Global chip maker Intel on Jan 6th 2011 announced the launch of a new range of processors that deliver high quality audio-video capabilities, along with faster computing speeds.
Intel estimates that a 4-minute HD video that used to take 4 minutes to convert to play on an iPod would now take just 16 seconds.

                     The new processor technology focusses on high-definition videos, mainstream gaming, online socialising and multimedia and combines visual and 3D graphics technology with performance-leading microprocessors on a single chip.
                           "We have already started shipping the new processors to all leading OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) and the machines should be available in the market before March," Intel South Asia Managing Director R Sivakumar said. The devices with the new processor will be initially available at a premium of about 20 per cent compared with the older versions, he added.
               The new processors, including the new Intel Core i7, i5 and i3 processors, promise graphics features built right into the chips, which includes Intel Quick Sync Video, HD Graphics and Wireless Display 2.0
             Leading vendors like HCL, Wipro , HP , Toshiba and Dell are expected to launch over 500 models of devices with the new chips in the coming months. 
The new processor will also allow film studios to release their products online without the threat of piracy, since the processor has an inbuilt copyright-guarding technology.  Besides, the products based on the new family of processors will also receive a significant boost in battery life
