Intel CEO: Silicon Advances Usher in New Era of Energy Efficient Performance

On innovation, Otellini challenged the computing and consumer electronics industry to do more, to take advantage of the energy-efficient performance capabilities of Core2 Duo processors. To do this, Otellini announced the Intel® Core2 Processor Challenge, a contest that will award up to $1 million in prizes to the PC designer or manufacturer that builds the smallest and most stylish PCs powered by an Intel Core2 Duo processor coupled with Intel® Viiv technology, Intels premium brand for in-home, media-optimized PCs.

New Growth Opportunities

Otellini also summarized the progress the company was seeing on its Intel® Viiv technology and Intel® Centrino mobile technology platforms, and said the next-generation mobile platform codenamed Santa Rosa is on track to ship next year. He said the next big inflection point for the industry is clearly broadband to go or carrying broadband Internet with you.

In this regard Intel is making significant progress with its WiMAX effort, he said, bolstered by the recent news that Sprint and Clearwire would deploy the technology. The company is also working on a new category of PCs known as the ultra-mobile PC, which Otellini said could result in devices with 10 times lower power consumption than todays laptops by 2008.
