Is Your Core ‘Smart’?
It’s Monday, Consumer Electronics Show is over, we’re all back from Vegas and best of all – we unveiled our latest line of processors that are set to turn your computers into the ‘smartest’ PC on the block. On January 7th, our CEO announced our latest family of ‘Core’ processors at his CES Keynote – the all new 2010 Intel® Core™ processor family featuring the trio of i3, i5, and i7.
One of my favorite quotes from Paul’s keynote was about how we are no longer ‘confined’ to our computer…
“Computing is no longer confined to your computer – it’s everywhere,” Otellini said during his CES keynote speech. “Advances in connectivity, intuitive user interfaces, immersive content and computer chip performance have allowed computing to move into new areas. Computing moving into all manner of devices and experiences all around us improves our personal productivity and enjoyment.” (credit: Intel Pressroom)
The reviews are in from several of the major review sites and, from the word go – it’s a smashing success. From my read of Anand Lal Shimpi’s review the biggest ‘feature’ of the new Core i5 processor (‘Arrandale’) is the vastly improved performance. Anand has been reviewing our technology for a long time and, in my opinion, is one of the best at providing a comprehensive and detail rich review of each sku we release. This round of reviews does not disappoint.
As always, Engadget has the most comprehensive blog post about Paul’s Keynote @ CES, and a quick search on Twitter reveals that the buzz about our new processor family was at it’s peak during the show and continues on even after the ubergeeks have left Sin City. The only question left – When are YOU upgrading?
