NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR) today announced it will offer Intel dual-core processor technology in NCR's automated teller machines (ATMs) and point-of-sale (POS) solutions.
Newly-ordered ATMs will now feature Intel dual-core processors, with upgrade kits available for the existing NCR Personas range. Having this processor technology within the ATM casing can provide up to 40 percent faster processing capacity with enhanced power savings.
NCR has collaborated with Intel to implement this new technology across NCR's broader range of products, including its next generation POS terminal, the NCR RealPOS 80XRT, introduced earlier this year.
The addition of the Intel dual-core processors into NCR's ATM and NCR RealPOS lines makes today's increasingly sophisticated assisted- and self-service transactions run faster and smoother, while providing a platform for the next generation of consumer experience and high-impact graphics. The enhanced electrical efficiency supports cooler and quieter systems, while enabling the transfer of power only to those areas of the processor that need it, thereby saving power. The built-in Intel Smart Cache also supports enhanced power efficiency and performance.
Alan Chow, chief technology officer for NCR, said, "The market has quickly recognised the value of the new dual-core technology in providing enhanced power savings while still maximising performance, scalability and investment protection for the future. Leading financial institutions and retail businesses worldwide are seeking ways to decrease carbon footprints and conserve resources while enhancing the efficiencies of technologies and processes within their reach. The energy savings now available by integrating dual-core technology within NCR ATMs and RealPOS solutions is just one of the ways NCR is helping our customers achieve a vision of sustainability."
