Today Intel introduced the 6th Gen Intel® Core™ processor family, our best processors ever. 6th Gen Intel Core sets a new standard of computing with up to two and a half times the performance, triple the battery life and even better graphics than any previous processor. 6th Gen Intel Core processors have been optimized to best run Windows 10, enabling new PC experiences and removing common pain points while providing an incredibly secure computing experience. Find out why Kirk Skaugen, Intel senior vice president and general manager of the Client Computing Group, thinks there has never been a better time to buy a new PC.

It’s never been a more exciting time to buy a new PC! Intel recently announced its 5th Gen Intel® Core™ processors that offer great PC and graphics performance, enable even longer battery life, and will power more natural and immersive experiences driven by capabilities like Intel® RealSense™ 3D camera, Voice Assistant, TrueKey, Intel® Wireless Docking (WiGig) and Intel® Wireless Display. Microsoft announced yesterday that customers can upgrade for free to Windows 10 for up to a year after Windows 10 is released, so there is no need to wait.

The new movie “How to Train Your Dragon 2” is the first that was developed using a new animation platform created by DreamWorks Animation*.Intel worked extensively with DreamWorks on two elements of that platform, PrEMO and Torch. The two tools are built-from-the-ground-up animation and lighting applications that give animators instantaneous feedback on changes made to a scene. These tools were built to ensure all aspects of the hardware and software were optimized to take advantage of the power of each core in Intel’s processors. Want to learn more? Check out the details.

The tablet revolution continues. People have more choices than ever when it comes to tablets that address specific needs. LAPTOP Magazine pulled together a list of the top 10 tablets presently on the market, and Intel processors power half of them.

Intel today provided more details on the company’s efforts to accelerate support of the Chrome* and Android* operating systems. There will be more than 80 Intel tablets running Android and 20 Chrome OS designs in market or coming later this year. Intel has been an industry leader in 64-bit - its latest Intel® Atom™ processors are all 64-bit enabled and ready to support the a 64-bit Android as soon as it becomes available. Intel is also working to make Android and Chrome OS application development easier by providing a number of tools and resources that ease the development process.  At Google I/O yesterday, Google announced Android TV, an exciting new interactive home entertainment platform that Intel is supporting Google in bringing to market.  Intel will also fully support Google’s additional security features in the Android L release.

At Mobile World Congress 2014, AirWatch and Citrix became the latest companies to support Intel® Device Protection Technology (Intel® DPT). Intel DPT includes both security and manageability extensions for Android. The security extensions are implemented at the kernel level to allow trusted security solutions to help secure devices and proactively block malware delivered through malicious applications and websites. The manageability extensions provide IT increased levels of control because it separates personal information from corporate data, helping protect against data leakage while safeguarding personal content on the device.

At IDF in September 2013, Intel announced it was working with key partners to bring 64-bit enterprise tablets to market. Last night at Mobile World Congress, HP introduced the first 64-bit Intel® Atom™ processor-based tablets, the HP ElitePad 1000 and the HP ProPad 600. Based on the 22nm Intel Atom processor Z3000 series, the 64-bit capability in these two new Windows* tablets allows IT departments to deliver enterprise-class applications and security across Windows PCs and tablets – speeding deployment and reducing total cost of ownership. The HP ElitePad is expected to be available in March for a starting price of $739. The HP ProPad is expected to be available in April. Pricing will be set closer to availability.

Laptop Magazine named the new 64-bit Intel® Atom™ Processor Z3000 Series SoC (code named Bay Trail) its 2013 Game Changer Award Winner. As the publication wrote, “Made with the same 22-nanometer manufacturing process as Intel’s 4th generation Core series, Bay Trail processors offer plenty of power for real productivity, media playback and casual gaming. Yet because of their low-power design — and Intel’s aggressive pricing — quad-core Bay Trail CPUs appear in a new-generation of budget-minded Windows tablets.” Several tablets based on this award winning design are available this holiday season. Check them out here.
