Kicking off this morning is Intel’s annual technology conference, Innovation. The second year of the revived show once again has Intel’s CEO Pat Gelsinger leading things off, with what’s scheduled to be a 90 minute keynote.
Intel has four major themes for this year’s show:
Accelerating the AI Era
Transformative Innovation for the Future of Computing
Hype vs. Reality: Bringing Modern Applications to Market Faster (Edge to Cloud)
Building and Scaling Industry-Leading Next-Generation Systems and Platforms
Expect to see AI everywhere – both in regards to silicon and promotional efforts. AI is the golden goose of the tech industry at the moment, and everyone is either making massive profits off of AI harfdware (NVIDIA), or wants to be (more or less everyone else, including Intel).
Meanwhile, on the product front, this is the year that Intel’s Meteor Lake client platform is scheduled to launch. The first Intel CPU built on their EUV-enabled Intel 4 process, Meteor Lake is also Intel’s first disaggregated CPU, breaking up what would be a monolithic CPU into several chiplets. Coupled with a new VPU/NPU for AI, Meteor Lake will be a chip of several firsts for Intel when it arrives.
The live blog will start with the opening keynote from Intel Innovation at 8:30am PT / 15:30 UTC / 17:30 CEST. So please join us for what should be an informative keynote.
