Sean Maloney, Senior Vice President of Intel gave the presentation.
He first started with a quick history of Intel, where he started working back in the 286 days.
Sean showed a graph showing that these last years, Intel had shipped
more Mips than all the previous years combined
For Sean, the challenges of the internet is providing connectivity in more and more places, but then you hit the problem of sensory overload. He gave Google as an example of a newer search engine and we got a demo of it. Goggle has an option to find the page that is most relevant to your search, instead of showing 1000 hits or more
Another funny thing is that Mandrake demoed Enlightenment and Xinerama, which are really cool ways of using that spare CPU you might have, or a good reason to buy more CPUs, or a multi-CPU system. I wonder why Intel wanted to demo this?
Andy Grove then came over to talk:
According to him, 4% of the 2005 demand is currently deployed, and that's a great opportunity for intel and their new architecture, IA-64.
