An Intel vice president said today that his company's hardware advances will lead - not follow - software developments. "We learned our lesson in waiting for software. We did this 64-bit thing that was perceived to be a little bit late relative to the market. So we will get the hardware out there as soon as it's ready," Kirk …
You get the kitchen sink....
it's just they've cast it out of platinum.
All these features have an additional cost, so ... what are they? Power consumption, interface complexity and mayhaps countless hours of trying to implement the next best thing.
Itanic was a "brilliant" design that failed to be implemented meaningfully as a platform. This could just be the same feature grab only lashed to x86. /cynic
How effective will the implementation be?
ok, now this might be be being a retard, but stop me when i'm wrong.
These chips aint released. the chips they say they have sent out, these are sample, chips they dont get paid for?
they say they have shipped - "tens of tens of tens of thousands"
well thats at least a million. they reckon they have shipped at least a million chips, for free?
Am i the only one thinking there is some hyperbole at work here??
If Intel had waited for Microsoft to implement the software stack for USB, we still wouldn't have USB.

"It's all well and good to have such capabilities built into chips, but operating systems need to be upgraded to take advantage of them."
That can surely nowadays be done Virtually from Cloud Servers, with Remote Programming and ReProgramming of BIOS to deliver SMARter Enabled and Enabling IDEntities tuned to chip and Fab requirements .....

Or is that A.N.Other Central IntelAIgent Processor Unit's Fab Intellectual Property, if it is not Intel's?

Intel ``leading''? What's the weather forecast for hell?
Notice the ``trusted execution'' reference snuck in there. That's oracle and/or micros~1 calling intel to lock up its processors for their enterprise-y software. Makes sense they sidestep the backlash and lets intel make a good show with their ``leadership'' spin.
Only intel ``leads'' like micros~1 ``follows standards''. In much the same manner that fish follow migrating caribou. I for one don't fall easily for big lies.
It still means you paid for hardware you no longer control. Your abusive software vendor does.
No she hasn't.
Def, It is just that sort of petty negative mindless attitude which makes what is being done in those novel fields so freely shared with you, so much simpler. Others who would be smarter though, would be into look, listen and learn and thus be better ably prepared to reap the reward with that which is being developed and betatested so transparently in these Live Operational Virtual Environments.
Worked so well the last time they did it
Rumors of Andy Grove calling Robert Ballard to find the Itanic aren't true!
I follow the NetBSD port-ia64 list; looking through the archive, it appears the only thing posted there in the past month was a solitary piece of spam. In many respects, it's still a better platform than amd64, however, the expense of hardware and development tools put it out of reach for most people. I wouldn't be surprised if you could cobble together an amd64 machine for less than $150 these days.
All that said, if Intel can figure out a way to remedy some of the dumb things AMD did, the world would be a better place. 64-bit register access from 32-bit mode would be a good start, as would v86 mode in 64-bit operation.
64-bit software? You mean like the Vista 64-bit software I installed
but which didn't run Lord of the Rings or Conan? I even bought a top end graphics card for it for the first time in my life. Or which we can's use to support FIPS compliant VPN? No thanks.
64-bit Linux, runs great for some HPC stuff I try out in smaller (4-6GB) scales on my quad core at home.
OK so few games, but serious computers are for serious use ;-)
List of companies that worked on USB design.
Intel, Compaq, Microsoft, Sony, Digital Equipment Corporation, IBM, Northern Telecom
It sounds like the hardware side of wintel is wants to go it alone
intel, rewriting the history books
""We learned our lesson in waiting for software. We did this 64-bit thing that was perceived to be a little bit late relative to the market"
When he refers to "this 64 bit thing" is he referring to x64 or the ill-fated itanic.
I assume he is conveniently forgetting about the latter because I do believe that the Itanic was a) Released before x64 and b) a text book case of intel building the hardware and then expecting the software to follow.
And we all know how that went now don't we?
Maybe it is a poorly disguised dig at XP not advancing for umpteen years?
Maybe it is a dig at organisations working with HD/SD trying to milk HD content at grossly elevated cost while HD hardware has been available for years?
Maybe it is a dig at dinosaur like marketing models that try to link the next new technological thing for umpteen years only to find that nobody really wants to pay for it (mammals have evolved on - dinosaurs merely wait for extinction?)
Maybe it is a hint that newer and bolder stuff is in the pipeline but content providers either keep pace or get outwitted?
(By content providers I mean free market stuff rather than monopolies/oligopolies/ ... )
A previous Intel architecture with *lots* of internal features to support security and garbage collection (Ada and LISP).
Didn't work out too well then.
We'll see if it works out better this time.
