Orange has been in collaboration with Intel, as the amp manufacturer wanted to bring the American corporation’s original Core processor to the OPC. The evolution of this partnership has led to the introduction of the 2nd Generation Core processor to the OPC platform.
The British MI company’s new creation is currently in production equipped with the Core i3 processor, but Intel has decided to use the OPC to demonstrate the upgraded 2nd Generation Core i5 at its CES booth.
Labelled as the world’s fastest guitarist, Orange endorser Tiago Della Vega will be attempting to break his own Guinness World Record at the event. He currently holds the record for playing Nikolai Rimsky Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee at 320 BPM without errors, and he will be aiming to go one step further.
Tiago’s challenge will take place at 12:20 PST (20:20 GMT) on Friday January 7th and will be streamed live on the Orange OPC website here. The CES runs from January 6th to the 9th at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The OPC is a complete guitar amplifier and recording studio workstation combo for musicians and songwriters, giving users the ability to play, record and edit through its various computer capabilities and pre-installed software. It will work straight out of the box with no set-up required.
