Intel Cuts The Cord With New CPU: Chip Delivers Wireless Docking, Display Tech, Enhanced Security

Intel hopes its vision of the wireless workplace will spark the next big enterprise PC refresh with the release Thursday of its 5th generation Intel Core vPro processor.

The new chip targets the high end of the mobile enterprise market with new wireless docking and display technology, and packs IT department-friendly features that enhance device security and management.

"Intel is driving an enterprise mobile stake in the ground with this Broadwell release. It's feeling the heat on the low end of the mobile market from ARM and is sending a signal to its enterprise customers that Intel is going to continue to innovate and add value where its competitors just can't," said Todd Swank, senior director of product marketing at Equus Computer Systems, a Minnetonka, Minn.-based system builder.
