The tranquil backwaters of Alappuzha have long been advertised as the perfect setting for contemplation or to lazily watch the exquisite designs of houseboats that glide past. Reflecting about intercontinental ballistic missiles has never been part of tourism brochures. But in Kerala, where women outnumber men, matriarchy rules in some parts, and a girl child is as precious as her male counterpart, there is always a surprise lurking round those coconut palms.
Intel has unveiled the quad-core third generation Intel Core processor family. It brings visual and performance computing gains for gamers, media enthusiasts and mainstream users.
The new processors are the first chips in the world that is made using Intel's 22-nanometer (nm) 3-D tri-gate transistor technology and it is now available in powerful, high end desktop, laptop and sleek all in one designs.
With the combination of Intel's 3-D tri-gate transistor technology and architectural enhancements, it is now possible to double up the 3-D graphics and HD media processing performance. Because of the built-in visual performance, creating and editing videos and photos, surfing the web, watching HD movies and playing mainstream games is now quicker, crisper and livelier.
The new processors seem to be promising when it comes to extending Intel's overall performance leadership. It has as much as 20 percent microprocessor performance improvements and new technologies to speed up the flow of data to and from the chips.
"The 3rd generation Intel Core processors were created from the ground up to generate exciting new experiences. Our engineers have exceeded our expectations by doubling the performance of media and graphics versus the best processors we’ve built until today, which means incredible new visual experiences are here for new all-in-one PCs and upcoming Ultrabook devices. What makes all this possible is the combination of Intel’s leading manufacturing and processor architecture, and our unwavering commitment to drive computing innovations forward,'' said Kirk Skaugen, Intel VP and GM of the PC Client Group.
Intel will be soon launching additional versions of the third generation Intel Core processors, which will power ultrabooks devices, servers and intelligent systems in retail, healthcare and other industries.
