Innovator Of The Year: Intel
This year's Innovator of the Year, because of the breadth and scope of what it has shown, is Intel.
After launching the Intel Modular Server -- one of the most unique servers we have ever seen -- into the channel, Intel continued to show innovation by launching the Atom processor for micro- and mobile-computing. Intel ends the year with a bang by showing us their Nehalem processor -- one of the most powerful pieces of technology we've ever seen. Along the way, its quad-core processors have helped to unlock value in Windows Vista and provide a roadmap for the channel's growth on the value chain.
