Intel said its 5th generation Intel Core vPro processor – targeting 2 in 1s, Ultrabooks, ultrathin clamshells and mini PCs – will offer up to double battery life and double the performance, enabling form factors that are up to three times thinner and 50 percent lighter than a laptop PC four years ago.
Using these advanced devices — on 5th generation Intel Core vPro processor — workers and companies can improve their productivity.
With the new 5th generation Intel Core vPro processors, Intel addresses three specific areas to enable a better way to work and provide a better experience for users and companies: PC design innovation, wireless display and wireless docking.
Intel Pro Wireless Display (Intel Pro WiDi) makes every presentation and conference room a cable-free zone. While delivering enhanced usability for business users with flexible presenter controls and privacy, it also supports key IT requirements such as wireless channel management to mitigate network congestion risk and security vulnerabilities.
Intel Wireless Docking allows users to be connected and ready to work the moment they walk up to their desk. This wire-free technology based on Intel Wireless Gigabit technology enables systems to automatically dock to monitors, keyboards, mice and USB accessories and eliminates the need for traditional mechanical docks.
“With new devices based on 5th generation Intel Core vPro processors, we aim to transform the user experience by helping them compute from virtually anywhere without the clutter and burden of wires,” said Tom Garrison, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Business Client Platforms.
12 leading PC manufacturers are expected to bring out new 2 in 1s, Ultrabooks, ultrathin clamshells and mini PCs based on 5th generation Intel Core vPro processors. There is more in the pipeline.
When paired with the Intel Solid-State Drive Pro 2500 Series, IT departments can implement built-in data encryption capabilities, while users enjoy protection.
