Intel To Outline Future Processors At 'Hot Chips' Conference

Intel plans to provide details of upcoming processors at next month's Hot Chips conference, which also is slated to include presentations on the Cell processor by IBM and Toshiba.

However the main themes of the conference, configurability and multiprocessing are also set to provide opportunities for smaller companies and startups to discuss their work.

Intel engineers are expected to present five papers at the conference including presentations of “Magpie”, described as a real-time “milliflow aggregation processor”, together with “Paxville” a Xeon-based multiprocessor and “Twincastle” a chipset for servers in support of multiprocessors. The company is also going to present on “Foxton”, Intel&'s approach to dynamically optimized power saving.

Among the startup companies invited to present at Hot Chips are Luxtera Inc. (Carlsbad, Calif.), a fabless semiconductor company that claimed in March that it had devised a 10-gigabit-per-second optical modulation device, based on a standard CMOS fabrication process. Robert Mykland of Ascenium Inc. (Soquel, Calif.) is due to present on Acenium which is described as a “continuously reconfigurable architecture”.

A keynote form David Kirk, chief scientist at NVidia Corp. will ask the question, “Do we have more parallelism than we can handle?” As NVidia is a licensor of a four-way multiprocessor from ARM Holdings plc, Kirk&'s answer is likely to be interesting.

The Hot Chips conference is due to take place Aug. 14 to 16 at Stanford University. Further details could be found here when this story was first posted.
