Intel has introduced the fourth-generation Intel Core processor family, providing responsive, secure and powerful performance for consumers to create and consume content. With power levels as low as 6W in scenario design power, Intel is enabling thinner, lighter, cooler, quieter and fanless designs. The fourth-generation Intel Core processors are capable of delivering up to 15% better performance than the previous generation, the vendor said.
Consumer and business systems based on quad-core versions of fourth-generation Intel Core processors are now available. Summer availability is planned for 2-in-1s ultrabooks, portable all-in-ones and traditional notebooks and desktops. New mobile business products with fourth-generation Intel Core vPro will be available later this year.
The fourth-generation Intel Core processors can bring an 50% improvement in battery life over the previous generation in active workloads when watching movies or surfing the Internet, and two to three times improvement in standby battery life. For some systems coming to market this year, over nine hours of active use battery life or 10-13 days of standby with fresh data on a single charge is expected.
To achieve this breakthrough, Intel significantly reduced the CPU power to as low as 6W and also worked across the system for power optimization. These improvements range from system-on-a-chip (SoC) and platform level technologies to Intel's 22nm process technology.
