Intel Corporation has introduced vPro technology, a new foundation for Intel’s multi-core server, desktop and mobile processors for computers.

Increasing economic and security threats such as malicious viruses, spyware and identity theft have plagued businesses and IT managers are trying to improve process and customer service models. Intel vPro technology will offer businesses and IT a competitive edge with breakthrough innovations and technologies to help get the most out of resources and shrinking IT budgets.

These benefits will be delivered later this year through broad collaborations with industry-leading software leaders and IT service companies, and support from PC system manufacturers around the world.

Amar Babu, MD, Sales & Marketing Group (South Asia), Intel India said, “Like Intel Centrino mobile technology and Intel Viiv technology, Intel vPro technology will bring together world-class innovations throughout the processor, chipsets, networking and software. Intel vPro technology represents significant advances in desktop PCs and will quite simply offer businesses security and manageability like never before all on one of the most powerful and energy-efficient PCs in the market.”

William A. Swope, VP & Director, Digital Enterprise Brand Management, Intel added, “Like Intel Centrino mobile technology and Intel Viiv technology, Intel vPro technology will bring together world-class innovations throughout the processor, chipsets, networking and software. This technology significantly advances desktop PCs and will quite simply offer businesses security and manageability like never before - all on one of the most powerful and energy-efficient PCs in the market.”

At the heart of the first Intel vPro-based PCs will be an Intel Core microarchitecture dual-core processor. This next-generation, 64-bit microarchitecture bestows significant gains in performance and reductions in power-consumption improving responsiveness and productivity.

Intel vPro technology also includes the second-generation of Intel Active Management Technology, to be integrated into the new platform chipset and Intel Virtualization Technology, to be integrated into the dual-core processor.

Leaders in the IT services industry could also benefit from the built-in manageability capabilities of the new technology. vPro-based PCs will also include Intel’s latest integrated graphics providing performance for mainstream business applications and being capable of delivering the full array of graphics interface features in Microsoft’s upcoming Windows Vista operating system.
