New Intel vPro processors to maximize worker productivity
The vPro platform is Intel's next foundation for business computing
New 8th Gen Intel Core vPro processors deliver better performance, long battery life, fast Wi-Fi 6 and built in security features with Intel Hardware Shield.
The workplace as we know it is evolving and it's more mobile than ever. With a lot of productivity moving to cloud platforms, IT managers face critical decisions to ensure their organizations IT health. . Add to that their need to manage a heterogeneous device environment, there are many issues to potentially hinder end-user productivity.
To help deal with these challenges, Intel is driving PC platforms built for business. These help deliver the connectivity, built-in security features and performance even when unplugged that mobile workers require. To that end, Intel are announcing new 8th Gen Intel Core vPro mobile processors based on Intel's Whiskey Lake architecture.
Intel vPro clients configured with Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) solutions will be some of the first available in the marketplace to enable faster Wi-Fi 6 connections. This allows people to not only work from anywhere, but work with mobile applications like video conferencing, real-time collaboration, and content sharing.
With this launch, Intel brings its new Intel Hardware Shield technology, which delivers out of the box protection to help defend against firmware attacks. Intel Hardware Shield helps ensure the OS runs on legitimate hardware and provides hardware to software security visibility, enabling the OS to enforce a more complete security policy. Importantly, no additional IT infrastructure is required.
Now with the availability of 8th Gen Intel Core vPro mobile devices for businesses, the latest 8th Gen Intel Core vPro i7-8665U processor delivers up to 65 percent faster overall performance and up to 11 hours of battery life. Employees will now be able to go cordless for that duration.
Intel's new Optane memory H10 with solid-state storage enables two times faster launch of documents, spreadsheets and presentations while transferring large files - and that's compared to the same system with a traditional SSD alone.
Intel will be working with OEMs like Dell, HP, Lenovo, Panasonic and other partners to bring new corporate designs to market. PCs built on the 8th Gen Intel Core vPro mobile processors will be rolling out over the next several months.
