Highlights from the Community Manager
On Jan 5, 2011, Intel launched the 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ processor family (formerly code-named Sandy Bridge) for laptops and PCs. The new processors have a revolutionary new architecture that combines the computing “brain,” or microprocessor, with a graphics engine on the same die for the very first time. 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.
