Is 6th Generation Intel Core processor the best?

6th Generation Intel Core processor
Intel today claimed that the 6th Generation Intel Core processor is the best processor from the chip vendor.

Intel admits that more than 500 million computers, which are in use, are slow to wake and their batteries don’t last long, etc. Incidentally, there is an “Intel Inside” in majority of your computers. AMD does not have the reach that Intel boasts.

Intel has built the 6th Generation Intel Core processor on the new Skylake microarchitecture on its 14nm manufacturing process technology.

What 6th Generation Intel Core processor promises?

# delivers up to two and a half times better performance
# triple the battery life
# graphics are 30 times better for smooth gaming and video experiences
# they can be half as thin and half the weight
# have faster wake up time
# battery life lasts virtually all day

Intel plans to offer more than 48 processors in the 6th Gen Intel Core, featuring IntelIris and Iris Pro graphics, as well as Intel Xeon E3-1500M processor for mobile workstations and Intel vProprocessors for business and enterprises.

In addition, Intel is offering more than 25 products for the Internet of Things (IoT) with up to 7-year long-life supply and error correcting code (ECC) at multiple TDP levels. Intel will be targeting Retail, medical, industrial, and digital surveillance and security industries.

The release of 6th Gen Intel Core is timely. It will boost the new purchases. IDC says PC shipments are expected to drop 8.7 percent in 2015 and not stabilize until 2017. Growth should resume in 2017, led by the commercial market, while consumer volume continues a small decline through the end of the forecast in 2019.

“New 6th Gen Intel Core-based systems are more responsive than ever with enhanced performance, battery life and security. And they can enable amazing new PC experiences like logging into your computer with your face and having a personal assistant respond to your voice,” said Kirk Skaugen, Intel senior vice president and general manager of the Client Computing Group.

IDC says free upgrades of Windows 10, a relative dearth of newer models, and channels that are reluctant to take stock will dampen the PC growth through 2016.

Intel feels that the combination of 6th Gen Intel Core, Windows 10 and beautiful new systems from PC manufacturers will prompt buyers to opt for a new computer.

More devices coming

The chip vendor is expanding its reach. The company said Intel Core M processors, which doubles the performance as compared with premium tablets, will include Intel Core m3, m5 and m7 processors to provide more choice. The the 6th Gen Intel Core M processor will power Intel Compute Stick lineup.

A new quad-core Intel Core i5 processor offers up to 60 percent improved mobile multitasking. Due to the new Intel Speed Shift technology, you can do a photo filter up to 45 percent faster.
