Intel All-New Core Processor Family Launch

Intel All-New Core Processor Family Launch

What an EXCITING day it was – I’m sure you guys read the Core i3-530 review. ๐Ÿ™‚ Today, Intel Malaysia launches the i3-530 and a host of other new goods for the consumers.


I was there early at Zinc Art Space in Bangsar. Right outside the venue – it was clear who are the stars of the launch.

People are all around already, I proceeded with my registration as usual – if not later they lasso me into their chamber of who-knows-what LOL. Ok, pardon the less formal approach.

Not long after that, we were finally allowed to enter the gallery. Since the event was slated to be at 4.30pm and KL traffic jam isn’t something surprising, it’s not surprising too that there’s plenty of seats for me to choose…… but before that……..

Here’s my poster! Yup, it was for the Intel What’s Your Core? contest. ๐Ÿ˜€ My poster was shortlisted and printed out for display! You can view the clearer version here.

And what is an Intel launch without Channel Platform Manager of Intel Malaysia รขโ‚ฌโ€œ Mr Tan Guan Boon.

Both of them presenting the many nitty gritty details of what transpired, like what goes on in the background during the design, for example planning ahead to cater for future computing needs.

And what would Guan Boon be without the product demo! Right?

Guan Boon demonstrates the power of Core i3 / i5 32nm Clarkdale models vs the existing benchmarks (no need to guess who’s the winner), the Turbo-Boost technology, the Hyper-Threading technology, the WiFi technology, and even how the GPU was integrated into the CPU and how it helps in video playback and gaming.
