Intel, on Wednesday, launched its fourth generation core processor.

“This is the largest generation-over-generation gain in the company’s history, equating to nine hours of battery life in active workloads for some Ultrabooks based on the new processors,” Intel South Asia Managing Director (Sales and Marketing Group) Debjani Ghosh said here.

The latest processor would serve as the foundation for computing in two-in-one devices, which work as a PC as well as a tablet, she added.

The 4th generation processor enables every day computing to be about two times faster. It helps systems wake up around eight times faster, and allows users to edit and share HD video about 20 times faster than a similar four-year-old computer.

PC makers such as Acer, Dell, Hewlett-Packard and Lenovo are in the process of launching products with the latest Intel processor.
