Hewlett-Packard revealed in last October a new large, industrial 3D printer and its Multi Jet Fusion technology. Designed to solve the three big problems of 3D printing: speed, quality and cost, the computer and printer giant claims that their technology is "opening up new possibilities beyond existing technologies to enable a whole new vision for the future of 3D printing."

Today the company has announced another big news at the 2015 International CES in Las Vegas: HP would be working together with Intel to put Intel Core i7 processors in HP's industrial 3D printers.

Dion Weisler, executive vice president, Printing & Personal Systems (PPS), HP joined Brian Krzanich, Chief Executive Officer, Intel, on stage at CES, to share their vision for how this collaboration aims to realize the transformative potential of 3D printing.

"HP's bringing its 30-year print expertise to 3D printing, in the form of 'multi-jet fusion'," said Weisler. "HP Multi Jet Fusion is uniquely designed to resolve fundamental limitations in today's 3D printing technologies with the potential to revolutionize manufacturing."

"In order for 3D printing to reach its full potential, we not only need the most powerful processors, but a technology partner with a shared vision for the industry."

HP claims that the new 3D printing technology is 10 times faster than that in existing 3D printers. The partnership, the technology engineered by HP and powered by Intel has the potential to revolutionize production and offer businesses a new way to prototype and produce goods for customers.

Intel Core i7 processors will be integrated into HP Multi Jet Fusion technology and used in agile product testing with customers as part of HP's Open Customer Collaboration Program throughout 2015. Availability of the end-to-end HP 3D printing system is planned in 2016.

"Our companies share a long history of innovation and a vision to deliver innovative 3D computing experiences that transform the way people interact with and use technology for work and play," said Krzanich. "The combination of Intel architecture with HP's Multi jet Fusion technology will help to accelerate not only the speed of 3D printing but the availability of the technology to consumers and enterprises alike."

HP and Intel have a long history of collaboration. Intel Core i7 Processors power other facets of HP's Blended Reality ecosystem, including Sprout by HP, an immersive computing platform that combines multiple devices.

Hp is acting like 3D Systems, pumping the marketing hype to a stupid level. Who cares if they use Intel Core i7 Processors how is this even news. Additional to this x10 faster claim is getting annoying, showing a baseless number to our face every time they get the spot light. Eos's marketing team will tear these guys claims apart when in 2 years their next gen product becomes available...
