Intel Insider, Delivery Agent to Power New Entertainment Experiences for Ultrabooks

Intel Corporation is working with Delivery Agent, Inc., the leader in multi-channel commerce for the largest global media companies and an Intel Capital portfolio company, to bring a vast library of premium television content, from top TV and cable networks, in 1080p HD to Ultrabooks and PCs with Intel Insider.

Intel Insider is a hardware feature of the 2nd generation Intel Core processor that allows online content services to offer the latest high-definition (HD) movies and television content in 1080p on Ultrabook, notebook and desktop computers. At the end of 2011, Intel had shipped over 70 million processors that support Intel Insider.

Happy 40th year microprocessor!

Intel 4004

Forty years ago, the first microprocessor Intel 4004 was born. Ten years older than the personal computer, the 4004 was not very powerful. It was primarily used to perform simple mathematical operations in a calculator called “Busicom.”

Nowadays, modern microprocessors can perform extremely sophisticated operations in areas such as meteorology, aviation, nuclear physics and engineering, and take up much less space as well as delivering superior performance.

Multi-Core Goes Mainstream, Computing Pushed to Extremes

Citing the impact of multi- and many-core computing hitting the mainstream and new developments in extreme scale computing as examples, Justin Rattner, Intel’s chief technology officer, told an Intel Developer Forum audience that the future of computing is being accelerated.

“Since 2006 Intel and the IA developer community have worked in partnership to realize the potential of multi- and many-core computing, with accelerating impact beyond high-performance computing to solving a wide range of real-world computing problems on clients and servers,” Rattner said during his Day 3 keynote in San Francisco.

New Transistors for 22 Nanometer Chips Have an Unprecedented Combination of Power Savings and Performance Gains

Intel Corporation announced a significant breakthrough in the evolution of the transistor, the microscopic building block of modern electronics. For the first time since the invention of silicon transistors over 50 years ago, transistors using a three-dimensional structure will be put into high-volume manufacturing. Intel will introduce a revolutionary 3-D transistor design called Tri-Gate, first disclosed by Intel in 2002, into high-volume manufacturing at the 22-nanometer (nm) node in an Intel chip codenamed “Ivy Bridge.” A nanometer is one-billionth of a meter.

The three-dimensional Tri-Gate transistors represent a fundamental departure from the two-dimensional planar transistor structure that has powered not only all computers, mobile phones and consumer electronics to-date, but also the electronic controls within cars, spacecraft, household appliances, medical devices and virtually thousands of other everyday devices for decades.
