Intel: Virus Scanners Should Use the Performance of the GPU
Virus scanners, which paralyze the entire system in their work, have luckily become the absolute exception, a few years ago it was still different. The programs themselves have improved since then, of course, the hardware has also become much more powerful. However, a complete system review is still hard work that goes hand in hand with performance losses. Intel now wants to minimize this, by sharing the power of the integrated graphics processors.
According to Intel, testing with the 6th, 7th and 8th generation of Intel CPUs has seen significant reductions in CPU load, dropping from an average of 20 percent to as low as two percent after the integrated HD graphics chips are powered up , At the same time, the GPU virus scan requires less power, so battery life also benefits from this change on mobile devices.
“Intel Threat Detection” is the name of the technology that will debut in Windows 10. Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection in Windows 10 will be the first protection software to take advantage of this new feature, with a release scheduled for release later this month. Intel works according to its own data with numerous other AV manufacturers, which plan likewise appropriate updates.
