Intel Corp. has unveiled its new seventh generation core processors. This generation of processors known as Kaby Lake, which was built for the immersive Internet, was developed at Intel Israel's development centers.
Intel VP and general manager Intel Israel Development Centers Ran Senderovitz said that the performance of the seventh generation chips was improved by 12% for applications and 19% for Internet use compared with the sixth generation chips.
He added, "Moreover, if you have computer at home that is four or five years old and then bought a PC with a seventh generation processor you'd see an improvement in speed of up to 70% in routine tasks."
Senderovitz explained that the main improvement is in the ability to play video material. Computers with 7G chips should be in the stores in September with availability increasing towards the end of the year.
He added, "When we started out on the project, we were only thinking about basic improvements from the previous generation. But we began looking at things differently with a lot of innovation and determination and we achieved major improvements. We are talking about amazing technologies, technologies of 14 nanometers, which is like taking a hair and dividing it by 8,000.”The Israeli team has done it again and accomplished achievements that we did not see in the Olympics - a year-on-year improvement of above 10%. The product will sell millions of units for billions of dollars."
