We continue our coverage of IDF 2011 today. The second day of IDF began with Mooly Eden, Intel VP and General Manager of the PC Client Group, and his keynote discussion, detailing the current state of the company’s business and Ultrabook plans. Eden also spoke of the adaptability of the PC and the many transformations it has made over the years to meet market demand and dictate new usage models and experiences.
From Ivy Bridge DX11 performance to new power saving LCD technologies, Intel's new Identity Theft Protection suite, Haswell demos and Thunderbolt IO for PCs, Mooly covered a lot of ground as usual.
We spent some time yesterday walking through the Technology Showcase at this year’s IDF, and as you may expect much of the buzz surrounds Sandy Bridge-E, its companion X79 chipset, and Ultrabooks. We stopped off to see what MSI, Kingston and Gigabyte specifically had on display on the show floor and also snapped off a few pictures of an Asus Ultrabook that was being shown off during one of our briefings.
Since not everyone is able to make it to IDF 2011, we are bringing it to you. While we're at the Intel Developer Forum we had the chance to sit down with GIGABYTE. The had a couple of their Intel X79 on display for all to see. The motherboards that GIGABYTE had on display ranged from mild to wild! What were they showing off at IDF 2011? Read on to find out!
Intel's new thin-and-light notebooks could change the mobile computing if things go as Intel has planned. The new Ultrabook segment is being shown in force at IDF 2011 and we managed to spend some time with an ASUS UX21 Ultrabook that was lightweight and razor thin. Read on to see how it looks and if these notebooks are going to be worth waiting for!
