This afternoon, Intel Singapore held a media event to announce their new Core processor family as well as the inclusion of their proprietary Turbo Boost Technology for laptops, desktops and embedded devices.
Patrick Liew, Country Manager for Singapore, Intel Technology Asia, talked about users’ adoption of digital lifestyle and the need for performance to blog, do online shopping, gaming, etc.
“If you look at user-created content, a few years ago, you will be happy if you can do streaming of videos. Now, you need a powerful PC that can create the video you want to share with your friends online. The data from eMarketer shows that in 2008, 43% of US users are content creators. In about five years (in 2013), that figure will go up to 50%. And this trend is going to slow down anytime.”
At the event, we also saw various brands of laptops including Sony, ASUS, Lenovo, MSI, Fujitsu, Toshiba etc which are using the new Core processors. As to the availability of the laptops, it would be announced by the respective vendors.
