Intel Thwarts Hackers

LAKE WALES, Fla.—Intel announced it 6th Generation Core processors at the Gamecon Congress 2015 (Aug. 5-9, Cologne, Germany) however they left out secret details about new vPro on-chip hardware important to business uses. Of the half dozen new hardware capabilities in 6th Gen vPro Cores, the more important are Authenticate and Unite, both of which use on-chip hardware Intel claims is unhackable to verify the identity of users and to allow them to project their screens onto any WiDi (wireless display) in the world, respectively.

“The 6th generation vPro Cores are transforming the workplace into a more productive, more secure, more collaborative experience for business users than every before,” Intel Business Client General Manager Tom Garrison told EE Times. “Enterprises are now allowing users to choose their devices, from Windows to Apple's iOS, and we are lowering the price of transforming the workplace to accommodate them—in fact at Intel itself we dropped our workplace cost per user from $250 before transformation to $150 afterwards.”

Intel now supports three-ways for 6th Gen vPro Core users to 'dock' with their business network, WiDi (wireless display capabilities) for which they claim 300 design wins, WiGig for which they claim twice as many 6th generation design wins, or the wired Thunderbolt dock with also charges the laptop as well as offers 40-Gbit speeds.

Intel claims that its 6th generation cores are giving 2.5-fold performance improvements, three-times the battery life and 30-times faster graphics performance (over five-year old laptops that it claims some businesses are still using), plus its offering Xeon-caliber performance for mobile users. But the “Rolls Royce” of their announcement is Intel's authentication hardware.
