In the on-going event of Computex 2015 in Taipei, Taiwan, Intel has just announced the Fifth Gen Core Processors, Thunderbolt 3 with reversible USB Type-C, Intel Unite and the 5th generation Intel® Core mobile processors for mobile and IoT with integrated Intel® Iris Pro Graphics.
For starters, Intel Unite was introduced as a new and cost-effective business solution designed for easy intuitive collaboration and improved meeting productivity.
With a select Intel Core V Pro processor-based mini PC in the conference room along with the Intel Unite application running on devices, existing conference rooms will get modernized and transform into smart meeting spots with enhanced security.
Secondly, the company also introduced the new Thunderbolt 3 acts as a "superset" host for USB 3.1 (at full 10Gbps speed), DisplayPort 1.2, PCI Express Gen 3 and its own Thunderbolt standard.
The updated Thunderbolt 3 now supports speeds up to 40 gigabits per second, four times faster and with twice the video bandwidth of any other cable, while still being able to supply power.
With its full support for USB 3.1 it delivers power based on the USB spec, able to push 100 watts for notebook charging and deliver 15 watts for bus-powered devices.
