Tomorrow Intel will host its Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco and it's expected that we're going to learn a lot more this week about the firm's new technologies:
Intel is also expected to reveal more details of its Penryn CPU, 45nm Hi-k silicon technology and new WiMAX applications along with the introduction of the associated Montevina notebook platform, according to sources at Taiwan PC makers.

During the three-day event, Intel will also highlight Nehalem CPUs slated for the second half of 2008 and provide more details of its new Menlow UMPC (ultra-mobile PC) platform.

Since Menlow is expected to deliver better performance than the current McCaslin-based UMPCs, consumers have been adopting a wait-and-see attitude toward the launch of Menlow, the sources indicated.

The next-generation Moorestown UMPC platform could also be discussed during the forum, but Intel is unlikely to reveal essential details at this time, the sources speculated.
