Real magic added to Intel’s 13th generation processors

Intel has added a very interesting technology to the next generation of processors. Computers and laptops equipped with these chips will be able to literally feel the presence of their owner nearby, even if he does not have any gadgets with him that could give out his presence using Bluetooth or any sensors.

The 13th generation Intel processors (aka Raptor Lake) will support Wi-Fi Proximity Sensing (aka Wi-Fi Sensing), which is only boring in name, but actually does amazing things. When you leave the computer, it automatically goes into sleep mode, and when you come back, it turns on again. If a password is not set in the system, you will not have to enter it, and if the computer is password-protected or protected in some other way (with a finger or face scan), you need to confirm your identity

What is the secret of this magic? Wi-Fi Sensing uses the Wi-Fi module to determine if a person is near the computer. This happens by measuring the intensity of the passage of waves from the router to the modem and vice versa. Dolphins are capable of something similar.

Raptor Lake processors will require a motherboard with a Z790, H770 or B760 chipset, and the manufacturers of these boards do not have to provide support for Wi-Fi Sensing themselves, since the processing of the necessary data is provided by the processor itself. Also, you do not need to change the Wi-Fi adapter in your computer or router, Wi-Fi Sensing will work with existing equipment.
