INTEL DEVELOPER FORUM, San Francisco, Sept. 27, 2006 — During his keynote today at the Intel Developer Forum, Pat Gelsinger, Intel senior vice president and general manager of the Digital Enterprise Group, outlined the next stage of the company's multi-core product roadmap and new industry initiatives that offer developers a design platform for innovation and new capabilities for businesses. Gelsinger said that Moore's Law and the accelerated pace of Intel innovation are enabling faster and more reliable and secure networking and computing technologies, including PCs that boast a future 'system defense' technology.
Demonstrating how the company capitalizes on Moore's Law, Intel previewed its forthcoming Quad-Core IntelÂ® XeonÂ® processor 5300 series — products with four processors inside — for workstations and servers, and the IntelÂ® Core™2 Extreme quad-core processor for the enthusiast market segment. Available this year, the products are based on the revolutionary IntelÂ® Core™ microarchitecture and deliver socket compatibility with existing Intel platforms.
The chips will extend technology and performance leadership by delivering up to 50 percent more performance1 within the same power envelope than today's dual-core generation, already well recognized as the world's highest performing processors. Gelsinger also reiterated that Intel will deliver a power-thrifty 50 watt quad-core server processor next year.
