The New 10th Gen Intel Core vPro Processors Are Here

With more people around the world working remotely than ever before, the demands of IT and end users are growing in volume and complexity. As a trusted partner to IT, we at Intel understand what is needed to deliver truly amazing experiences to users, whether they are in the office or at home. We have been building commercial PC know-how for over a decade, anticipating workplace trends, and listening to our customers to engineer a platform that is truly built for business. With the Intel vPro® platform, we deliver the business-class performance, built-in security features, modern, remote manageability and stable platforms to help companies not only stay up and running during this difficult time, but really thrive.

It’s against this backdrop that we are incredibly excited to bring the new 10th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro® processors to market. The Intel vPro® platform is the only truly integrated platform. We work closely with our ecosystem partners to validate and test systems so that all the components work seamlessly together to deliver optimized business user experiences that aren’t available anywhere else. Normally we would gather together to discuss the new innovations these processors bring to the platform, but given the circumstances, we’ve moved our discussion to an on-demand webinar.

We’re particularly excited to share more about the Intel vPro platform’s built-in security, fast, reliable connectivity, powerful remote manageability, business-class performance and supply chain validation. 
Built-in Business Security

With so many people working outside the corporate firewall, there’s an urgent need to increase security. We continue to innovate Intel Hardware Shield, which offers built-in platform protection, now with expanded below-the-OS and advanced threat protection features that raise the bar in PC security.
Best Wi-Fi for Video Conferencing [1][3]

No matter where you’re working—whether at home or at the office, or when travel becomes more prevalent again—Wi-Fi connectivity is incredibly important. The Intel vPro platform features integrated Wi-Fi 6, which is the best Wi-Fi technology for video conferencing.[1][3] This means fewer interruptions during video calls—something we can all appreciate.
Powerful Remote Manageability

The need for IT to effectively support workers remotely is also a challenge with an increasingly global and mobile workforce. Intel® Active Management Technology, with the addition of Intel® Endpoint Management Assistance, helps IT diagnose issues and repair them quickly and easily, as well as conduct regular PC maintenance over the cloud, in order to keep end users up and running.
Up to 40% Better Overall Performance[1][2]

Of course we also need high-performance processors to run video calls and all the other applications needed to do our jobs effectively, and the new 10th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro® processors deliver up to 40% better overall performance[1][2] vs. a 3-year-old laptop.
Engineered for Mobile Performance

Beyond speeds and feeds, we’re particularly excited about the Project Athena innovation program-based commercial laptops that are engineered for mobile performance. These laptops provide rapid responsiveness, worry-free battery life[4][5] and Instant Resume, for a more tailored experience.
Transparent Supply Chain

We are also thrilled to feature innovations like Intel® Transparent Supply Chain, which helps increase security by enabling the traceability and authenticity of PC components from factory to desk.

We can’t do this alone. We’ve collaborated with many of our long-time trusted partners—such as Cisco, Dell, HP, Lenovo, and Microsoft—to deliver innovations in connectivity, security, and system design that are essential in today’s world. In the 28-minute on-demand webinar, you’ll hear more about how our partners are using 10th Gen Intel Core vPro processors in the Intel vPro platform to bring exciting new devices and features to market. A few things to look for in the video:

1 Performance results are based on testing as of April 30, 2020 and May 4, 2020 and may not reflect all publicly available updates. See configuration disclosure for details. No product can be absolutely secure. Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.

3 As measured by OTA (Over the Air) Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) vs. Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) NB client Skype video conferencing latency test data, obtained in standard IT 20 MHz and 40 MHz network deployment scenarios. Wi-Fi networks consist of 8 NB clients with 7 clients generating 20 Mbps Wi-Fi traffic (using ixChariot traffic simulator) while 1 client conducts a 5 min Skype video conference session with a 9th client connected via 10/100/1000 Ethernet to a local server. Skype data obtained via Skype reporting application. 8 NB Wi-Fi network client specifications: Dell XPS 13 (10th Gen), Killer AX1650, Driver; OS: Win 10 19H1 64-bit, 9th NB Callee (wired) = Dell G7 15 7588, Killer E2400, Driver:, OS: Win 10 19H1 64-bit; Enterprise APs: (AC) Wi-Fi 5: Cisco 3800, FW:; (AX) Wi-Fi 6: Cisco 9130, FW: Wi-Fi 6 performance benefits require use of similarly configured Wi-Fi 6 networking infrastructure (routers, gateways, & APs) based on the IEEE 802.11ax wireless standard specification. Test data represents best case results through a controlled local network to show relative Wi-Fi 6 vs. Wi-Fi 5 technology differences. Actual real-world corporate results may vary and are expected to be higher due to 1) greater number of diverse clients, 2) higher network traffic levels, and 3) greater physical client distance from Skype server.
