Intel Philippines Wraps Up 2013 With Year in Review
This year, Intel launched a range of exciting products focusing on innovation and delivering next generation processors that became the backbone for a new era of thinner, faster, and more portable devices. Intel also worked closely with industry experts and government heads to help connect people across the Asia Pacific region, and provide cost-effective solutions to address key issues such as education and training.
Changing the PC Landscape
One of the anticipated announcements of the year was the release of Intel’s 4th Generation Core processor,enabling a range of 2 in 1 convertible devices that can act as both a tablet and a PC.
It wasn’t just tablets and desktops that surprised and delighted in 2013, the launch of Intel’s Silvermont microarchitecture in May introduced an innovative 22nm Tri-Gate System-on-a-Chip (SoC) process, promising to deliver significant increases in performance and energy efficiency.
Another massive release for the device market was the Intel Atom Processor Z3000 series which has been designed for tablets and smartphones. Known as Bay Trail, the chip has been designed to increase battery life on high usage devices and allows manufacturers to provide thinner, lighter, and more powerful devices at a range of different price points.
2013 saw Intel launch the Big Data Innovation Center in Singapore with Dell and Revolution Analytics. It provides a platform for companies to test-run big data initiatives and proof-of-concepts for deployment.
Intel also announced its first venture into Big Data software with the Intel Distribution for Apache Hadoop software. Intel believes the conceptual technology can help governments prepare for smart cities and assist telecommunications companies to improve their network and revenue streams.
Changing the way we view data center-based graphics – the new Intel Xeon E3-1200 v3 product family is a huge leap forward in the design of processors. Built on the 22-nanometer manufacturing process and featuring the "Haswell" architecture, the new Intel processor microarchitecture transforms server capabilities and creates new possibilities for the data center.
Enabling Tomorrow's Innovators
Intel believes that education is a fundamental right for everyone, and that educating and providing girls and women with the opportunities to succeed will break the cycle of generational poverty. As a founding strategic partner of 10x10, Intel is extremely proud of our collaboration on the creation of an important documentary film called “Girl Rising” and accompanying global social action campaign.
The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair is one of the world’s largest high school science research competitions that encourages millions of students to use their imagination to come up with innovative solutions across a range of areas. Young scientists and next-generation entrepreneurs are encouraged to tackle topics ranging from environmental disasters to cancer treatments.
Intel has a strong focus on education and believes in working closely with government and educators to enable people to develop employable skills all over the world.
