Advanced UI Features with Intel® vPro™ Technology
Intel Corporation commissioned Principled Technologies to compare the performance in common business scenarios that utilize advanced user interface features in Microsoft Windows Vista* of an Intel® vPro™ technology based PC with that of three other platforms. We tested three scenarios that took advantage of various ...new features of Windows Vista. We made a combination of hard performance measurements and subjective quality assessments on the following systems:
• Intel® Core™2 Duo processor E6700 on an Intel® vPro™ 965 (DQ965GF) motherboard
• Intel® Pentium® D processor 930 on an Intel® D945GTP motherboard
• Intel Pentium® 4 processor 630 on an Intel D945GTP motherboard
• Intel Pentium 4 processor 2.8 GHz on an Intel® D865GBF motherboard
As Figure 1 shows, the Intel vPro technology based PC with the Intel Core 2 Duo processor E6700 significantly outperformed the other PCs in the two scenarios in which we made hard performance measurements. The Intel vPro technology based PC with the Intel Core 2 Duo processor E6700 was from 1.30 times to 1.37 times faster on different applications and tasks and averaged 1.33 times faster across all the tasks than the Intel Pentium D processor 930 based PC. (In all comparisons in which we cite the average of task times, we use the geometric mean of the normalized times for each task.)
Compared to the Intel Pentium 4 processor 2.8GHz based PC with the Intel D865GBF motherboard, the Intel vPro technology based PC was from 1.94 to 3.82 times faster on different applications and tasks and averaged 2.72 times faster.
