But what had everyone talking was the new architecture itself, code-named Sandy Bridge, which Intel unveiled at IDF.
"Sandy Bridge will revolutionize PCs again," Otellini said of Intel's second-generation core processor, adding that a single Sandy Bridge-based chip would possess "all the critical capabilities for computing."
These capabilities include controlled performance and power efficiency, as well as an overall improved visual experience, with 3D controller capability, 3D Blu-Ray graphics, and gesture technology making use of body language and facial expression.
Intel's belief is that with an increasingly interactive future of computing, customers will want to interact with computers the way they do with people.
"We're becoming a solutions provider," Otellini told IDF attendees. "We're not just offering the best silicon for servers, but a full customized computing stack for our customers."
