In the fast-paced world in which we work and play, we expect our Ultrabook™ devices, all-in-ones, and standard PCs to be instantly on and up-to-date with the latest information from the Internet.
A suite of three powerful technologies developed by Intel conserve battery life, deliver speed, and provide fresh Internet content 1:
- Intel® Rapid Start Technology2
- Intel® Smart Response Technology3
- Intel® Smart Connect Technology4
From off to on in a flash2
With Intel® Rapid Start Technology, your PC can go from being in a very deep sleep to fully awake in a flash. This responsiveness capability enables your device to consume lower levels of power5 when you’re not using it, yet resume quickly when you want to use it. You save time, and, if you’re using an Ultrabook™ device, this technology also extends the battery life. If you have an all-in-one, it allows the system to consume less power5. Either way, you can start up quickly and get right back to where you left off.
Intel® Rapid Start Technology is available on Ultrabook™ devices, all-in-ones, and standard PCs powered by the latest generation Intel® Core™ processor family.
Fast performance. Large storage.6
Intel® Smart Response Technology gives you the larger storage capacity of a traditional hard drive without sacrificing speed, delivering up to 2x faster performance1,7 and up to 2x faster game launches1,8—all while consuming less power. This feature recognizes and automatically stores your most frequently used applications, games, and files, so you can access then promptly and create, work, and game faster than ever before.
Intel® Smart Response Technology is available on Ultrabook™ devices, all-in-ones, and standard PCs powered by the latest generation Intel® Core™ processor family and Intel® Rapid Storage Technology 10.5 or higher.
Always up-to-date automatically4
No more waiting to connect online for the latest news from your friends or the world. With Intel® Smart Connect Technology, your email, social networks, and favorite apps that access the Internet are continually and automatically updated when the system is asleep. Just wake your PC and your online world is right there, always fresh, current, and ready to go whenever you are.
