Intel Developer Forum Day 1 Coverage, The ContinuumWe made our annual pilgrimage to Intel Developer Forum this year and upon arriving in sunny San Francisco, we were greeted with the usual IDF fanfare in a sleek, modernistic environment. Presentations and demonstrations of Intel's latest cutting-edge technologies awaited us in the lobby as we noshed a bit on the continental breakfast buffet, but the glitz of table top demos were not what we really were after.

Intel's Sean Maloney introduced Intel President and CEO, Paul Otellini setting the backdrop for this year's Intel Developer Forum with the big idea behind the company's conference theme: The Continuum. Intel's Continuum is a concept and vision of the future of technology where all devices inter-operate together seamlessly, from desktops, to notebooks, netbooks, and hand-held devices all leveraging standard platform technologies and cross-platform compatibility in software...

32nm ready to go and 22nm only 2 years away... Intel sure can impress.  And I want a test wafer sized CPU!  That's cool.

Don't forget the Larrabee, which also got an introduction today!

"As we've heard previously, Intel's next gen core architectures will not only support integrated graphics but also come outfitted with an AES encryption processing engine to allow for hardware accelerated offload of encryption and decryption algorithms so as not to burden the CPU for these workloads.  Paul and company then served up a live demo of a Sandy Bridge-based notebook processing HD video in a timed demonstration"

Now that's something I'm looking forward to. Your GPU being powerful enough to work somewhat independently of your CPU.


Intel is setting itself to dominate CPU and perhaps GPUs for the next couple of years!

Intel has the resources to mold the market in any way that they see fit. Everyone else is just playing catch up to their lead.

It must be a grand feeling for them.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Good for Intel, not necessarily good for the consumer. Intel needs competition, not only to increase innovation, but to bring down prices for the average user.
