Intel introduced its new 2010 Intel Core family of processors, claiming to deliver integration and smart performance, including Intel Turbo Boost Technology for laptops, desktops and embedded devices.
The introduction of new Intel Core i7, i5 and i3 chips coincides with the arrival of Intel's new 32 nanometer (nm) manufacturing process -- which will be used to immediately produce and deliver processors and features at a variety of price points, and integrate high-definition graphics inside the processor, according to the company.
Intel is unveiling several platform products, including more than 25 processors, wireless adapters and chipsets, including new Core i7, i5 and i3 processors, Intel 5 Series Chipsets, and Centrino Wi-Fi and WiMAX adapters.
In India systems are likely to be available from OEMs like HCL, Wipro, Zenith, Acer, MSI, Asus, HP, Lenovo, Sony, Toshiba and Dell as well as from local channel partners.
"For the first time, there's a new family of Intel processors with the industry's most advanced technology available immediately at virtually every PC price point," said R Ravichandran, Director-Sales, Intel South Asia. "These smart processors adapt to an individual's needs, automatically providing a 'boost' of performance for everyday applications. They become energy efficient to the point of shutting down processing cores or reducing power consumption to provide performance when people need it, and energy efficient when they don't."
In addition, entry-level workstations now available based on Intel Core i5 with Intel HD graphics or an Intel Xeon 3400 series processors and the Intel 3450 Chipset. Intel will also offer the new 2010 Intel Core processor family on vPro Technology later in the quarter to help IT managers and corporations take advantage of hardware-assisted security and manageability capabilities, said the statement.
