If there’s ever a partnership in the tech world so close that the two sides literally made each other’s success, it’s Intel and Microsoft (so much so that “Wintel” has come to refer to any machine with Intel processor and Microsoft’s Windows OS). And now Intel has reaffirms it commitment to do good with Windows 10 and its partnership with Redmond in a recent blog post.
The blog post, aptly titled “Intel + Microsoft = A new era of computing,” details the ways in which new, innovative features on Windows 10 can deliver “fresh, unsurpassed experiences” with Intel hardware and software. These range from battery optimization for “Hey Cortana” off-hand feature, Intel RealSense camera and Windows Hello, to a new wireless standard for peripherals called WiGig and improvements to Microsoft Edge. The blog post comes at a special time, just days before Microsoft’s biggest ever product launch. The fruits of the collaboration between the two companies will most likely be seen in the upcoming Surface Pro 4, set to be unveiled tomorrow.
Apart from these specific features, Intel also echoes Microsoft’s ambition for converging all Windows devices into running its latest OS, and that Windows 10 will bring a “new era of computing experience” with its universality and ubiquity. We can safely assume, as the blog also stated, that Intel will be right with Microsoft, providing the right platform for its vision to thrive, and their decades-long partnership will continue for yet some time.Further reading: Intel, Microsoft
