This is the largest generation-over-generation gain in the company's history, equating to over 9 hours of battery life in active workloads1 for some Ultrabooks based on the new processors.

 

Intel's newest Core processors are the first SoCs for PCs with stunning performance, and power a variety of innovative devices, including Ultrabook, 2-in-1 and portable all-in-one designs. Systems based on the quad-core version of the new Core processors are available now, with additional versions available in the coming months.

 

The 4th generation Intel Core processors also have built-in graphics that deliver discrete-level performance, or up to 2 times the performance of Intel's prior generation2. Offered on select versions of the new Intel Core processors, Intel® Iris™ graphics bring the Ultrabook and other mobile PCs to life with built-in, eye-popping visual experiences.

 

Select Ultrabooks powered by 4th generation Intel Core processors will deliver the Intel performance people expect combined with the mobility and responsiveness of a tablet, making them the premium, ultra-versatile 2-in-1 devices. With touch capability and a keyboard, the system adapts to the user and also offers full application compatibility. People can lean forward to work and lean back to relax using just one device.

 

Kilroy also showcased progress in bringing human-like senses to 2-in-1 and other Intel-based devices through the addition of touch, voice and facial recognition and other technologies. Called perceptual computing, these technologies take advantage of Intel processing power to make interaction with devices natural, intuitive and immersive.

 

He demonstrated immersive, short-range gesture and voice-based interaction by giving new Intel Core-based Ultrabook 2-in-1 devices "eyes" with the Creative Senz3D* peripheral camera, noting general availability for the camera starting next quarter. Looking to the future, he said Intel is working on an integrated solution to build 3-D depth camera technology directly into future Intel-based devices targeted for the second half of 2014.

 

Accelerating Fast: Tablets, Smartphones and LTE

Intel's 22nm low-power, high-performance Silvermont microarchitecture is enabling the company to accelerate and significantly enhance its tablet and smartphone offerings.

 

For tablets on shelves for holiday 2013, Intel's next-generation, 22nm quad-core Atom SoC ("Bay Trail-T") will deliver superior graphics and more than two times the CPU performance of the current generation. It will also enable sleek designs with 8 or more hours3 of battery life and weeks of standby, as well as support Android* and Windows 8.1*.

 

For the first time, Kilroy demonstrated Intel's 4G LTE multimode solution in conjunction with the next-generation 22nm quad-core Atom SoC for tablets. The Intel® XMM 7160 is one of the world's smallest4and lowest-power multimode-multiband LTE solutions and will support global LTE roaming in a single SKU.

 

With a number of phones with Intel silicon inside having shipped across more than 30 countries, Kilroy previewed what's coming. He showed for the first time a smartphone reference design platform based on "Merrifield," Intel's next-generation 22nm Intel Atom SoC for smartphones that will deliver increased performance and battery life. The platform includes an integrated sensor hub for personalized services, as well as capabilities for data, device and privacy protection.

BEIJING and SANTA CLARA, CA – June 3, 2013 - In a series of events over the past week,  Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) and Intel Corporation announced availability in several markets of the Lenovo K900 Smartphone, the world's first smartphone based on the latest Intel® Atom™ Z2580 processor. With this week's addition of Thailand and Malaysia to markets already selling the K900, Lenovo has now upped the number of countries receiving the new smartphone to eight with more to be announced this summer.

 

Already the world's third-largest producer of "smart connected devices"1, Lenovo expects the K900 will appeal to customers around the world looking for sleek design, high quality and the latest innovations in smartphone technology. The device offers a large display, high-end camera and other features popular with customers in key, emerging markets in Asia. The K900 also distinguishes itself with a unique, eye-catching design and Intel's powerful, cutting-edge mobile processor.

 

By year end, Lenovo plans to offer the K900 smartphone in 10 new markets in addition to the current set, which includes China, India, Indonesia, Russia, the Philippines and Vietnam. The company has tapped global NBA superstar Kobe Bryant to help promote the device in China and Southeast Asia, while designing a worldwide marketing campaign to promote the phone in other markets. Lenovo aims to use its experience in Asia as a springboard for its global smartphone ambitions.

 

"Many of the world's fastest-growing smartphone markets are in Asia," said JD Howard, vice president, Mobile Internet Digital Home business operations and business development. "Lenovo has built a strong smartphone base in China, and last year we began offering our smartphones in additional markets. The Lenovo K900 is a world-class smartphone, which will compete well around the world. Intel has been an ideal partner for developing the K900 and ensuring an outstanding user experience for our customers."

 

The new Intel® Atom™ processor platform ("Clover Trail+") brings Intel's classic product strengths, including high performance that lets users enjoy smooth Web browsing, vibrant, glitch-free, full HD movies, and an Android* applications experience that launches fast and runs great. The product's 2GHz dual core Intel Atom processing also features Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology, supporting four simultaneous application threads and further enhancing the overall efficiency of the Intel Atom cores and platform.

 

"The K900 embodies the value propositions of high-performance Intel® architecture and great battery life with Lenovo's product and design innovation," said Hermann Eul, Intel vice president and general manager of the Mobile and Communications Group. "We look forward to our continued partnership with Lenovo across a range of mobile market segments, and to working closely with them to bring the K900 smartphone experience with Intel Inside® to more consumers around the world."

 

K900 – Product Information

As smartphones have become ubiquitous, customer demands for "top-of-the-line" devices have increased, with design and usability growing in importance. The K900 resets the bar on these aspects. At 6.9mm, the K900 is the thinnest phone in its class by a wide margin and weighs a mere 162g, making it a device that unobtrusively slips into a jacket pocket or handbag. Made from a composite of stainless steel alloy and polycarbonate in a Unibody mold, the K900 manages to stay strong and look sharp while maintaining its slim profile.

 

While the K900 is certainly sleek, it does not ignore the emerging trend toward larger and clearer displays on smartphones. The K900 is one of the first smartphones in the world to combine a 5.5" IPS display with 1080p full high-definition resolution performance at 400+ pixels-per-inch, all under the latest, touch-capacitive Gorilla Glass 2. This gives the K900 supreme clarity and crispness along with plenty of space to capture the nuances of high-definition photos and video, as well as for viewing standard-size Web pages.

 

Lenovo K900 runs on the Intel® Atom™ Z2580 processor, a dual core chip, which runs up to 2.0 GHz and utilizes Intel® Hyper-Threading technology to boost performance efficiency. The Intel-powered device also features an Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator engine running a PowerVR SGX 544MP2 GPU, which triples graphics performance over the previous generation.3 This makes the Lenovo K900 very responsive, especially for key functions such as web-browsing, multi-tasking and application-switching.

 

The K900's camera stands out as one of the smartphone's most distinguished features. As with other functions on the K900, Lenovo has overhauled the camera completely, and delivered a package that is truly greater than the sum of its parts. Megapixels is the first specification that many users recognize for digital cameras, and with 13MP, the K900 ranks at the top of its class in this aspect and combines this with an industry-leading, Sony* Exmor BSI sensor for what would already be considered outstanding performance.

 

With the K900 though, the team has gone even further. Recognizing that customers often need to take clear, flash-less photos in low-light, Lenovo has equipped the K900 with a large aperture f1.8 lens, making it the first smartphone to offer such a wide aperture on its camera. Combined with its other specifications, the K900 is now a legitimate stand-in for a digital camera in a smartphone. In addition to these improvements to the rear camera, the front camera has also been widened to an 88-degree viewing angle, the widest available on a smartphone front camera for convenient self-photos and video calls.

 

The Lenovo K900 smartphone is available now or very shortly in China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Russia, Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam. Additional markets will be announced in the near future. Retail price for the K900 varies by market2.

This weekend at over 83 U.S. Cities, the National Day of Civic Hacking initiative will bring citizens together with government and private organizations with the common goal of improving their community through the unique application of data. The world has been madly digitizing everything from music and books to business transactions and scientific data, but we are only just beginning to understand data’s potential when put in the hands of individuals. Intel Labs is sponsoring events like this to engage and empower people to explore novel applications of their digital information. Get the fact sheet.

Events in 83 Cities will Mark National Day of Civic Hacking by Using Publicly Available Data and Entrepreneurial Thinking to Spur Innovation

 

Washington, D.C. – May 31, 2013 – This weekend, more than 6,000 individuals representing businesses, nonprofits, government agencies and local citizens will team up to participate in 96 events throughout the United States as part of the National Day of Civic Hacking. The effort's goal is to make people's lives better by working together to solve social challenges facing local communities.

 

A civic hacker is someone who uses a minimum amount of resources and a maximum amount of brainpower and ingenuity to solve a problem. Participating civic hackers will develop new solutions to old challenges – from an app that allows rural communities to track private water wells and prevent water supply contamination to developing platforms that expand access to energy consumption data.

 

Intel Corporation, as a headlining sponsor of National Day of Civic Hacking, is paving the way for how individuals can benefit from increased access to data and information. On June 1 and 2, in cities across the country, civic hackers, government and businesses are stepping up to the challenge of how to use technology to improve the quality of life in their communities.

 

"The world has been madly digitizing everything from music and books to business transactions and scientific data," said Dr. Genevieve Bell, Intel Labs Director, Interaction & Experience Research. "There is a gold mine of insight and wisdom that lies within all our digital information, but we have only begun to understand its potential when put in the hands of citizens. The National Day of Civic Hacking is critical to educating and engaging citizens in this emerging 'data society' so people can start to explore how to harness the power of digital information and share it with others to unleash new, unexpected and serendipitous opportunities."

 

Many of the weekend's challenges will incorporate an unprecedented amount of shared data from over 22 federal agencies including the White House Office of Digital Strategy, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, NASA, the Department of Labor, the Census Bureau, the National Science Foundation, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Peace Corps, USAID and dozens of local and state governments across the country. Civic hackers will relay this data to the general public through tools, apps and platforms that aim to make people's lives better.

 

"Imagine all the good that can be done by developers and other innovators with the growing troves of data the federal government has been making available – data on everything from hospital pricing to drinking water safety to natural disasters and much more," said Todd Park, Assistant to President Obama and U.S. Chief Technology Officer. "Americans paid for these data resources and deserve easy access to them, and we applaud the many innovators who are leveraging this information to create apps and services that help address key challenges, improve lives, and grow the economy."

 

The National Day of Civic Hacking is the largest convening of civic hackers to ever assemble and is part of a growing grassroots trend. Increasingly, savvy individuals are using their talents to tackle problems they encounter in their daily lives and see within their communities. Those responsible for driving this recent trend are not only tech professionals from Silicon Valley; they are also everyday citizens from communities across the United States who use a minimum amount of resources to create or enhance open source solutions.

 

As part of National Day of Civic Hacking, the foundation founded by pop icon will.i.am is hosting an event focused on engaging young people in civic hacking in Los Angeles. "Everything we can do to engage local communities, especially our young people, in technology and innovation helps us to create a stronger LA and a stronger America. I'm proud to support this amazing event in Boyle Heights, and I can't wait to see the apps and ideas that come out of it," said will.i.am.

 

National Day of Civic Hacking is being led by SecondMuse with organizing support from partners including: Code for America, Innovation Endeavors and Random Hacks of Kindness. The sponsors of this initiative include Intel, Edelman, CodeForGood, Rally Software, Elance and Socrata.
