There are over 500 million computers in use today that are four to five years old or older. They are slow to wake, their batteries dont last long, and they cant take advantage of all the new experiences available today. Built on the new Skylake microarchitecture on Intels leading 14nm manufacturing process technology, 6th Gen Intel Core processors deliver up to two and a half times better performance3, triple the battery life4, and graphics that are 30 times better5 for seamless and smooth gaming and video experiences versus the average 5-year-old computer. They can also be half as thin and half the weight, have faster wake up time, and battery life that lasts virtually all day6.
6th Gen Intel Core processors deliver some of the most significant advancements in computing that weve ever seen, said Kirk Skaugen, Intel senior vice president and general manager of the Client Computing Group. New 6th Gen Intel Core-based systems are more responsive than ever with enhanced performance, battery life and security. And they can enable amazing new PC experiences like logging into your computer with your face and having a personal assistant respond to your voice. The combination of 6th Gen Intel Core processors, Windows 10 and beautiful new systems from PC manufacturers make this the best time ever to buy a new computer.
6th Gen Intel Core Powers Range of New Devices
The new 6th Gen Intel Core processor family enables a broad range of designs to fit virtually every need. Intel® Core M processors, which can offer twice the performance of leading premium tablets7, will now include brand levels Intel Core m3, m5 and m7 processors to provide people with more clarity and choice in finding the Intel Core M processor-based device that best meets their specific needs. The Intel® Compute Stick lineup expands to include a version powered by the 6th Gen Intel Core M processor.
This new generation of Intel processors also includes several firsts for mobile designs: a mobile K SKU that is unlocked to enable overclocking with even more user control, a new quad-core Intel® Core i5 processor that offers up to 60 percent improved mobile multitasking8, and the Intel® Xeon® E3 processor family now powering mobile workstations. The 6th Gen Intel Core processors deliver significant improvements in graphics performance9 to offer stunning visuals for gaming as well as compelling 4K content creation and media playback. New Intel® Speed Shift technology improves the responsiveness of mobile systems so people can, for example, apply a photo filter up to 45 percent faster10.
In addition, the 6th Gen Intel Core and Intel Xeon platforms will offer
a variety of new features and experiences. More devices will feature
3 for USB Type-C, enabling one compact port that does it all. A
user-facing or world-facing
RealSense Camera will be available on a range of new 6th
Gen Intel Core processor-based 2 in 1s, notebooks and All-in-One desktop
systems, offering new depth-sensing capabilities and immersive
experiences that allow people to do things like take and share lifelike
3-D selfies, scan objects and print in 3-D, and easily remove and change
