Intel Corporation has introduced the quad-core third-generation Intel Core processor family. The new processors are the first chips in the world made using Intel’s 22-nanometer (nm) 3-D tri-Gate transistor technology.
The combination of Intel’s cutting-edge 3-D tri-gate transistor technology and architectural enhancements doubles the 3-D graphics and HD media processing performance compared with Intel’s previous generation of chips. In the coming months, additional versions of the third- generation Intel Core processors will be available to power a new wave of systems ranging from Ultrabook devices.
Kirk Skaugen, Vice-President & General Manager, PC Client Group, Intel, said, “The third- generation Intel Core processors were created from the ground up to generate exciting new experiences. Our engineers have exceeded our expectations by doubling the performance of media and graphics versus the best processors we have built until today, which means incredible new visual experiences are here for new all-in-one PCs and upcoming Ultrabook devices. What makes all this possible is the combination of Intel’s leading manufacturing and processor architecture, and our unwavering commitment to drive computing innovations forward.”
