Intel at Computex 2011

Computex, one of the world’s largest computex exhibtions, started at a high note this week with Intel Executive Vice President Sean Maloney delivering the opening keynote. This was the first speech that Sean delivered sincereturning from medical leave. The audience was clearly very excited to see him back in Taiwan, with the keynote hall that seats 2,000 quickly filing up to capacity.

During the keynote, Sean covered a wide range of cool technologies that Intel is working on to provide consumers in the near future – from smartphones, tablets, netbooks to enabling the Cloud which will rapidly expand with the growing number of mobile devices connecting to the Internet.

One of the important new developments that Sean talked about was the introduction of the “Ultrabook”, an emerging new breed of no-compromise computers, which will increasingly combine the best-in-class performance, improved responsiveness and security in thin, elegant form factors.

To top this, Sean was even ‘shrunk’ to a nanometer level while explaining to the audience how the latest the development of the latest 22nm silicon technology translates into benefits for consumer. Click here to watch the full keynote if you couldn’t make it to Taiwan.

Other highlights of Sean’s keynote include Michael Angiulo, Microsoft’s corporate vice president of Windows planning for Hardware & PC Ecosystem, who joined Sean on stage to discuss the latest developments of Windows 7 on Intel Technology, and Jonney Shih, Chairman of ASUS showcased the company’s first sleek Ultrabook – the ASUS UX21.

Stay tuned for more updates from Computex in the next couple of days!

    I already asked Intel and of course I didn’t get an answer, I was just told that it was an astute observation and something we’ll have to talk about at a later point in time. I suspect this is a statement about the future of the OS space in mobile computing but I’m not entirely sure what Intel views will be different come 2013. Microsoft will obviously support ARM in Windows 8, but what will Intel support with Haswell that it didn’t before? What do you all think?

    @Sehar, thanks for your comment. To answer your question, you can expect that future Intel Core processors including Haswell will support a variety of leading operating systems, including Windows.
