Intel set to announce new chip architecture

Intel Corp yesterday said its chief executive Paul Otellini would unveil a new semiconductor architecture later this month at a company conference in San Francisco.

Rob Chapman, general manager of Intel Developer Forum, would not divulge details about the new architecture, which he said had not previously been discussed by the company and was only being referred to as next-generation.

It would support *T technology, such as virtualization, manageability and security, he said.

New processors built on the architecture would start to appear by the second half of 2006, Chapman said. And the architecture would enable new form factors for both processors and systems, he said.

Otellini is expected to talk up the architecture during his August 23 keynote. The CEO, who took Intel’s reins earlier this year, also would detail mobile and enterprise multi-core product roadmaps, Chapman said.

Additionally, Intel would give updates on its 2006 Professional Business Platform strategy and progress on its goal to help enable an 8-hour battery life in mobile machines by 2008. On average, mobile computers today get about just half that battery life, said spokesperson Barbara Grimes.

We expect that to go up to about five hours with the Napa generation, which will be introduced in early 2006, she said.

Also, the Open InfiniBand Alliance and InfiniBand Trade Associate as expected to be part of the IDF program. They mark the first SIGs at IDF, but Chapman said Intel hopes to have more SIG presence at upcoming IDFs.
