Intel to announce processor architecture at IDF

Paul Ottelini, Intel's chief executive officer, is expected to announce an architecture for microprocessors during a keynote speech on Aug. 23 at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, according to reports.

Otellini will announce Intel's "next-generation architecture," due to arrive in the second half of 2006, according to a Digit report which referenced Rob Chapman, general manager of the IDF exhibition and conference, as its source.

Earlier this year, Otellini announced that Merom, Conroe and Woodcrest were the code names for Intel's next generation of so-called multi-core processors slated for introduction in late 2006, the report said.

The move would appear to be replacement for Intel's Netburst architecture, the report said. Whereas Netburst was designed to allow the increase of clock frequency for a uniprocessor design, the next-generation architecture is expected to allow Intel to move smoothly up from two-way parallel processing, to highly parallel processing, as it moves through different manufacturing process nodes.

Justin Rattner, head of Intel Labs, is set to close the conference with a discussion of Intel's 2015 Platform Initiative, an effort to develop self-managing and self-healing systems, the report quoted Chapman as saying.
