Intel Corp. has rolled out its 6th generation Intel Core processor family that promises to deliver improved performance and innovative immersive experiences at the lowest power levels. The company also said the products support a range of device designs, from the ultra-mobile compute stick, to 2 in 1s and huge high-definition All-in-One desktops, to novel mobile workstations.

Built on the Skylake microarchitecture on Intel's 14nm manufacturing process technology, 6th Gen Intel Core processors claim to deliver up to two and a half times better performance, triple the battery life, and graphics that are 30 times better for seamless and smooth gaming and video experiences versus the average 5-year-old computer. They can also be half as thin and half the weight, have faster wake up time and battery life that lasts virtually all day, Intel indicated.

The processor family enables a range of designs to fit virtually every need. Intel Core M processors, which can offer twice the performance of leading premium tablets, will now include brand levels Intel Core m3, m5 and m7 processors to provide people with more clarity and choice in finding the Intel Core M processor-based device that best meets their specific needs. The Intel Compute Stick line-up expands to include a version powered by the 6th Gen Intel Core M processor.

This generation of Intel processors also includes several firsts for mobile designs: a mobile "K" SKU that is unlocked to enable overclocking with even more user control, a quad-core Intel Core i5 processor that offers up to 60 per cent improved mobile multitasking, and the Intel Xeon E3 processor family now powering mobile workstations. The 6th Gen Intel Core processors deliver significant improvements in graphics performance to offer stunning visuals for gaming as well as compelling 4K content creation and media playback, the company added. The Intel Speed Shift technology claims to improve the responsiveness of mobile systems so people can, for example, apply a photo filter up to 45 per cent faster.

In addition, the 6th Gen Intel Core and Intel Xeon platforms promise a variety of features and experiences. More devices will feature Thunderbolt 3 for USB Type-C, enabling one compact port that does it all. A user-facing or world-facing Intel RealSense camera will be available on a range of new 6th Gen Intel Core processor-based 2 in 1s, notebooks and All-in-One desktop systems, offering new depth-sensing capabilities and immersive experiences that allow people to do things like take and share lifelike 3D selfies, scan objects and print in 3D, and easily remove and change their background during a video chat.
