Intel will be talking about the next steps in virtualization technology at the IDF, called VT2 and VT3.
Intel announced VT over a year ago and released the specs about 6 months ago. Not to be outdone, AMD announced Pacifica, which should be out early next year. Now Intel is talking about the next generation shortly before the first one is out, which means AMD will follow with Pacifica2 before Pacifica the elder hits the market. Before you conclude that this is all a marketing game, just remember, there is a substantial amount of good tech here, and VT2 will do a lot of good for VMM developers..
