2nd generation Intel® Core™ and Intel® Core™ vPro™ Processor Families
The smart new processors from Intel for business PCs are designed with productivity in mind—productivity of users and IT. Users gain a higher level of processor performance when their applications need it most, while IT benefits from the hardware-assisted features of 2nd generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors, dramatically enhancing remote manageability and security.
Visibly Smart Performance
2nd generation Intel® Core™ and Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors offer a performance difference you can see, thanks to:
- Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0
- Four-way (or eight-way) multi-task processing
- Overall speed gains provided by new processor designs
Visibly smart performance also encompasses stunning, built-in visuals. No graphics cards necessary.
A Higher Degree of Manageability
The 2nd generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors help IT work smart. With advanced, hardware-assisted features built right in to the silicon, you can:
- Quickly deploy security patches across PCs
- Remotely unlock encrypted drives
- Manage data security settings, even when PCs are powered off¹
Expanded remote management capabilities such as hardware-based KVM Remote Control let you fix many issues remotely for the first time. What’s more, you see what your users see with greater clarity than ever before.²
