Intel unveils upgraded 6th Gen Intel Core processors
Is it time to upgrade? It is if you’re going to get an upgrade to the new 6th Gen Intel® Core™ i5 and i7 processors.
The 6th Generation Intel® Core™ processors set a new standard for speed, performance and up to triple the battery life compared to current computers. The new i5 and i7 processors are optimized to run Windows more efficiently and securely.
The all new Skylake support DDR4 or DDR3L with the architecture supporting up to 64GB of ram. The new default speed is a blazing fast 2133MHz with potential for higher speeds with overclocking.
Sounds fantastic right? It is but new motherboards will need to be purchased as well because the CPUs require the new 1151 socket.
Intel’s take is right on and it is time for many home consumers and business to upgrade. There are “over 500 million computers in use today that are four to five years old or older. They are slow to wake, their batteries don’t last long, and they can’t take advantage of all the new experiences available today. Built on the new Skylake microarchitecture on Intel’s leading 14nm manufacturing process technology, 6th Gen Intel Core processors 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”.
The 6th Gen Intel Core processors offer a variety of additional features and more computers will have support for Thunderbolt™ 3 for USB Type-C for faster transfers on new phones and tablets.
