Last week was hectic not only due to Easter Bunny invading but also because all around Taipei, Taiwan, were those who were at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF)
John Antone, Asia Pacific sales manager. made it clear that "it?s time Taiwanese manufacturers moved away from hot CPUs, running at multi-Gigahertz clock speeds, to the more computationally and power efficient designs developed in Israel that debuted in Intel?s Centrino notebook range."
Intel knows Asia is a manufacturing Giant they need, and that the developers need the power to wattage ratio that the new range offers. Intel desire to cut off the challanges not just from AMD, but listed ATI and Nvidia as other competitors that Intel would be adressing with the new Merom (mobile), Woodcrest (server) and Conroe (desktop) CPUs, all of which should be in manufacturers hands this year.
SO forget the Big boxes. of yesteryear, the new fashions are lighter, smaller, cooler more energy efficient.. oh yes and faster too.
Looks like the megahertz wars are finally over.
Now all we need is a way to compare chip speeds that any user can understand. But thats probably too hard for even Intel's new mantra to provide.
