Interview with an Intel Insider

Posted on Thursday, October 29 2009 @ 04:02:30 CET by

Bright Side of News had an interview with Intel technical PR manager Dan Snyder, you can read it over here. Here's a snip from the article:
BSN*: How do you feel about the future of computing? Do you feel that x86 based microprocessors are the best way going forward? Or do you see Intel moving in another direction in the future?

Dan Snyder: Well, for the foreseeable future we’re obviously very dedicated to x86, to multi-core. We’ve publicly disclosed that we are going to have a six-core, 32 nanometer CPU next year, so that is 2010 for Gulftown. So x86, its more cores, more threads, isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Beyond that, who knows? It’s anyone’s guess. I think what you see with x86 is 64-bit, it’s power efficient, the threading cores and widespread software compatibility. The installed software base is not something to take lightly. The x86 installed software base is hundreds and hundreds of thousands of programs and applications, which is not a small feat. That’s a result of decades with the architecture spawning those applications. I’ve been here fifteen years, never say never but I know that we’ve got a hell of an installed base of x86 software out there.
