Introducing 8th Gen Intel Core vPro processors
Intel today, announced new 8th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro mobile processors2, based on Intel’s Whiskey Lake architecture.
Intel is helping to usher in a new era of WLAN connectivity for workers on the go. 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 63 connections. This allows people to not only work from anywhere, but enjoy a premium experience – with best-in-class performance for the most demanding 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 your 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, there is no trade-off of performance even when unplugged. Compared to a 3-year-old PC, the latest 8th Gen Intel Core vPro i7-8665U processor delivers up to 65% faster overall performance4 and up to 11 hours5 of battery life. These advancements allow employees to leave the charger behind and stay productive throughout their work day.
New Intel® Optane™ memory H10 with solid-state storage enables two times faster6 launch of documents, spreadsheets and presentations while transferring large files – and that’s compared to the same system with a traditional SSD alone. This minimizes the frustration of waiting for apps to load while multitasking. Intel Optane memory H10 delivers the responsiveness to work efficiently and spend less time waiting.
