5th Generation Intel Core vPro Processors Aim to Transform Today’s Workplace

Intel unwires the workplace with wireless display and docking technology in its 5th generation Core vPro processor.

Intel Corporation has released its 5th generation Intel Core vPro processor family. The latest iteration of Intel Core vPro processors boast wireless innovations, built-in security, faster performance, and improved manageability designed to improve productivity in the workplace.

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 range of new PC designs across 2-in-1s, ultrabooks, ultra-thin clamshells and mini PCs that offer up to twice the battery life and more than twice the performance in form factors that are up to three times thinner and 50 percent lighter than a laptop PC from just four years ago, states Intel.

Features of the 5th generation Intel Core vPro processor family include:

  • Intel Pro Wireless Display (Intel Pro WiDi) enables businesses to collaborate and share more efficiently, review presentation files, and edit documents on conference room displays, with enhanced privacy, security, and IT manageability.
  • Intel Wireless Docking allows users to be connected and ready to work the moment they walk up to their desk. This wire-free technology based on Intel Wireless Gigabit technology enables systems to automatically dock to monitors, keyboards, mice, and USB accessories.
  • When paired with the Intel Solid-State Drive Pro 2500 Series, IT departments can implement built-in data encryption capabilities.
  • Intel Identity Protection helps to simplify authentication and helps ensure the right people have access to the right information at the right time.
  • Intel Active Management Technology provides remote management over wired and wireless networks and across all device types, even if the operating system is down or the device is powered off.

†”Our goal is to enable all users to simply work better by offsetting the growing challenges of today’s businesses,” says 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 now available with more expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
