Intel’s Dadi (David) Perlmutter, General Manager Intel Architecture Group and Chief Product Officer, opened up the 2012 Intel Developers Forum by reflecting back on the significance of this day, the eleventh anniversary of the attacks on 9/11. Today, however, also marks the fifteenth anniversary of IDF, so Dadi ultimately moved on to a quick overview of the many advances and innovations that have taken place at Intel since the event began in 1997. Perlmutter showed off a Medfield SoC alongside a Xeon Phi, along with a number of Intel Atom and Core powered Windows 8 tablets and Ultrabooks,... Read more...
Ahead of this week's IDF, Intel's annual Developer's Forum, the company let an interesting number slip through the cracks: 10W. With all of the leaks we've seen so far, along with information Intel itself has revealed, it's clear that the company has been focusing like never before on power efficiency with its Haswell microarchitecture. "10W" highlights that well. As Intel's TDP ratings include the GPU, that number becomes all the more impressive. Whereas Ivy Bridge was an evolutionary update to Sandy Bridge, Haswell has been built from the ground-up, as part of Intel's "Tock" phase. The ultimate... Read more...
Intel's Developer Forum (IDF) starts on Tuesday, and the chip manufacturer is expected to discuss its Ivy Bridge refresh, Haswell, talk about its upcoming 32nm tablet platform, Clover Trail, and possibly share a few details on its 22nm Atom SOC's. Performance per watt is going to be a major focus at IDF this year; Haswell is rumored to be capable of idling below 10W. Intel always uses IDF as a demonstration platform and roadmap update, but it's particularly important this year, when competing foundries have struggled with 28nm and Intel itself just cut its Q3 guidance. Several of Intel's rivals... Read more...

Did you think Intel would squander its final day at IDF sitting on its thumbs and letting the momentum from previous announcements close out the event? Pshaw! Rather than do that, Intel brought up a number of topics today, including plans to take computing to the extreme, multi-core's many uses, and an interesting new DRAM concept called Hybrid Memory Cube. Let's start with the multi-core talk. Lest anyone thing single-core is long for this world, Intel came out and said what we already know, which is "the practice of building more than one processing engine into a single chip has become the accepted...

New SSD? From Intel? Of course! With IDF ongoing this week, it marked the perfect chance for Intel to reveal something other than Ivy Bridge, Haswell and their intentions to work closely to optimize future Atom CPUs for use with Android. And so, it was. The Intel SSD 710 series was just unveiled, an enterprise-grade Multi-Level Cell (MLC) SATA SSD featuring high endurance, performance and reliability. It uses compute-quality 25nm MLC NAND flash memory in 100GB, 200GB and 300GB capacities, and it promises Single-Level Cell (SLC) SSD endurance with MLC value for optimal data center storage. Intel's... Read more...
The second day of IDF began with Mooly Eden, Intel VP and General Manager of the PC Client Group, and his keynote discussion, detailing the current state of the company’s business and Ultrabook plans. Eden also spoke of the adaptability of the PC and the many transformations it has made over the years to meet market demand and dictate new usage models and experiences. From Ivy Bridge DX11 performance to new power saving LCD technologies, Intel's new Identity Theft Protection suite, Haswell demos and Thunderbolt IO for PCs, Mooly covered a lot of ground as usual....

We spent some time yesterday walking through the Technology Showcase at this year’s IDF, and as you may expect much of the buzz surrounds Sandy Bridge-E, its companion X79 chipset, and Ultrabooks. We stopped off to see what MSI, Kingston and Gigabyte specifically had on display on the show floor and also snapped off a few pictures of an Asus Ultrabook that was being shown off during one of our briefings.    Asus UX21 Ultrabook, all 2.4 pounds of it... First up we have some shots of the Asus UX21 Ultrabook. The all-aluminum Asus UX21 is just 0.66″ thick at its thickest... Read more...
As is traditionally the case, Intel’s CEO Paul Otellini opened up the Intel Developer’s Forum with a keynote address in the theater at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The focus of Otellini’s talk was the “future of computing” and how Intel plans to capitalize on current trends and growth in the mobile device market. Otellini’s opinion is that we are still in the early stages in this evolution of computing and moving forward, no one device will be at the center of the computing experience.  But of course, Intel plans to capitalize on all of them....

There's a lot going on at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) this year, just as there is every year, and not all of it has to do with processors. Making a splash of its own, DisplayLink debuted the world's first SuperSpeed USB 3.0 graphics adapter built around the company's DL-3500 chip. It's built by Winstars and is appropriately called the Winstars SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to HDMI adapter. "Winstars is set to deliver a very well-timed connectivity solution that builds on the inherent performance benefits of SuperSpeed USB 3.0," said Dennis Crespo, DisplayLink executive vice president of marketing and...

Just before wandering into Paul Otellini’s opening keynote at the Intel Intel Developers Forum going on in San Francisco, we spotted some new hardware on display in one of the demo areas we thought you’d all like to see. If you remember a few weeks back, rumors began to spread that both Intel and AMD would be offering self-contained liquid-cooling solutions with their upcoming high-end processors. Well, as these pictures show, Intel is most definitely on-track to offer a liquid-cooling solution. Oh, and yes, that’s an X79 motherboard right next to it...   ... Read more...
