Intel Announces Availability of 5th Gen. Core vPro Processor Family

Intel Corporation today announced the availability of its 5th generation Intel Core vPro processor family that provides cutting-edge features to enable a new and rapidly shifting workplace. To meet the needs of a more mobile and dynamic workforce, the latest iteration of Intel Core vPro processors offer wireless innovations, built-in security, faster performance and improved manageability that will allow workers and companies to improve their productivity and stay competitive.

With the new 5th generation Intel Core vPro processors, Intel addresses three specific areas to enable a better way to work and provide a better experience for users and companies: PC design innovation, wireless display and wireless docking. Businesses can choose from a variety of never-before-seen PC designs across 2 in 1s, Ultrabooks, ultrathin clamshells and mini PCs that offer up to twice the battery life and more than twice the performance, enabling form factors that are up to three times thinner and 50 percent lighter than a laptop PC from just four years ago.
Intel Pro Wireless Display (Intel Pro WiDi) makes every presentation and conference room a cable-free zone. While delivering enhanced usability for business users with flexible presenter controls and privacy, it also supports key IT requirements such as wireless channel management to mitigate network congestion risk and security vulnerabilities, and the ability to efficiently update and manage adapters remotely.

Intel Wireless Docking allows users to be connected and ready to work the moment they walk up to their desk. This secure and manageable, wire-free technology based on Intel Wireless Gigabit technology enables systems to automatically dock to monitors, keyboards, mice and USB accessories and eliminates the need for traditional mechanical docks.

"Our goal is to enable all users to simply work better by offsetting the growing challenges of today's businesses," said Tom Garrison, vice president and general manager of Intel's Business Client Platforms. "With new devices based on 5th generation Intel Core vPro processors, we aim to transform the user experience by helping them compute from virtually anywhere without the clutter and burden of wires."

New 2 in 1s, Ultrabooks, ultrathin clamshells and mini PCs based on 5th generation Intel Core vPro processors are available now from 12 leading PC manufacturers with more expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

"There is a long history of technology-led, workplace transformation," said Genevieve Bell, vice president and Intel Fellow. "Innovations in form factors, design, and infrastructure has shifted not only the way we work, but the kind of things we can do at work."

In addition to device innovation and workplace productivity improvements, 5th generation Intel Core vPro processors provide hardware-enhanced security and manageability capabilities. When paired with the Intel Solid-State Drive Pro 2500 Series, IT departments can implement built-in data encryption capabilities, while users enjoy protection so smart, they'll never feel the difference. Intel Identity Protection helps to simplify authentication and helps ensure the right people have access to the right information at the right time.3

As workplace needs become increasingly mobile, it's even more critical for IT to be able to keep devices healthy and protected while not impacting user productivity. Remote management over wired and wireless networks and across all device types is made possible with Intel Active Management Technology, even if the operating system is down or the device is powered off.3

The 5th generation Intel Core vPro processor family enables workplace transformations that can result in hundreds of billions of dollars of productivity enhancements to businesses of all sizes. By removing the wires, delivering outstanding performance and battery life, and choosing the optimized form factor to meet the needs of each employee across the spectrum of innovative designs, Intel is delivering a truly optimized business platform that will change the way work is done.

I'm wondering how they cool that thing. Looks like two CPUs on one chip unless something flew over my head.

http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/chipsets/performance-chipsets/z97-chipset-brief.html so gonna put a dual core on a z97 :laugh:
http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/core/5th-gen-core-processor-family.html sweet.. the integrated graphics have 12x the performance of a toaster

I get excited over die shrinks but this is not exciting at all to me.
I read a article a few weeks ago that said these cpu's have a 3 percent performance increase in office applications.

the 5th generation is meant for gpu
Skylake is where cpu performance will increase
Its called the tick tock strategy!

I guess you missed that part O.O

gpu and cpu
if it were 2 cpus I would be running at light speed with my mooneyyyyy :D

I didnt miss anything...
if broadwell is meant for the performance of the integrated graphics and people believe the sad advertising that includes gaming then they will be sad..
its just bringing longer battery life and some more features for laptops and stuff..

@Toothless, that extra die you see on there is the gpu portion.

I think it is just how LV/ULV class chips look with the CPU+SB Chipset in the same package.

That could be. There have been other intel chips that had the gpu on the side like that though. It does have an intel gpu in there somewhere too

More CPU`s should have vPro technology especially Baytrail because remote BIOS in event of a server failure is very great. i5 4690 is the best CPU from Intel because of performace/price and vPro.

How is everyone confused on that second die? THATS THE PCH CONTROL HUB/MEMORY CONTROLLER. Thats been a thing since sandy bridge ULV launched. ULV chips contain two seperate dies due to cooling constraints, that second square die runs cool and does not require active cooling, while the rectangle is the cpu and gpu cores and does require cooling. this allows for a smaller heatsink assembly (important for ultrabooks) if you take the heatsink off of one of these chips, you will only find thermal paste on the rectangle. the gpu has been integrated into the cpu die since sandybridge, and was only a seperate die for the first gen core i series.

you mean that tick tock strategy that has barely increased IPC for over four years? The same company that has been focusing on the gpu and power consumption, and NOT cpu performance? I guess you missed that part :P

Did you read the part where it said vPro and workforce? Not every computer is for games you know. Sheesh.

I still think it might be a gpu, but it is more likely the chipset. The iris pro was off die.

Lame says it is not cool, which I find to be an inadequate measure. Intel graphics are actually pretty decent for what they are. Intel hd4600 is comparable to my old 9800gt of which I started gaming on. For a very low power gpu it is quite capable. If you set your expectations where they should be, it is a very quality gpu.

yeah I know they are good for a lot things and even a number of games. would be nice to see what AMD and Intel could do together on a apu :laugh: I guess AMD will just usher in the age of the powerful apu with out them.

Nice picture. Is that second die the PCH part of an SoC or is it the eDRAM for the Iris Pro? I think it's the integrated PCH making it an SoC but a confirmation could be nice. :)
