Business PCs Arrive with New Intel® Core™ vPro™ Processor Family

Intel Also Unveils Other Products and Services for Businesses of All Sizes

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 4, 2010Intel Corporation:


  • Business PCs based on 2010 Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors with Intel® Turbo Boost meet growing office performance demands, include enhanced security, management features.
  • 2010 Intel® Core™ i5 vPro™ processor can run business productivity applications up to 80 percent faster, multiple applications twice as fast, and encrypted material three times quicker.
  • New Intel® Core™ vPro™ technology features integrated “keyboard-video-mouse,” Remote Encryption Management, new data and asset theft deterrents.
  • New notebook technology for system builders, entry-level workstation for the channel, wireless adapters perform up to speed

Intel Corporation today unveiled its 2010 Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor family to meet the needs of businesses of all sizes for PCs with greater, more flexible performance, theft prevention and cost savings in a rapidly changing business computing environment. These and several other capabilities are at the heart of many new Intel-based business laptop and desktop computers beginning to roll out from computer manufacturers worldwide.

The Intel Core vPro processors arrive as business computing evolves with the emergence of video, Internet telephony, social networking and other heavyweight applications – in many cases running at the same time – making a computer’s performance an even bigger priority.

“Businesses, particularly those that haven’t purchased PCs for several years, face a computing environment that no longer handles the applications many workers and IT are adopting,” said Rick Echevarria, vice president, Intel Architecture Group, and general manager, Business Client Platform Division. “The integration of intelligent performance along with smart security and cost-saving manageability features in the Intel Core vPro processor family provide IT and SMBs a no-compromise platform. We also are excited about how Intel vPro Technology gives IT the flexibility to look at client virtualization, consumerization and rich cloud applications.”

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

Computer manufacturers worldwide, including Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo and Toshiba, are rolling out business PCs based on the 2010 Intel Core vPro processor family. In addition, developers of software solutions for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and enterprises such as Bomgar, Kaseya, LANDesk, Level Platforms, LogMeIn, Microsoft, RealVNC, Spiceworks, Symantec and WinZip will support the new features in their upcoming products. IT service providers, including AT&T Tech Support 360* and PlumChoice, plan to adopt Intel Core vPro Technology capabilities into their SMB offerings.

Thinking Fast

The processors are based on Intel’s award-winning “Nehalem” microarchitecture and manufactured on Intel’s groundbreaking new 32-nanometer process. Intel has integrated high-definition graphics in its processors for the first time, and incorporated Intel’s second-generation high-k metal gate transistors that help increase computing speed and battery life.

The 2010 Intel® Core™ i7 processors and Core™ i5 processors feature Intel® Turbo Boost Technology and Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology for adaptive, “smarter” computing. Intel® Turbo Boost Technology automatically adjusts the speed of the processor when it senses a workload change – faster when the user, for example, is multitasking or watching a video, and slower, more energy-efficiently when the worker goes for coffee and only background applications are running.

Contributing to the industry-leading speed and energy efficiency of the processors, Intel Hyper-Threading Technology interconnects multiple processor cores with multiple “threads” that enable faster processing of instructions in parallel.

Using standard benchmarks, a notebook with the 2010 Intel Core i5 vPro processor can run business productivity applications up to 80 percent faster1, multiple applications up to twice as fast1, and protect confidential data up to 3.5 times quicker1 compared to a 3-year-old mainstream notebook.

Outsmarting Evil Doers

Intel® Anti-Theft Technology, available with Intel vPro Technology frustrates thieves by locking access to a PC if a central server or built-in intelligence concludes it is lost or stolen. New Intel Anti-Theft Technology version 2.0 (Intel® AT 2.0) enables encryption solutions to disable access to cryptographic keys through hardware to completely block access to data, and also makes it simpler to reactivate a PC once in rightful hands. Also, a custom message can be displayed in a pre-OS screen of the disabled PC for anyone who tries to access the computer. Many computer makers plan to support Intel AT 2.0, such as Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo and Panasonic, and such security companies as Absolute Software, PGP, Phoenix and WinMagic.
