Intel continue to lead processor gameBy Staff Writer 8 January 2010 | Categories: news
Intel reaffirmed its position as the world’s leading developer of processors yesterday at CES 2010. Announcing the release of more than 25 new Intel Core processors, the company pulled out all the stops to stay ahead of the competition in 2010.
Intel CEO Paul Otellini’s biggest announcement at the show concerned the release of the world’s first full volume production 32 nm (32 billionths of a meter) processors. The development is significant as it allows for greater performance and energy efficiency from chips, which continues to keep Moore's Law relevant.
The technologies behind the chips that were announced highlight Intel’s picture of a future that includes chips embedded in more objects than just computers – with the potential for many more consumer products to utilise the computing power currently seen in PCs. "Computing is no longer confined to your computer – it's everywhere," Otellini said during his CES keynote speech. "Advances in connectivity, intuitive user interfaces, immersive content and computer chip performance have allowed computing to move into new areas. Computing moving into all manner of devices and experiences all around us improves our personal productivity and enjoyment."
CEO Otellini’s presentation also included the world’s first demonstration of the LG GW990 smartphone which utilises Intel's next-generation platform for smartphones, Moorestown. The rather large GW990, with its 4.8" display, will apparently offer benefits like better HD video playback thanks to Intel’s processor.
