Intel, the chip maker, has unveiled its future strategy for its annual developer conference in the presence of invited journalists from around the world, including COUNTRY. Besides meaning a change of course, anticipated in Barcelona Mobile World Congress in 2012 by Paul Otellini, then head of the company, has served to make its new CEO, Brian Krzanich, had its first public meeting.
The stakes are clear, low consumption and high level of data management. Krzanich was presented as a transcendental question, following in the wake of the visionares that populate Silicon Valley, insisted that progress will change the course of humanity. “For the first time in the history of modern medicine, computer and technological aspect of health care will be as important as the biological. The more computing power we can offer at a reasonable price, more lives can be saved. ” All a proclamation to tell that the company is working closely with health research centers.
Intel confirms its change of course to bet on multiple platforms. From being tied to Microsoft and Windows computers to get into the world of tablets, either Android or Windows and Apple computers. Also in mobile, although low to medium range.
The attempt to show that there are late to a plot led by Qualcomm andNvidia chip is the presentation of Quark, which aims to anticipate what is done on phones and tablets and go directly to the next technological breakthrough technology that dress, that is placed in the body, beyond smart glasses and watches that connect to mobile. The uses seem more typical of spies that ordinary citizens, it could even be inserted under the skin. Renee James, Intel’s president, acknowledged his lack of leadership in this field with a promise: “We will not miss the next revolution.”
We will not miss the next revolution
According to the CEO these processors will cost less than 70 euros ($ 100), so that will reduce the cost of upcoming smart watches, but also motion sensors, sweating, heart rate and vital signs integrated into clothing.At the end of the year will begin to manufacture, but the first products with these chips will not see the consumer until the end of 2014.
For computers will have to wait less. The news will come before year end with Haswell processors, called to succeed the current Atom, very popular during the explosion of netbooks, those low cost computers and tiny size caused such a furor. Intel’s commitment to lower the price goes, improve the processing capacity and battery life up to 40% more.
Another important development is the Big Trail chip, designed for tablets and want to be a competition to system chips designed with the British ARM architecture, working with leaders Apple and Qualcomm. The new processors also fit Android and Windows RT.
Intel looks to the future in small, wearable, but does not forget its origins, computers. The performance will begin to see tablets when Windows 8.1 in different sizes for less than 300 euros. That will be the acid test, the real experimentation beyond futuristic. Two hours after filing the actions of veteran Santa Clara firm rose slightly, to 0.40%, in bags.
For two days, the Moscone Center in San Francisco, the same place where Apple and Google make their annual meetings, Intel teach developers how to get the most out of their chips, as well as a selection of devices and work with news cited by managers.
