Exceptional Performance, Incredible Productivity

Maximize your productivity, creativity and collaboration. With the all-new P-cores and E-cores, 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors make advanced professional and creation applications smooth and easy, like VFX, 3D rendering, complex 3D CAD, AI development, and edge deployments. The Intel® W680 Chipset maximizes throughput and responsiveness, with support for 16 Processor PCIe Gen 5.0 lanes and increased DMI (from 3.0 to 4.0) connect throughput over previous generation to drive performance without slowdowns.

Easy to Secure & Manage

The Intel® W680 Chipset delivers hardened security and trusted reliability. Error Correcting Code (ECC) memory support minimizes errors and delivers a stable engineering and design platform. When paired with the right Intel® Core™ processors, you can get support for the Intel vPro platform, which gives businesses the tools to manage and secure workstations. Intel® Hardware Shield provides an evolving set of hardware-based technologies to reduce attack surface, all while reporting the current security configuration to the operating system. Plus, Modern Manageability with Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel ®AMT) and Intel® Endpoint Management Assistant (Intel® EMA) enable IT teams to remotely manage thousands of endpoints through the cloud inside or outside the corporate firewall.
