SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 24, 2006 – The way the world
views and uses business PCs is about to change with the introduction of Intel
Corporation’s new Intel® vPro™ technology, a revolutionary shift
in desktop PC security and manageability along with remarkable energy-saving
computing performance. Businesses today are plagued by increasing economic and
security threats such as malicious viruses, spyware and identity theft, while
IT managers are driven to improve processes 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.
“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,” said William
A. Swope, Intel vice president and director of Digital Enterprise Brand Management.
“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 (Intel®
AMT) and Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT). Intel VT will
be integrated into the dual-core processor while the next-generation Intel AMT
will be integrated into the new platform chipset. These hardware innovations,
when combined with industry-enabled software solutions, represent the superior
manageability and strengthened security behind the Intel vPro brand.
