Intel a prezentat in cursul serii trecute noile procesoare Skylake care vor ajunge in calculatoare desktop, laptop-uri si ultrabook-uri in urmatoarele luni, informatiile oferite de catre compania americana fiind exact cele dezvaluite de catre diverse zvonuri in ultimele luni.
Procesoarele Intel Skylake sunt disponibile in 4 versiuni diferite: Y, U, H si S, insa doar cele Y ar urma sa fie folosite in MacBook Pro-uri, in timp ce modelele din seria U ar trebui sa ajunga in viitoarele versiuni ale MacBook Air-urilor pregatite de catre Apple.
Intel Skylake Y sunt cunoscute oficiale drept procesoare Core M care au fost regandite pentru a avea dimensiuni mai mici, dar cu mai multi tranzistori, ele fiind impartite in subcategorii pe diverse modele precum Core m3, Core m5 si Core m7.
Modelele sunt separate intre ele prin frecventa de lucru pentru procesor si placa grafica Intel HD 515, aceasta din urma vand frecvente de lucru ce incep de la 850 MHz si ajung pana la 1 GHz, procesoarele urmand a oferi pana la 10 ore de autonomie si performante cu 40% mai bune.
In ceea ce priveste seria U, Intel sustine ca aceste chip-uri sunt cu de pana la 10 ori mai rapide decat cele din generatia Broadwell, placile grafice oferind un spor de performanta de 34%, autonomia bateriei fiind de 1.4 ori mai buna decat cea a modelelor lansate anul trecut.
Intel 520 HD este placa grafica utilizata de catre aceste procesoare, ele fiind disponibile in modele i3, i5 si i7, MacBook Air-urile urmand a fi principalele produse Apple care le-ar putea utiliza, performantele fiind mai slabe decat cele ale seriei Y.
Impreuna cu toate aceste modificari Intel sustine ca procesoarele Skylake sunt capabile sa functioneze cu noi tipuri de porturi, mai exact Thunderbolt 3 si USB Type-C, iar daca aveti monitoare 4K, atunci aceste chip-uri pot sustine pana la 3 tipuri de astfel de monitoare.
Noile procesoare Intel Skylake vor fi disponibile pentru achizitie in urmatoarele luni.
Introducing 6th Generation Intel® Core™, Intel’s Best Processor Ever
- 6th Gen Intel® Core™ processors set a new standard with new, sleek designs that are thinner than ever, are capable of starting in about half a second1, and offer up to two and a half times the performance and triple the battery life2 when compared to the computers many people currently own.
- 6th Gen Intel Core processors have been optimized to best run Windows* 10, enabling new experiences, removing computing pain points and providing more secure computing.
- 6th Gen Intel Core processor family is the most scalable ever for consumers and businesses, enabling the broadest range of designs from the smallest Intel® Compute Stick and All-in-One desktops, to 2 in 1s, notebooks and the first-ever Intel® Xeon®processor for mobile workstations.
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 1, 2015 – Today Intel Corporation introduced the 6th Generation Intel® Core™ processor family, the company’s best processors ever. The launch marks a turning point in people’s relationship with computers. The 6th Gen Intel Core processors deliver enhanced performance and new immersive experiences at the lowest power levels ever and also support the broadest range of device designs – from the ultra-mobile compute stick, to 2 in 1s and huge high-definition All-in-One desktops, to new mobile workstations.
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 don’t last long, and they can’t take advantage of all the new experiences available today. Built on the new Skylake microarchitecture on Intel’s 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 we’ve 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 Thunderbolt™ 3 for USB Type-C, enabling one compact port that does it all. A user-facing or world-facing Intel® 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 their background during a video chat.
The 6th Gen Intel Core platform will also advance Intel’s “no wires” initiative to deliver the best experience for wireless display available today with Intel® WiDi or Pro WiDi. This technology allows people to easily share from their computer to a TV, monitor or projector without the mess of wires and dongles.
The 6th Gen Intel Core processor family helps optimize Windows* 10 features such as Cortana* and Windows Hello* for more seamless and natural interaction with technology. Devices with the Intel RealSense Camera paired with Windows Hello let people securely log in using facial recognition. True Key™ technology by Intel Security is also available on many 6th Gen Intel Core processor-based systems to deliver a secure experience for logging into devices and websites without the need to remember each site’s password.
Coming Soon: Intel® Iris™ Graphics, Intel® vPro™ for business, and products for IoT
In the coming months, Intel plans to deliver more than 48 processors in the 6th Gen Intel Core processor family, featuring Intel® Iris™ and Iris Pro graphics, as well as Intel Xeon E3-1500M processor family for mobile workstations and 6th Gen Intel® vPro™ processors for business and enterprises. A variety of devices across a wide range of form factors will be available now and over the coming months from manufacturers around the world. In addition, Intel is offering more than 25 products for the Internet of Things (IoT) with up to 7-year long-life supply and error correcting code (ECC) at multiple TDP levels. Retail, medical, industrial, and digital surveillance and security industries will all benefit from the new 6th Gen Intel Core processor improvements and includes IoT designs from the edge to the cloud.
