At the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco on Tuesday, Intel CEO Paul Otellini holds a 300mm wafer with prototype 80-core chips, each of which he said would be able to perform a trillion calculations per second.
Otellini, right, stands with Rackable Systems CEO Tom Barton in front of a 22-inch-tall rack of servers with 80 quad-core “Clovertown” Xeon processors. The chips are scheduled to ship in November.
Anand Chandrasekher, leader of Intel’s new business for low-power processors and ultramobile personal computers, shows an ultramobile PC (UMPC) built by Quanta that uses an Intel processor. The device has a pull-out keyboard, WiMax networking, and a 1024-by-768-pixel, 5-inch screen.
Chandrasekher transfers map information from an ultramobile PC (UMPC) to the built-in computer in a Volskwagen car.
