processor family to create new visual experiences and lifestyles.

technology with performance leading microprocessors on a single chip.
New processor graphics technology will focus on the areas where most
people are computing today which includes high definition video, photos,
mainstream gaming, multi tasking, online socialising and multimedia.
Enhanced visual technologies like next generation Intel HD graphics are
built into every second generation Intel Core processor.
For consumers it is a very improved PC experience with better overall
power management together with greater efficiency and battery life.

videos with astonishing performance that is completed in minutes. Intel
estimated that a four minute HD video that used to take four minutes to
convert to play on an iPod would now take 16 seconds.
The Corei5 and i7 processors also include the enhanced Intel turbo

core and processor graphics resources to accelerate performance, giving
