4th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors Enhance Healthcare Quality: BriefEnhancing Cost, Quality, and AccessDriving healthcare innovation with the 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor familyChallenges• Healthcare organizations are moving from 2-D to 3-D, adding richer content in an attempt to meet the growing need for better, faster data acquisition and use.• The move to higher-quality graphics content, including increased use of video and HD content, requires a new level of performance to meet growing compute-intensive demands.• Today’s competitive medical device marketplace is driving (original equipment manufacturers) OEMs to continually reduce time to market.• Greater optimization of the rising volumes of data must be achieved via improved analytics that can turn data into improved care.Solutions• The 4th generation Intel Core processors include enhancements to Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX) 2.0, which provide a significant performance improvement in integer/matrix-based calculations. The result is improved performance of image processing compared to the previous streaming SIMD extensions (SSE) industry-standard architecture (ISA).• The hardware-assisted encryption capabilities like new Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) for fast encryption enable ubiquitous platform encryption without slowing response times or affecting performance.Read the full 4th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors Enhance Healthcare Quality Solution Brief.
