After recently unveiling the Ryzen Pro CPU range, it looks like AMD has some competition on its hands from Intel.
Intel has just introduced its new 10th generation Intel Core vPro processors designed to power business computing.
What Does The Intel vPro Processor Line Offer Businesses?
Intel’s new vPro chips deliver productivity improvements, better security features, connectivity, and remote manageability to aid an increasingly remote workforce. This will allow businesses and employees to stay securely connected with fewer interruptions.
Businesses using the new vPro processors will benefit from the best of the best when it comes to WiFi 6 technology, which will definitely come in handy during the era of video conferencing.
Matt MacPherson, Wireless CTO at Cisco provided more details in a press release:
“For more than a decade, Cisco and Intel have partnered to deliver an unrivaled wireless experience, helping to elevate Wi-Fi’s business relevance and impact. This close partnership provides early and extensive testing that ensures, as new industry standards and innovations emerge, Cisco and Intel customers can quickly and confidently embrace the latest technology.
“We’re excited for customers to experience the more reliable connections, faster downloads, and improved application performance of the new 10th Gen Intel Core vPro processors and Cisco’s latest Wi-Fi 6 certified access points.”
Performance Boosts For Efficient Working
According to Intel, the new vPro chip lineup will provide 40% faster application performance and a 36% boost when using office productivity apps – compared to a three-year-old laptop.
When compared to a five-year-old laptop, the new vPro processors can process data 44% faster. So, it might be time to upgrade some of your old business tech.
Hardware Shield To Lockdown CPUs
The new vPro processors also include an expanded Hardware Shield with built-in hardware-enhanced security features. In a world where cyberattacks are growing in number, it’s more important than ever to have your business’ security locked down.
Intel’s improved Hardware Shield locks down elements in a PC’s BIOS in the event that you’re targeted by an attacker.
If an attack should occur, Hardware Shield can even shift some functions of the CPU over to the GPU. This leaves the CPU free to handle critical work even if it’s under attack.
When Will vPro Processors Become Available?
At the moment, there’s no word on the pricing. For the release date, we should see these processors drop sometime in the next few months, but there’s no firm date as of yet.
If we hear any more information about these processors, we will keep you in the loop.
