Brings Intel vPro to Raptor Lake processors

Intel releases its vPro platform for the 13th generation Core processors. The introduction is especially interesting for large companies.

Intel vPro platform is now available on 13th Generation Intel processors. Intel launched Raptor Lake processors for laptops earlier this year, but still without vPro functionality. The first desktop processors date back to the end of last year. vPro integration now opens the door for desktop and notebook manufacturers to update their lineup of business laptops for large enterprises. Dell wasted no time with that.

For users, this ad is not relevant. Intel CPUs do the same with or without vPro. The main reason to activate the vPro platform on a Core processor is Intel Active Management Technology (AMT). This allows IT staff to remotely manage laptops, which can certainly be a great value-add in the context of large companies.

Little news under the sun

Intel points to better security and higher performance associated with vPro, but the news value there is really limited. Performance is not tied to vPro but to the Raptor Lake platform, which of course offers more horsepower and is more efficient than CPUs from a few generations ago.

In terms of security, vPro still provides hardware acceleration for security workloads within Windows. This is also an interesting addition. The functionality has already appeared last year with the release of the twelfth generation of Core processors.
