Intel has now made available the 5th generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor family that provides cutting-edge features to enable a new and rapidly shifting workplace. The Intel Core vPro processors offer wireless innovations, built-in security, faster performance and improved manageability that will allow workers and companies to improve their productivity and stay competitive.
Through this technology, Intel addresses three specific areas to enable a better way to work and provide a better experience for users and companies: PC design innovation, wireless display and wireless docking.
“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.”
Businesses can choose from a variety of never-before-seen PC designs across 2 in 1s, Ultrabooks, ultrathin clamshells and mini PCs that offer up to twice the battery life1 and more than twice the performance1, enabling form factors that are up to three times thinner2 and 50 percent lighter2 than a laptop PC from just four years ago.
Intel® Pro Wireless Display (Intel® Pro WiDi) makes every presentation and conference room a cable-free zone as well as supporting key IT requirements such as wireless channel management to mitigate network congestion risk and security vulnerabilities, and the ability to efficiently update and manage adapters remotely.3
Intel® Wireless Docking allows users to be connected and ready to work the moment they walk up to their desk. 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.3
New 2 in 1s, Ultrabooks, ultrathin clamshells and mini PCs based on 5th generation Intel Core vPro processors are available now from 12 leading PC manufacturers with more expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
The 5th generation Intel Core vPro processors also provide hardware-enhanced security and manageability capabilities. When paired with the Intel® Solid-State Drive Pro 2500 Series, IT departments can implement built-in data encryption capabilities. Intel® Identity Protection helps to simplify authentication and helps ensure the right people have access to the right information at the right time.3
As workplace needs become increasingly mobile, it’s even more critical for IT to be able to keep devices healthy and protected while not impacting user productivity. Remote management over wired and wireless networks and across all device types is made possible with Intel® Active Management Technology, even if the operating system is down or the device is powered off.3
