Intel is aiming to improve your experience with your computer, by integrating new features that help the computer relate to you better. I can't help but imagine a new era of computers that can sense their surroundings and blend into the environment like in the movie "Her". While the time where your computer can also double as your soul mate isn't here yet, new technologies are inching us towards that future.
Intel is highlighting three major aspects in which the new processors will improve our lives, including; better graphics, longer battery life, and more immersive technologies. Intel is also revamping their wireless technologies for a new generation of mobile products.
The new HD5500, 6000, and Iris 6100 graphics feature support for DX 11.2, DX 12 (ready), OpenGL 4.3, OpenCL 2.0, and even 4K support over wireless. New decoding support for VP8, VP9, and HEVC are included which should expand the popularity of Intel graphics for media playback and transcoding.
I had the chance to see Intel's new RealSense technology in person at IDF with the Dell Venue 8 7000. RealSense uses three cameras to capture images in 3D which can then be transferred to a computer model and even 3D printed. This technology will shape the future of affordable 3D scanning technology.
Intel is also sporting new improvements to their voice recognition technology, but if you want to take full advantage of it, you will need a third-party application. The DSP enhancements allow for features like Wake on Voice, we might soon see people talking to both their smartphones and notebooks.
