Intel microsoft refresh sb (august 2013)

  1. 1. The Clock Is Ticking As of April 2014, Microsoft will no longer support Windows XP*. When security patches and system updates cease, you’ll need to fill the vacuum with expensive custom software development and increasingly complex management and support efforts to address growing incompatibilities. You’ll also increase your risk of falling prey to malware, failing audits, and losing critical certifications. Even productivity will suffer as your workers grow frustrated with slower performance, outdated technologies, and a lack of support for newer devices. Challenges Bring Opportunities When weighing the costs and benefits of upgrading, many decision makers focus on the initial capital expense. But as Figure 1 shows, after about three years, support and remediation costs rise significantly, increasing your total cost of ownership (TCO). Newer systems are more cost effective because they are easier to manage, operate more efficiently, and reduce remediation costs by keeping you safer.1 Hardware-Enhanced Security Protecting your customers, employees, and data is critical to your business. By migrating to Windows 7 or Windows 8 on devices powered by Intel® Core™ processors, you can take advantage of stronger, hardware-enhanced security features with exceptional manageability and performance. Intel technologies establish a secure root of trust that provides better protection and attestation for the operating system and the applications above, along with stronger, accelerated encryption, identity protection, and the ability to remotely lock down lost or stolen devices. Is Windows XP* Saving You Money or Costing You a Fortune? Modern PCs powered by fast, efficient Intel® Core™ processors and Windows 7* or Windows 8 can help reduce your total cost of ownership

Comprehensive Remote Management Newer devices powered by Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors offer comprehensive remote management with Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) and remote keyboard, video, and mouse (KVM) capabilities. Administrators can remediate problems, push out updates, and even restart or access remote systems that are powered down or have disabled operating systems. This high degree of manageability and access can translate into lower support costs and higher levels of uptime and satisfaction for users. Fast, Efficient Computing Windows XP and similar-vintage PCs were state of the art in 2001, but by today’s standard they lag in performance and efficiency. In comparison, devices powered by 3rd and 4th generation Intel Core processors and Windows 7 or Windows 8 offer fast, efficient operation, with higher productivity and usability. With Windows 8, users have a consistent user experience with touch-enabled computing across PCs, Ultrabook™ devices, and tablet devices. Enhanced usability translates into lower training and support costs while meeting the high expectations of users looking for a fast, reliable, and flexible experience. State of the Art Performance, Lower TCO Don’t get caught without a game plan when support expires for Windows XP. Learn more about the cost, security, and performance benefits of Windows 7 and Windows 8 on devices powered by current generation Intel Core processors. COMPARED TO PREVIOUS GENERATION PROCESSORS: • 4th generation Intel® Core™ processors use 50 percent less power at idle and standby.2 • 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processors are up to 90 percent faster at multitasking.3 Figure 1.
