The evening’s highlight was the introduction of two major 5th Gen Intel Core products, the Intel® Next Level of Computing (NUC), and the Intel Compute Stick. The Intel® NUC features the high performance and customizability of a traditional central processing unit (CPU) in a small form factor no larger than your palm. The size and affordability of the NUC ensures that everyone from enthusiasts to academe can take advantage of the features of the 5th Generation Intel Core processors without compromising mobility. On the other hand, the Intel Compute Stick is Intel’s solution to “screenification” by introducing a plug-and-play computing solution in the smallest form factor yet—a mini PC only slightly larger than a USB thumb drive—that plugs straight into a computer screen or an HDTV through the High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) port. The Intel Compute Stick, powered by a quad-core Intel Atom processor and equipped with a microSD card slot and a full-sized USB port, can be pre-installed with Windows 8.1 or Linux. This ensures a wide variety of usage options, such as a palm-sized Home Theatre system or a portable computer for off-site education programs in hard-to-reach communities in the Philippines.
“The latest offers under the Intel Core line-up allow us to address key areas of interest in the Philippines. The devices we have available here today range from products that provide high-end mobility with high-performance Intel Core m processors, to products designed specifically to bridge the narrowing digital divide, thereby promoting inclusiveness among communities which would benefit from Internet connectivity,” added Chisholm.
Mobility impact in the Philippines...
We all know that Philippines is a growth area in terms of technology area nowadays in the Asia Pacific Region. Reports by The World Bank and the World Economic Forum have shown that Filipinos are among the most active digital users in the region, with up to 40 million of the 115 million mobile device users connected to the Internet, ranging from Millennials who are starting to dominate the local workforce, to underprivileged communities who are starting to take advantage of affordable technological innovations.
“I’m very excited with the possibilities that the 5th Generation Intel Core processors opens up for the country, particularly how it will revolutionize the way Filipinos consume technology. The introduction of smaller but more powerful and affordable devices carrying the latest Intel Core processors allows us to provide solutions that help empower Filipino users and contribute to the continued development of the Philippine digital landscape,” concluded Chisholm.
Given all those details we witnesses and sent to us in the press release. I'm quite sure that 2015 is going to be an exciting year of computing. We'll all find out more about that in the coming months as we'll see more 5th gen Intel powered devices coming in the market.
