Intel's Fall 2007 Developer Forum started today in San
Francisco at Moscone Center West, and there is already a number of
exciting happenings to report on. We will have more formal articles to
report on shortly, but in this article we've attached several
photographs taken so far today. Among the happenings were the Nehalem
demonstration, 32nm talk, and also Gordon Moore was on stage for an hour
talking about various topics. Gordon Moore had talked about Moore's Law
coming to a likely end in the next 10 to 15 years, pico bucks, language
recognition in computing, and even his fishing trips. Later in the day a
new Sun workstation was shown that hasn't yet been released but is Intel
Tigerton compatible and ships with a massive amount of RAM.
Virtualization was also a very hot topic later in the day.
Check it out at Phoronix. As usual this year's fall IDF is brimming with early looks at next-generation Intel architectures. Specifically, Intel President Paul Otellini offered insight into Intel's next-gen multi-core processor, code named Nehalem and much more…
“Nehalem will feature 8-cores on a single die and each core can process two threads, for a total of 16 threads per 8-core CPU. Nehalem processors will be comprised of roughly 731M transistors and feature a number of new technologies.”

Highlights include Penryn, Nehalem, Larrabee, Intel's answer to Fusion and more... We'll be updating the index periodically as developments unfold!
