Exclusive From IDF: Intel CTO Justin Rattner
Intel CTO Justin Rattner’s candid preview of events at this week’s Intel Developer Forum included an overview of the presentations on Intel’s Penryn and Nehalem processors, and recent progress toward 32 nanometer chip production (and Intel’s efforts to keep up with Moore’s Law).
He also discussed Intel’s work on new rendering via a technology called ray tracing. According to Rattner, there’s a synergy betweeen the ease and increased ability to render using the power of Parallel Computing.
The bottom line from the CTO is that Intel is engaging developers and users in new ways, with the aim of defining what the next generation of paralell and multi-core computing will be like.
