Just two hours into the first day of the Intel Developer Forum Intel has already demonstrated and announced more than we have seen from them in the past few months, and for the first time in quite a while, they’ve showed us more than just a higher clock speed CPU.
While there has been very little discussion about chipsets other than throwing out a few names such as Solano, Solano 2, and Camino 2, the main focus of the speeches by Andy Grove and Senior VP Albert Yu has been the upcoming IA-32 architecture found in the Willamette processor and of course Intel’s flagship server platform, the Itanium. For most AnandTech readers, the Willamette is a bigger concern than the Itanium if for any reason at all, because of cost.
