If it wasn't directly related to the Core Microarchitecture, it wasn't a big deal at IDF this week. The UMPC, touted back at the Fall IDF in 2005 as a major milestone for mobile computers, got about two minutes in Sean Maloney's keynote; LaGrande, yet another member of the "*T's," as Intel calls its platform technologies such as 64-bit extensions (EMT), virtualization (VT) and active management (AMT), was worth about two sentences in Pat Gelsinger's keynote.More details over at TG Daily.
Perhaps LaGrande, or short LT, was kept fairly quiet since any security technology is not a sexy topic to discuss in public. But clearly, LT was undersold given its long development history and its implications for computer users.
Intel LaGrande not for desktop PCs
