Intel is ready to launch WiDi a insider movie service with 1080p content.Intel WiDi 2.0 will let you stream it to your TV and if you unlike iTunes or really anything else out there, then Intel’s Insider will allow those with Core 2011-powered laptops or desktops to purchase or rent the latest movies in full HD……..
Intel Corporation introduced its game-changing 2nd Generation Intel Core processor family today. Intel highlighted several surprising new features, services and partnerships that combine to deliver an entirely new visual experience with processor graphics built in. More than 500 desktop and laptop PCs are expected from all major OEMs worldwide throughout the next year.New features include Intel Insider, Intel Quick Sync Video and a new version of the company’s award-winning Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) which now adds 1080p HD and content protection for those wishing to beam premium HD content from their laptop screen to their TV.
The 2nd Generation Intel Core processor family is the first “visibly smart” microarchitecture to combine visual and 3D graphics technology with performance-leading microprocessors on a single chip. Incorporating the newly architected Intel HD Graphics on each 32nm die enables significant graphics performance improvements over previous generation graphics for both HD media processing and mainstream gaming. The chips improve performance and yet still offer great battery life and the ability to design thinner, lighter and more innovative laptops and all-in-one PCs.
New processor graphics technology will focus on the areas where most people are computing today: high-definition (HD) video, photos, mainstream gaming, multi-tasking and online socializing and multimedia. Enhanced visual technologies like next-generation Intel HD graphics are built into every 2nd Generation Intel Core processor.Additionally, a surprise new feature of the next-generation PC and laptop processors, Intel Insider will give consumers access to movies on their PCs in true high definition that were not available before.
Additional Intel WiDi 2.0 improvements include support for 1080pHD as well as protected content either streaming from the Internet or played locally from a Blu-ray or DVD player.Another unique element of the visual experience built into the 2nd Generation Intel Core processor family is Intel Quick Sync Video. This built-in hardware acceleration takes the wait out of editing and sharing videos with astonishing performance that completes in minutes what used to take hours.The Core i3, i5 and i7 processors also include the enhanced Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0.
Other new chip features include Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX), Intel InTru 3-D and Intel Clear Video Technology HD. Intel InTru 3-D enables immersive stereoscopic 3D to 3D-capable HDTVs or monitors via HDMI 1.4, making movie excitement almost come out of the screen. Intel AVX increases performance for demanding visual applications like audio processing and professional video image editing like stitching together multiple photographs. Intel Clear Video improves the visual quality and color fidelity during video playback for a spectacular screen experience.
To make it easy for users to find a 2nd Generation Core-based system that is just right for their particular needs, Intel is also announcing a wide array of SKUs including Intel vPro enabled processors. The chips are made on Intel’s 32 nanometer manufacturing process on the company’s second-generation high-k metal gate transistors. These unique advantages further boost performance; reduce power consumption for better battery life and smaller designs, and lower overall manufacturing costs.
