vPro joins Centrino and Viiv

Just when you thought that Intel was through with their product branding, the company adds another to its repertoire. First there was Centrino which took the notebook industry by storm. Then Intel launched its Viiv platform for entertainment PCs. Now Intel is stamping the vPro brand on next generation business PCs.

PCs with the vPro branding will feature a 64-bit Core processor, Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) and Intel Virtualization Technology (VT). Intel's AMT technology will be incorporated into the processor, wile VT will be integrated into the accompanying chipset. Intel hopes that the combined technologies will provide a stable and secure platform with unmatched manageability.

Offering businesses avenues to reduce PC support costs, Intel AMT helps manage, inventory, diagnose and repair PCs even when systems are turned off or have crashed operating systems or hard drives. The second generation of Intel AMT offers the ability to isolate infected PCs before they impact the network and alert IT when threats are removed.

Further strengthening PC security, Intel VT allows for separate independent hardware-based environments inside a single PC so IT managers can create a dedicated, tamper-resistant service environment – or partition – where particular tasks or activities can run independently, invisible to and isolated from PC users.

Intel already has backing from many of the top names in the industry including Adobe, Cisco, Computer Associates, Hitachi, Kaspersky Lab, Lenovo, Microsoft, Novell and Symantec. While Intel's Centrino marketing campaign has been an overwhelming success in the notebook space, most of us are still waiting to see what the real benefits are of Intel's Viiv platform...

You changed the industry 13 years ago with your unexpected arrival at our doorsteps. As we thought we were going to get a simple 586. But if we compare CPU years to human years you would be about but only 260 yrs old (20 yrs per year). Your life has been long and in the end kind of flat. I remember wanting to dance on streets when you introduced MMX technology, even though I never clearly understood it at the time...but hey those bunny suits were bright and fun so what they hell.

So I tip back drink to you and hope you bring good things to all but most of all you bring back competition where it has been missing most...GAMING!!!

Uhh, they are bring Conroe to the table. This doesn't have anything to do with games, and wasn't meant to do so.
