Welcome to 7th Heaven

Right off the bat, 7th Gen Intel® Core™ processors deliver more immersive entertainment experiences such as 4K UHD, virtual reality and e-sports. Video creation, editing and playback are faster. Gaming is more fluid and engaging, and battery life is longer. 7th gen even makes work better. Rapid startup, facial recognition and fingerprint support, and effortless multi-tasking between apps heighten productivity and reduce hassle. And, this is increasingly important to your customers who have come to expect their business technology to be as advanced as their personal technology. They want the same kind of deep and immersive functionality in their work environments as they experience in their everyday lives.

This is where the new family of 7th Gen Intel® Core™ processors knocks the cover off the ball. Built on 14nm+ process technology, these processors are faster and more responsive. Intel’s engineering and manufacturing teams have drawn significantly more out of their 14nm process technology than before. 7th Gen Intel® Core™ processors deliver up to 12 percent faster productivity performance and up to 19 percent faster web performance over the previous generation from just a year ago.

A Good Reason to Upgrade
