The president and the executive director of Intel on operations has told about new tendencies and processing techniques on which further development of the IT industry will be grounded, from new processors with several kernels to innovative platforms.
«Convergence became a reality, – has underlined Otellini. – Branch standards and mass production of hardware components have given the chance usages of processing techniques bolshemu to quantity of people. Digital processing techniques penetrate into the telecommunication industry and in show business, there are new models of usage, both the companies and private persons use new advantages of information technologies». It is accompanied by prompt growth of number of Internet users all over the world, that iljustriruet the Photo 6.

However application of modern digital processing techniques in different branches means, that it is necessary to add simple computational capability with possibility of satisfaction of wider set of requirements and requirements of users. All it demands appropriate perfection of the architecture of multimedia platforms and completing computing systems. Besides, further development of semiconducting and computer processing techniques is necessary. History of their development illustrates the Photo 7.

Continuing to increase productivity of processors, Intel corporation also is engaged in developments on purpose to raise efficiency of usage of processors and to give to PC users of advantage of multitasking, safety, dependability, controllability and a wireless communication.
Upgrade of all main sets of processors by models with several kernels becomes the central component of the new strategy of corporation of Intel. In due course processors with several kernels will allow to improve considerably productivity of user interface, protection against viruses and risks of safety, and also to raise general efficiency and productivity of operation.
«Three years ago at the Forum of Intel for implementators we said, that Intel corporation will create fundamental processing techniques and the new possibilities of the integrated chips providing new possibilities and functionality of computer systems, – has told Otellini. – Processing technique Hyper-Threading and processing technique of Intel Centrino for transportable PCs became the first examples such, oriented to the user, the approach. Now we plan to continue operation in this direction and to insert processors with several kernels in our production».
Processing technique Hyper-Threading became the important step on path to processors with several kernels. After its release software developers began to create more applications with support of parallel processing of streams. As a result today many programmers, and also the majority of existing development tools are ready to use possibilities of processors with several kernels.
«The new processing technique of corporation of Intel not simply allows to place two kernels on one wafer, – has noticed Otellini. – the Processing technique of processors with several kernels will allow implementators to use available resources and tools to give to end users new advantages».
As an example of the future processor of Intel with several kernels Otellini has shown the working processor of a new generation of the set of Intel Itanium under code name Montecito. Processor Montecito differs not only presence of two kernels, but also that in it contains more than 1,7 billion transistors and 24 Mb of the built in cache memory. Montecito – only one of several projects of processors with several kernels for notebooks, desktop PCs and servers which Intel corporation has presented at the Forum of Intel for implementators. It is necessary to add, that, despite the constant criticism of the known Law of Moore, its position continue to operate, to what testify not only new processors of corporation of Intel, but also all evolution of computer processing techniques (the Photo 8).

One of these new processing techniques will be included in the future chipsets to simplify handle of an IT infrastructure for IT managers. The processing technique of Intel Active Management (IAMT) is developed for support of handle by park of the PC using various platforms - from pocket communication arrangements to servers. It will save IT managers of a situation when about 80 percent of the IT budget are spent for handle instead of development and implantation of innovative solutions for rise of efficiency and efficiency of operation of users.
Besides new functionality, Intel corporation plans to include in the future processors and chipsets of system logic processing technique of a virtualization (it is known under code name Vanderpool, or VT) which will allow to start simultaneously on the computer some operating systems, considerably raising flexibility and dependability of maintenance of systems. Besides, such future processing techniques of safety as LaGrande (LT), will help to protect the corporate and private information from unauthorized access and destroying program attacks, and new multimedia processing techniques will allow to cut down expenses and will open new possibilities for the house and office.
Razitie the ideas sounded by Floor Otellini (Paul Otellini), the president and the executive director of Intel on operations has found reflexion in the subsequent reports of heads and leading experts not only Intel corporations, but also other corporations which representatives have taken part in operation the Forum. It was possible to get acquainted with results of researches and the newest developments of these corporations at the exhibition of processing techniques led within the limits of led actions IDF.
