IT departments for medium-sized companies face constant pressure to do more with less, given their limited IT budgets. Some businesses might try to stretch their IT dollars by extending the lives of the older PCs their workers use on a daily basis. But three-year-old (and older) devices can lack the performance, security, manageability, and stability enabled by modern PCs built on newer Intel® ...Core™ vPro® processors, running Windows* 10. Is it worth the trade-off for organizations to keep using outdated devices, despite the likely benefits offered by newer PCs? To help organizations make an informed decision, Prowess Consulting conducted testing that compared the performance and capabilities of Windows* 10 running on three-year-old devices, powered by 6th Generation Intel® Core™ vPro® processors, to newer devices, powered by the latest 8th Generation Intel® Core™ vPro® processors. We ran real-world tests, which go beyond industry-standard benchmarking, by running workloads common to modern workers.
