The Future Of Intel Processors

Updated on November 29, 2009

The year 2010 will mark an enormous transformation for the entire computer micro processing industry. The galaxy of computing is currently expanding well beyond the limits of the conventional paradigm of the PC to a place where it becomes integrated with virtually every facet of human existence.

With the fading away of AMD as a legitimate competitor, Intel effectively has now become a monopoly. Much to the chagrin of Green Team enthusiasts and fanbois it has to be logically concluded that the progress in the technological investment of resources and engineering intellect will now and for the next few years at least, all originate from Intel Corporation. This process was started by the steep downward spiral in AMD's fortunes caused by former CEO and soon to be insider trading jailbird Dr. Hector Ruiz, as he left AMD a mere shadow of its former self.

This transformation, which is undoubtedly going to be led by Intel, has significant implications to all computer users and even the individuals who utilize computers only peripherally: such as the users of mobile devices or other forms of non-specific PC desktop or laptop applications. Intel architectures have been expanding their scope to various aspects of technological life in the 21st Century beyond the conventional PC desktop and laptop paradigm. This is a spectrum of devices that are based on computing but are not necessarily computers: From the high-end servers to the common household and office personal computers to the devices which can effectively be called consumer electronics and not computers, including handhelds.

Intel has been moving forward in integrating its technology into this wide range of devices. The goal is to provide a consistent personal computing paradigm across the wide range of devices so that the learning curve for each new device becomes considerably flatter. It would be a great benefit for someone to be able to pick up anything from a cellular phone all the way to a quad-core laptop and be able to use them both in a similar fashion with a roughly consistent graphical user interface. That convergence of interfaces is coming and it very well may arrive in the year 2010 or 2011.

Businesses demand that they have access to an infrastructure that is not only comprehensive and secure but also affordable for all their data and their fixed and mobile devices. The construction of these devices is just one aspect of technological development, but making them work and meshing them all together is a very different situation. Intel likes to call this process a continuum. By continuum they intend the functionality of all of these devices: mobile and fixed devices operating together seamlessly in a fashion that is easily transported by the operator from one device to another device with a minimum of retraining.

There are many different computing devices on the market right now and in order to build an ecosystem of familiar usage models and consistent applications across all these platforms is a daunting task. The redefinition of the industry's playing field in between one company and the next, and one industry and the next, will expand the borders of what is feasible within the galaxy of computing.
