Intel Corporation has launched its new 4th generation series of processors in Kenya at Demo Africa 2013. These new processors will raise the bar on user experience by providing consumers with devices that meet the ever-changing needs from communicating, to gaming, and most of all increased battery life.

The launch of 4th generation Intel Core processors was announced at Demo Africa in Nairobi last week. The new processors will deliver 50 percent increase in battery life compared to previous generation enabling over 9 hours of battery life with stunning performance and two times the graphics capability.

In addition, the 4th generation Intel Core processors serve as a foundation to a new wave of 2-in-1s that will combine stunning PC performance with tablet-like mobility in one device and deliver on the Ultrabook vision

Speaking at the event, Chris Mwangi, Intel East Africa’s Field Applications Engineer explained consumers today have “charge anxiety” where they are constantly checking the charge on their PCs or tablets and always looking for a power source so that their devices don’t go off.

“With the 4th generation Intel Core processors, devices will boast huge extensions in battery life that will take consumers all the way through a busy day for as long as nine hours without the need to charge them. Furthermore, with the new 2-in-1 devices, it will allow them to switch between keyboard and touch screen depending on what the activity,” said Mwangi.

Intel, in adopting to consumer needs, has fashioned the new generation processor to allow users work effectively and more efficiently depending on how they use the devices.

For the avid gamers and gamer community, the 4th generation Intel Core processors will also have built-in graphics that will deliver discrete-level performance. Offered on select versions of the new Intel Core processors, Intel Iris™ graphics will bring the Ultrabook and other mobile PCs to life with built-in, eye-popping visual experiences.

Select Ultrabooks powered by 4th generation Intel Core processors will deliver the Intel performance people expect combined with the mobility and responsiveness of a tablet, making them the premium, ultra-versatile 2-in-1 devices. With touch capability and a keyboard, the system adapts to the user and also offers full application compatibility.

Furthermore, 2-in-1 and other Intel-based devices will showcase enhanced progress in bringing human like senses through the addition of touch, voice and facial recognition and other technologies. Called perceptual computing, these technologies will take advantage of Intel processing power to make interaction with devices natural, intuitive and immersive.

“Anyone in the market for a new device in the upcoming months will notice that the new devices coming into the shops now look and behave very differently from the familiar PC we’re used to: from sleek, good looking 2 in 1 devices with all-day battery life to great improvements in graphics and touch screen interaction. The PC has been transformed and it wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing innovations hidden away inside in the 4th generation Intel Core series of processors,” said Mwangi.
