New Delhi, June 6, 2012 – The next wave of ultra thin Ultrabook portable PCs , powered by thr 3rd generation of Intel Core processors, fabricated with 22nm technology, is lapping Indian shores. The design promises increased media and graphics performance and long battery life.
Lenovo launched its products fuelled by this chip, the same day.
“This is a time of revolutionary change in personal computing, as Intel and the industry aim to raise the bar for personal computing experiences, evolving to more natural and intuitive interactions,” says Debjani Ghosh, Managing Director, Sales & Marketing Group, Intel South Asia, “ Personal computing as we know it today will suddenly seem old fashioned.”
Ultrabook devices wake in a flash -- the system will transition from deep sleep (S4 mode) to its active state in less than 7 seconds. Additionally, all Ultrabook devices are now required to be “responsive while active” which means that they will load and run users’ favorite apps quickly New in the 3rd gen core chips is USB 3.0 – and Thunderbolt technology, a high-speed connection that allows faster transfers. For example, a full-length HD movie can be transferred to an Ultrabook in less than 30 seconds.The next wave of Ultrabook systems is also equipped with Intel Anti-Theft technology that lets people automatically disable the system if it is lost or stolen. Additionally, all 3rd Generation Intel Core processor-based Ultrabook devices have Intel Identity Protection technology built in to help keep users’ identities safe . With this technology, a payments processor, a bank, an online merchant, a social media site or a gaming site can establish a trusted relationship with the Ultrabook user and reduce the chance that imposters are using their identities on enabled websites and social networks. The new Ultrabooks have up to twice the video processing and 3-D graphics performance of the prior generation, cutting a user’s video processing time in half and making for a smoother, richer visual experience.
