Intel debuts 5th generation Core vPro processors

Intel has announced that the fifth generation of its Core vPro processors is now out and available for purchase. The new chips offer a ton of new features for the rapidly shifting workplace such as wireless innovations, built-in security, improved manageability, faster performance and more.

The new chips are designed for use in ultrabooks, ultra thin clamshells and mini PCs and offer twice the battery life and more than twice the performance when compared to the previous generation. The new features also allow the chips to be used in devices with form factors that are up to three times thinner and 50 per cent lighter than a laptop PC from just four years ago.

“Our goal is to enable all users to simply work better by offsetting the growing challenges of today’s businesses,” said Tom Garrison, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Business Client Platforms. “With new devices based on 5th generation Intel Core vPro processors, we aim to transform the user experience by helping them compute from virtually anywhere without the clutter and burden of wires.”

The 5th generation Core vPro processors bring Intel Pro Wireless Display to the table – this is a technology that makes every presentation and conference room a cable-free zone. The technology also supports wireless channel management for less network congestion and fewer security vulnerabilities and more. On the other hand Intel Wireless Docking allows users to be connected and ready for work the moment they sit at their desks. This secure and manageable, wire-free technology based on Intel Wireless Gigabit technology enables systems to automatically dock to monitors, keyboards, mice and USB accessories and eliminates the need for traditional mechanical docks.

The new chips also provide hardware-enhanced security and manageability capabilities and Intel Identity Protection simplifies authentication and helps ensure the right people have access to the right information at the right time. Moreover Intel Active Management Technology makes it possible to remotely manage wired and wireless networks across all devices even if the operating system is down or the device is powered off.

The new 5th generation Intel Core vPro processors are now available in various portable devices from 12 leading PC makers with more manufacturers joining the list in the next few weeks.
