    [news=http://img97.imageshack.us/img97/8173/intel1ne.gif]This morning, Intel's CEO, Paul Otellini, has been talking about the next generation of Intel hardware and what it's going to be doing to give users more performance over the next year.

    One thing it's important to have is an understand of how Intel has reorganised
    itself internally. Centrino has given them a great deal of success - for the first time, mobile processor shipments have exceeded desktop shipments in the US this year. What Intel has seen is that it is better to work on platforms as a whole rather than just the processors, and it is planning to take that approach on the desktop.

    A new performance metric - performance per watt

    It's clear that the way we measure performance on the desktop is different from how we measure it on mobiles. On desktop, it's all about raw processing power -
    in the mobile, it's all about how much performance you can get whilst also keeping power drain down.

    Intel believes that it's time to start measuring performance by the same metric - the amount of performance a chip has per watt of energy it produces. As an example - the Pentium M would be a high performance per watt product, whilst something like Prescott would be incredibly low.

    It's this strategy that has led Intel to create brand new processors for the desktop based on multi-cores. These chips will sport an entirely new architecture.

    Update :

    AMD is fighting the power. Even with Intel Corp.'s new focus on delivering higher processor performance per watt of energy, unveiled here at its fall Intel Developer Forum, Advanced Micro Devices Inc. maintains that its Opteron server chips consume less juice than its rival Intel's Xeon server chips, either available now or coming in the near future.

    AMD executives camped out at atop the Westin St. Francis hotel only a few blocks from Moscone Center West, where the developer forum took place, argued that because Opterons use less power, servers based on them will cost businesses less money to run. Because they use less electricity, Opteron servers also run cooler and thus require less active cooling and can also be fit more tightly together in server racks, reducing the amount of infrastructure required to run them, an AMD executive said.


    What took AMD so long ?
