Intel launches 7th generation processors to push 4K UHD to the masses

Quote:
Intel says that the modern-day consumer is now demanding an "immersive" experience from the internet and has unveiled the 7th generation Intel Core processor family to support this concept through 4K UHD, 360-degree video, and high-resolution video streaming.

On Tuesday, the tech giant said the new range of processors has been designed for a concept Intel calls the "immersive internet," the idea surrounding the web becoming richer in content.

According to Karen Regis, director of mobile platform marketing at Intel, consumers are demanding more immersive experiences such as 4K UHD, virtual reality, and e-sports -- alongside high-quality video -- and so the PC must transform to suit these trends.

The PC is the "ideal device for the immersive internet," the executive says, but there must be enough processing power to follow suit.

The 7th generation processors, developed under the codename "Kaby Lake," are built on the Skylake architecture. The 14nm processors are supported by a new media engine which is equipped with new HEVC 10-bit decode capabilities for better playback of media content up to 4K UHD and new VP9 decode features for improved 4K UHD,4K 360-degree playback while multitasking...


...Intel expects devices equipped with the new processor range to begin shipping by September, and over 100 products have been developed using the new hardware at different price points for the first wave. Roughly 350 new designs expected to hit the market by January 2017.

This seems like entertainment to me.

There is another side of society that requires capability for business, scientific and engineering development. This drives a country's gross domestic product that fuels a multitude of societies essential services like food, infrastructure, medical services, educational services......etc.

Hi,
Yep but they have sort of done away with all of their low budget data packages leaning more to unlimited or 1tb data of course for more money as long as you use other services = t.v./ cell..
But as you say they throttle actual speed as usual.
