Intel Corporation announced earlier that it would upgrade the Athena certification program. After the upgrade, the certification program was renamed Intel EVO and certified for manufacturers.
The certification program actually puts forward requirements for the hardware and performance of laptop computers, and the Intel certification mark is added to devices that meet the requirements of the Intel certification program.
Devices submitted for certification under Intel’s requirements need to meet multiple conditions, including the use of Intel’s 11th generation processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics displays.
Of course, ordinary consumers may not pay too much attention to these contents, so Intel took advantage of the upcoming shopping festival to release a video to promote the certification program.
