Intel Innovation 2021 Event: The 10 Biggest Announcements To Know
Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger and other executives laid out the chipmaker’s new ‘software-first’ strategy with a series of announcements and disclosures spanning much of the company’s portfolio of silicon products at the inaugural Intel Innovation event in late October.
Intel Pledges It Will Achieve Zettascale Computing by 2027
Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger made a bold pledge in the opening keynote of Intel Innovation: the chipmaker will achieve zettascale computing by 2027. That means the company believes it will be capable of powering a system by that year that can perform one zettaflop, which is equal to one thousand exaflops or one sextillion floating point operations per second. It’s a tall order, given that the first two U.S. supercomputers capable of performing at least an exaflop are expected to go online in the next few months. But Gelsinger said Intel is working on a variety of new innovations, including new transistor technologies like RibbonFET and new lithography techniques like EUV. “Today we are predicting that we will maintain or even go faster than Moore‘s law for the next decade,” he said.
