Intel launches 3rd Generation Intel Core processors in Davao-A A +A
Friday, July 20, 2012
INTEL Philippines launched on Wednesday in Davao City its Intel Ivy Bridge, a 3rd generation Intel Core processor family that will bring increased performance for gamers, media enthusiasts and mainstream users.
"We are looking at this evolution. It's a fast-paced evolution," Intel Philippines country manager Ricky Banaag said during the press launch at the Pinnacle Hotel and Suites Davao.
Banaag was referring to Intel's new quad-core processors which are available in powerful, high-end desktop, laptop and sleek all-in-one (AIO) designs. The new processors are the first chips in the world produced using Intel's 22-nanometer (nm) 3-D tri-Gate transistor technology.
With as much as 20 percent microprocessor performance improvements and new technologies to speed the flow of data to and from the chips, the new processors further extend Intel's overall performance leadership. All the things people love to do on their PCs--from creating and editing videos and photos, surfing the Web, watching HD movies or playing mainstream games--are now quicker, crisper and more life-like.
Banaag also highlighted the company's efforts to deliver user-centric experiences across a range of mobile devices from the Ultrabook to smartphones and tablets, pointing to momentum across all three.
"Our life experiences are defined by our senses--by what we see, hear and touch," Banaag said in a statement. "These human senses are also at the foundation of Intel's vision for the Ultrabook to deliver a no-compromise, must-have computing experience."
Banaag said they decided to launch the Intel Ivy Bridge in Davao because the city is a key area in Mindnao in the adaptation of technology.
More than 35 new ultra-sleek, ultra-responsive Ultrabook systems are available now or will be for purchase within 30 days, with more than 110 designs expected in the next year. Powered by 3rd generation Intel Core processors, these new Ultrabook devices are more responsive and offer enhanced security in a selection of stylish designs for consumers and business users.
In addition to increased responsiveness and enhanced security features, Ultrabook devices powered by the new 3rd generation Intel Core processors deliver up to two times the media and graphics performance compared to the previous generation, long battery life and offer more choice of stylish, thin designs.
This new wave of Ultrabook devices wakes up in a flash, meaning systems will transition from hibernation mode to an active state in less than 7 seconds and will also load favorite applications quickly1. Intel® Smart Connect Technology helps keep email and social networks automatically updated even while the Ultrabook sleeps, thus conserving power and battery life.
As security becomes more important to consumers who want peace of mind in the protection of their data and personal assets, the next wave of Ultrabook systems is equipped with enhanced security features, including Intel® Anti-Theft Technology that lets users automatically disable the system if it is lost or stolen.
Additionally, all 3rd generation Intel Core processor-based Ultrabook devices have Intel® Identity Protection technology built in to keep peoples' identity safe and ensure that their favorite websites and social networks know it's really them when logging in. (CRAM)
