offers better performance, and boost the battery life
The 6th Gen Intel Core processors, built on the new Skylake microarchitecture on the company’s 14nm manufacturing process technology, deliver up to two and a half times better performance, triple the battery life, and graphics that are 30 times better for seamless and smooth gaming and video experiences versus the average 5-year-old computer.
The new processors range is very thin. They have faster wake up time and battery life that lasts virtually all day, according to the company.
Intel said that Core M processors, which can offer twice the performance of premium tablets, will now include brand levels Intel Core m3, m5 and m7 processors. This will provide people with more clarity and choice in finding the Intel Core M processor-based device that best meets their specific needs, Intel said.
The 6th Gen Intel Core and Intel Xeon platforms will offer a variety of new features and experiences. More devices will feature Thunderbolt 3 for USB Type-C, enabling one compact port that does it all. A user-facing or world-facing Intel RealSense Camera will be available on a range of new 6th Gen Intel Core processor-based 2 in 1s, notebooks and All-in-One desktop systems, offering 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, Intel said in a statement.
In addition, the company said that the 6th Gen Intel Core processor family optimize Windows 10 features such as Cortana and Windows Hello for more seamless and natural interaction with technology.
“6th Gen Intel Core processors deliver some of the most significant advancements in computing that we’ve ever seen,” states Kirk Skaugen, Intel senior vice president and general manager of the Client Computing Group.
“New 6th Gen Intel Core-based systems are more responsive than ever with enhanced performance, battery life and security. And they can enable amazing new PC experiences like logging into your computer with your face and having a personal assistant respond to your voice. The combination of 6th Gen Intel Core processors, Windows 10 and beautiful new systems from PC manufacturers make this the best time ever to buy a new computer.”
In the coming months, Intel said it is planning to offer 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.
Furthermore, the company is offering more than 25 products for the Internet of Things (IoT) with up to 7-year long-life supply and 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,” Intel said.
