The Intel Core Processor i5 and i7 was launched in Colombo last week after its entry in world markets last month.
This processor promises more power in processing videos, according to Intel Country Manager in Sri Lanka Indika De Zoysa. “We have now got the processor that can deliver the type of image quality and graphics many only dreamed about. With these processors the graphic output quality is greatly enhanced,’’ he told the launch.
The new processor being a 2nd generation Intel Core processors have built in visual capabilities. This 2nd Generation processor family is the first ‘visibly smart’ processors combining both 3D graphics and visual technology with performance leading Micro-processors on a single chip.
This new architecture incorporates Intel HD Graphics on each 32nm die enabling significantly improved graphics performance over previous generations of processors. This gives better performance in both the HD media and mainstream gaming applications, he said. Mr De Zoysa noted that 20 new processors of the same family had been released to the market simultaneously. As the future on computing will be more in using video files over simple pictures this processor will get the job done. Further the price of these new processors will be on par with the present versions, he added.
