IDF Day One
Posted on: 09/28/2006 02:06 PM

Tech Report's Scott "Dr. Damage" Wasson reported from IDF yesterday, and his report included some good info on quad-core, as well as a bit of insight into Intel's multi-core future.
In fact, Intel appears to be looking beyond simply adding additional x86 execution cores to future chips in order to take advatange of the ever-ballooning transistor budgets made possible by Moore's Law. One of the most dramatic (and yet oddly underplayed) facets of the opening IDF keynotes was the revelation of a new prototype chip with a tremendous amount of parallel floating-point computing power. Otellini mentioned the chip in his speech, but left it to CTO Justin Rattner to fill in the details.
