Launched: 5th Gen Intel Core processors for mobile devices

 

Intel introduces Intel Atom and Core M processors to empower innovation in the country.

Intel Philippines showcased at the Makati Diamond Residences the latest mobile devices powered by the new 5th Generation Intel Core processors – smartphones, tablets, hybrids, fanless laptops. These allow users to take advantage of high end yet affordable devices suited to their needs.

Generational Improvements

Intel’s 5th Generation Core processors feature up to 22 percent better graphics processing, 50 percent faster video conversion, and up to 1.5 hours more battery life than equivalent 4th Generation Intel Core processors.

Filipinos are “well-connected”

According to Intel, reports by The World Bank and the World Economic Forum show that Filipinos are among the most active digital users in the region.

Intel Generations

The country has up to 40 million of the 115 million mobile device users connected to the Internet, ranging from Millenials who are starting to dominate the local workforce, to underprivileged communities who are starting to take advantage of affordable technological innovations.

International AND Local

Devices powered by the latest Intel Core processors include products from various international and local manufacturers – 2-in-1 hybrid tablets, all-in-ones, fanless ultrabooks, small form factor desktops, and others.

The Intel Next Level of Computing (NUC)

Tiny and customizable, the Intel NUC, comes in various configurations that can serve as home media hubs, thin clients, and desktop PCs.

Two highlights marked the evening of device showcases, product demos, and improvements in Intel’s processing muscle. One of them is the Intel Next Level of Computing (NUC), which features high performance and customizability of a traditional central processing unit (CPU) in a small form factor no larger than your palm. The size and affordability of the NUC ensures that everyone (from enthusiasts to academes) can harness the features of the 5th Gen Intel Core processors in a small box they can bring anywhere.

The Intel Compute Stick

The other highlight takes mobility into the realm of pocketability. The Intel Compute Stick is Intel’s solution to “screenification” by introducing a plug-and-play solution in the form of a mini PC only bigger than a USB thumb drive. It plugs straight into a computer screen or an HDTV through the HDMI port. The Intel Compute Stick, powered by a quad-core Intel Atom processor and equipped with a microSD card slot plus a full-sized USB port, can be pre-installed with Windows 8.1 or Linux. This ensure a wide variety of usages – palm-sized home theatre systems or a portable PC for off-site educational programs in hard-to-reach communities in the Philippines.

“The introduction of smaller but more powerful and affordable devices carrying the latest Intel Core processors allows us to provide solutions that help empower Filipino users and contribute to the continued development of the Philippine digital landscape,” said Calum Chisholm, Intel Philippines Country Manager.
