Tom’s Hardware Guide has uncovered some interesting news about Intel’s plans for their future technologies.
According to the article, Intel plans on delivering “almost 20 new processor designs within the next eight quarters; all for the sole purpose of dominating the desktop, mobile and enterprise segments.”
While Intel will be focusing mostly on 45 nm for now, they assert that their 65nm buisness is still thriving. While analysts may be skeptical at the latter piece of information, Tom’s research indicates that Intel’s 65 nm manufacturing is healthy enough to unroll more processor designs over the next two years than ever before.
“There will be lots of dual cores, quad cores and even the first eight core CPUs are outlined clearly.”
Tom’s went on to say that despite the fact that this information is still confidential, and likely to change over time, they felt that Intel is working on an excellent product base. They also feel that new CTO Justin Rattner will bring a much needed spark to the company’s technology image.
If this is true, it will come not a moment too soon. Intel’s nearest competitor, AMD, is rapidly gaining ground on the processor giant.
