KUALA LUMPUR, 4 APRIL 2011 - The 2nd generation Intel Core processor family offer game-changing features that include visually stunning experience and lifestyle, said the technology firm Intel Malaysia.

During a recent five-day consumer launch in MidValley Megamall, Intel Malaysia country manager of sales & marketing Prakash Mallya said the new family of processors included new features that were surprising. "New features include Intel Quick Sync Video, and a new version of the company's award-winning Intel Wireless Display (WiDi), which now adds 1080p HD and content protection for those wishing to beam premium HD content from their laptop screen to their TV."

Mallya said that the new processor graphics technology would help in enhancing high-definition (HD) video, photos, mainstream gaming, multi-tasking and online socialising and multimedia.

He added that Intel Malaysia staff played a prominent role in the development of the processors. "Specifically, the Penang Assembly Test site was involved in the early development and high volume operations for the desktop version of the 2nd Generation Intel Core processors. The Kulim Microprocessor and Chipset Operation site meanwhile was instrumental in the high volume operations for the mobile version of the new processor family. About 200 engineers were involved in the development work and an estimated 2,000 employees across both sites contributed in the high-volume operations."

"The new processors represent the biggest advance in computing performance and capabilities over any other previous generation," said Mallya. "The built-in visual capabilities enabled by these new processors are stunning. This, combined with improved adaptive performance, will revolutionise the PC experience in a way that is obvious for every user to see and appreciate - visibly smarter performance."

"The 2nd Generation Intel Core processor family is the first 'visibly smart' microarchitecture to combine visual and 3-D graphics technology with performance-leading microprocessors on a single chip," he said. "Incorporating the newly architected Intel HD Graphics on each 32nm die enables significant graphics performance improvements over previous-generation graphics for both HD media processing and mainstream gaming. The chips improve performance and yet still offer great battery life and the ability to design thinner, lighter and more innovative laptops and all-in-one PCs."
