This week Intel will host the Spring Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in San Francisco and TG Daily has already compiled an article with some of the new products we can expect. They also state this IDF is also about regaining trust from hardware and software developers as well as analysts into the chip giant's products.
Is NGMA the architecture Intel should have introduced five years ago?
NGMA stands for Next Generation Micro Architecture, a new processor architecture that will surface first in the Merom (mobile), Conroe (desktop) and Woodcrest (volume and performance server) processors later this year. The core of NGMA is much closer to the technology of the Pentium III than to the Pentium 4, which is responsible for much of the trouble Intel is going through today. Simply speaking, we are looking at a processor design that is based on the Pentium III-related Pentium M foundation and some Pentium 4 extensions.
