Intel Corp unveiled its fourth generation processors in Taipei today in a bid to give personal computers a new lease of life amid stiff competition from smartphones and tablets.
The US chip giant said the new processors — introduced at Computex,Asia’s biggest IT trade fair — have been designed for its thin ‘ultrabook’ laptops to combine the performance of a PC with the mobility of a tablet.
“It’s (the ultrabook) a tablet when you want it,and a notebook when you need it,” said Kirk Skaugen,senior vice president and general manager of Intel’s PC client group.
The “two-in-one” ultrabooks using the new processors will allow a 50 per cent rise in battery life and also offer faster data encryption when compared to the third generation chips,he said.
“This is the largest generation-over-generation gain in the company’s history,equating to over nine hours of battery life for some ultrabooks based on the new processors,” Skaugen said.
