Intel has delivered a sneak preview of the innovations and products expected at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in San Francisco next week.
The company is continuing to push Moore's Law, the theory propounded by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore which states that the transistor count on an integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years, despite some saying that chip development is approaching its physical limits.
"Contrary to speculation that Moore's Law is slowing down or potentially dying, we are here to demonstrate that it's alive and well," said Steve Smith, vice president of Intel. "Integration gives you a smaller, better, faster and more mobile compute platform."
Smith explained that the focus of this year's show is integration, and how Intel is "driving PC capabilities into a broad range of new and innovative products, from handhelds to consumer electronics to high-end servers".
This is IDF's 12th year and the company will be showcasing a host of innovations across a wide range of technologies, including 'Westmere', the codename for its latest 32nm chips due out later this year.
There will also be news regarding Intel's expansion of its Nehalem architecture from the recently announced Core i5 range, to the netbook and mobile markets.
The firm is set to deliver updates on its solid state drives, controller chips, system-on-chip systems for embedded and consumer electronic products, and its next-generation 'Larabee' graphics chipset.
IDF will also see a bigger push into the netbook and mobile internet device markets, both in terms of software, with improvements to Intel's Moblin open-source operating system, and hardware, with new chipsets, architectures and updates to the Atom range of processors.
The opening keynote will be delivered by Intel chief executive Paul Otellini, alongside senior vice president Pat Gelsinger, who announced today that he is leaving Intel after 30 years to join storage firm EMC.
