Intel ( has introduced Intel Core processors, extending the availability of its award-winning Intel Core processor family to ultra-thin laptops. The number 32 is key — Intel’s chip design and manufacturing dubbed “32 nanometers” delivers 32 percent slimmer laptops and more than 32% better performance.

Based on Intel’s 32 nanometer (nm) technology manufacturing, the processors are more than 32% smaller and deliver more than 32% better performance, says Mooly Eden, vice president and general manager of the PC Client Group at Intel. These new processors also reduce power consumption3 more than 15%, resulting in great battery life, he adds.

They also sport Intel’s Turbo Boost technology, which will automatically accelerate performance. And Intel Hyper-Threading Technology, available in Intel Core i7, Intel Core i5 and Intel Core i3 processors, provides responsiveness and helps reduce latency when performing several tasks simultaneously, Eden says. Plus, with Intel HD Graphics, the processors deliver crystal-clear visuals, vibrant colors and smooth high-definition (HD) video and audio playback, he adds.
