World’s first 22nm quad-core processors are finally here!

Intel Corporation has introduced the quad-core 3rd generation Intel Core processor family that according to the chip giant will be able to deliver dramatic visual and performance computing gains for gamers, media enthusiasts and mainstream users alike.

The new processors are the first chips in the world made using Intel’s 22-nanometer (nm) 3-D tri-Gate transistor technology.

The combination of Intel’s cutting-edge 3-D tri-gate transistor technology and architectural enhancements, the tech company said, help make possible up to double the 3-D graphics and HD media processing performance compared with previous generation of chips they manufactured.

This, they added, will result to stunning, built-in visual performance — “All the things people love to do on their PCs — from creating and editing videos and photos, surfing the Web, watching HD movies or playing mainstream games — are quicker, crisper and more life-like.”

The new range of CPUs will produce as much as 20 percent microprocessor performance improvements and new technologies to speed the flow of data to and from the chips, the new processors further extend Intel’s overall performance leadership, said the Santa Clara, California-based tech company.

The latest Intel’s quad core 3rd generation processors are now available for powerful, high-end desktop, laptop, and sleek all-in-one (AIO) designs.

Moreover, additional versions of the 3rd generation Intel Core processors will be available in the coming months to power a new wave of systems ranging from Ultrabook devices, to servers and intelligent systems in retail, healthcare and other industries.
