Intel Officially Brings Skylake to the Business Segment
Intel’s ‘Skylake’ processors are now available for business devices.
Last month, Intel officially announced the availability of 6th generation Core processors for the business world. The new 6th generation Core and Core vPro processors are designed with the efficiency of businesses in mind, and both are designed to deliver a new level of productivity to offices and commercial businesses looking to maximize the potential of their businesses.
Compared to the previous generation Core architecture and businesscentric devices, the new ‘Skylake’ architecture has a performance level that is two and a half times better than its predecessors, with three times the battery life of devices from five years ago. Thanks to the combination of modern-day non-volatile memory formats working in tandem with it, devices running on the new ‘Skylake’ processor can wake four times faster than previous generation processors.
On top of that, Intel also announced that it will be releasing the world’s first Xeon processor for mobile workstations.
Intel also announced two new features that come with the new ‘Skylake’ processors: Intel Unite and Intel Authenticate. Intel Unite is based on the IoT concept of a Unite-certified building, in which several devices in the building can be easily accessed by devices that also have the new Intel Unite feature embedded in it.
Intel Authenticate is a new multi-layer security function that is designed to add another level of authentication factor on top of existing authentication factors, such as Bluetooth connections, PIN, biometrics, or even facial recognition software (such as Intel RealSense).
