Chief executive Paul Otellini will kick off the event on Tuesday morning, and will be followed by presentations from chief technology officer Justin Rattner.
Intel gave a first public demonstration of the quad-core Kentsfield desktop processor at the previous IDF in March 2006. A server version of the chip is being developed under the Clovertown codename.
The chips bundle two dual-core processors onto a single die. As a result the cores will not be able to share a single cache which could impact performance.
The next-generation processors are expected to feature a cache that is shared between all processor cores.
Rumours also suggest that Intel could unveil an initiative to integrate a graphics process directly onto its CPUs.
The Intel Developer Forum will be an important opportunity for the chip giant to polish its image as a leader in the high-tech landscape.
Intel has suffered from a drop in market share and revenues in recent quarters as a result of increasing competition from AMD.
The firm is in the process of laying off about 10,500 of its employees, and has reshuffled its top management and spun off divisions that did not contribute to the company's microprocessor business.
