Intel uses antivirus programs gpu




Intel allows antivirus programs under Windows to use the GPU to complete scans faster. That makes the processor maker known. Windows Defender is the first program that will deploy Intel GPUs.

That shot of Intel processor
Intel calls the technique Accelerated Memory Scanning and it will work on systems with an Intel Core processor of the sixth generation, Skylake, and higher. On those systems, Windows Defender will be able to use the gpu, where the percentage of cpu power required by the application according to Intel decreases from 20 percent to 2 percent.

With this, scanning the computer for viruses would have less impact on the performance of the PC and would also require less power. Other antivirus programs can also use Accelerated Memory Scanning, but it is still unknown if and when they will do that.

Intel also presents Advanced Platform Telemetry. An algorithm looks at how software behaves normally and tries to find deviant patterns in for example data centers. For example, the number of false positives must decrease and the algorithm must also find malware that is still unknown. Both techniques are part of a package that measures a second series as Specter and Meltdown should occur, Intel claims.
