New Delhi: World`s leading chip manufacturer Intel Thursday launched second generation intel core processors with built-in visual capabilities to deliver superior audio-visual experience, faster downloading ability and improved battery life.
"The built-in visual capabilities enabled by these new processors are stunning. This combined with improved adaptive performance, will revolutionize the PC experience in a way that is obvious for every user to see and appreciate, a visibly smarter performance," said R. Sivakumar, managing director sales and marketing group, Intel South Asia.
"The new features are bound to appeal to your senses and give you a better looking PC experience," he added.
Intel estimates that a 4-minute HD video that used to take 4 minutes to convert to play on an iPod would now take just 16 seconds.
The new processor technology focusses on high-definition videos, mainstream gaming, online socialising and multimedia and combines visual and 3D graphics technology with performance-leading microprocessors on a single chip.Its new features include Intel Quick Sync Video, and a new version of the company`s award-winning Intel Wireless Display which now adds 1080p HD (high definition) and content protection for those wishing to beam premium HD content from their laptop screen to their TV.
More than 500 laptops and desktops designs based on these products are expected from all major computer makers worldwide. In India, systems are likely to be available from OEMs (original equipment manufacturer) like HCL, Wipro, HP, Lenevo, Toshiba and Dell among others as well as from local channel partners.
The company said that the price range of the products incorporated with the second generation intel core processors will increase marginally.
