Being one of the leading developers of today's silicon technology, Intel Corp. tries to do its best to make people more familiar with the upcoming innovations and further evolution of current technologies. Twice a year Intel holds an event called Intel Development Forum, where the company shows off its latest achievements and shares its plans for the future.
With a worldwide focus, IDF brings together developers, business executives and technology influencers as well as various decision makers to hear and discuss the vision and the latest technologies from Intel and its industry partners.
If you've been asking yourself what the PC will be capable of doing and which technologies will be widespread in the year 2015, choose a web-site and read about Intel Development Forum Spring 2005.
?During this IDF we should be able to learn quite a few interesting things. In his first keynote presentation Intel CEO made a few formal announcements, so that we all know what to expect these days. Among the most interesting things will certainly be the BT virtualization technology, I/O acceleration technology, dual- and multi-core technology that allows using more transistors in cores and then combining many of those cores into a single device, and much more than that,?wrote Anna Filatova, Editor in Chief for .
High-performance processors have always been key products from Intel and it is unlikely to change in the near future.
?Intel has revealed a bit about future plans, saying that they will be at 8 threads (per chip or per core?) by the end of the decade. The other interesting note is with regards to Intel Xeon platforms, more specifically the upcoming Truland 4S platform. Truland 4S supports Intel's dual independent bus architecture, meaning that each CPU in a two socket configuration will have its own 1066MHz FSB, as opposed to the shared 667MHz FSB that they have to contend for right now. The other interesting feature is its quad channel DDR2-400 support to match up with the added FSB bandwidth,?reported Anand Lai Shimpi, Editor in Chief for AnandTech
Intel tries to find new markets for its products and it seems that there is a good possibility that future cars will be Intel Inside ones.
?The final demonstration was a car which was ?kitted out?with cameras instead of mirrors and screens to have feeds from around the car. Made by Chrysler, this car has had some serious modding done to it, something even our own Gordy might blanch at!. The car retails for $55,000 but if you want a Centrino powered one it will cost you $153,000, but for that price they do throw in free software upgrades, a full valet and a tank of gas. The entire car can be controlled via a PDA, James Bond stylee, just don't let the kids log onto it while playing GTA,?claims Hexus.net.
