Intel unveils new Core vPro processor family

Based on Nehalem microarchitecture and manufactured on 32nm process

By CBR Staff Writer

Intel has unveiled 2010 Intel Core vPro processor family, which it claims to meet the needs of businesses for PCs with flexible performance, theft prevention and cost savings in a changing business computing environment.

The company said that the new platform based on the 2010 Intel Core vPro processor family includes the new Intel Q57 Express chipset and Intel 82577LM Gigabit Network Connection for notebooks and Intel 82578DM Network Connection for desktop PCs.

The new family processors are based on the company’s Nehalem microarchitecture and manufactured on its new 32-nanometer process. Intel said that it has integrated high-definition graphics in its processors and incorporated second-generation high-k metal gate transistors that help increase computing speed and battery life.

According to Intel, the 2010 Intel Core i7 processors and Core i5 processors feature Intel turbo boost technology and hyper-threading technology for adaptive, smarter computing. Intel turbo boost technology automatically adjusts the speed of the processor when it senses a workload change, while hyper-threading technology interconnects multiple processor cores with multiple threads that enable faster processing of instructions in parallel.

The key features of Core vPro is keyboard-video-mouse remote control and remote encryption management, which enables distant IT personnel to manage PCs with encrypted hard drives by securely unlocking those drives, making all of the Intel vPro technology capabilities available. The platform also includes anti-theft technology that locks access to a PC through central server or built-in intellilgence.

Intel launched a workstation platform based on the new Intel Core i5 processor and the Intel 3450 chipset. The platform is aimed at SMB and takes advantage of new HD graphics and has been certified on applications from ADOBE, Autodesk and others.

In addition, the company also unveiled the Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 and Centrino Advanced-N 6200 802.11n WLAN adapters, which offer 802.11n multi-stream capabilities, dual-band support, coverage and speeds. It also introduced the Intel Centrino Advanced-N + WiMAX 6250 adapter that offers up to 20Mbps WiMAX and 802.11abgn WiFi for maximum versatile coverage. All three adapters support Intel vPro Technology.
