"Intel used an early-morning conference at today's Consumer Electronics Show to roll out 27 new processors, including 12 specifically aimed at embedded devices. Additions to the chipmaker's Core i3, i5, i7, and Xeon families, the CPUs have two or four cores, include on-chip graphics, and incorporate "Turbo Boost" technology, according to the company.

"Intel's announcement included 27 processors overall, including Core i3, i5, i7, and Xeon models. Features and performance generally increase with the size of the i number: According to Intel officials, the Core i5 has twice the performance of the Core 2 Duo CPU it will supplant.

"Intel says all its new Core processors are manufactured using the company's 32nm process, which includes second-generation high-k metal gate transistors. (The chipmaker invested $7 billion in the 32nm process in early 2009, writes Nicholas Kolakowski in a story for our sister publication eWEEK.com.)"
