Pictures From Intel's Presentation on Future CPUs

For the computing enthusiast, the Intel Developer Forum is pretty exciting. With sneak peeks and details given on what's coming down the pipe, there's a lot for the chip fan at IDF.

Sadly, not everyone can attend IDF (not even some of us due to time constraints), but thanks to the German side of Tom's Hardware, we've snapped some photos from the presentations for your enjoyment.

    njkid3what no octo core
    At some point, more cores on a die will become too much of a cliche. In 50 years, it would be horrible to think that the advertisements would read, "OMG, 1337 h4ckr0z, we have 502,405 cores on a single die!. Beat that, bitches!". Of course, in 50 years, I expect us to be on to quantum-based computing, DNA computing, and other methods that are not even close to being dreamed up.

    That is funny, I don't think I will see a 502,405 core processor in my life time.

    So speaking in reality, I would like to see an octo core or a 16 and 32 processor on the road map, with mother boards that support 48 and 96gb of ram, that only makes sense.

    Maybe my grandkids, kids will see an 100,000 core cpu.

    Well, you never know, in the last 10 or so years computers have taken some quantum leaps.

  • Sooner or later, computers will start designing themselves.

    Engineers will just input the desired specifications nd the computers will come up with the design.

    But the scary part of that is how much control will humanity retain over the actions of future computers, especially those designed for the military.

    i'm dreaming of the day that all manufacturing companies bind together , like intel, AMD/ATI, Nvidia, IBM, and so on , to create ONE MEGA ARCHITECTURE that will defy all laws of physics and chemistry !!!

    BEHOLD THE BRINGER OF LIGHT !!!!!!
