IDF 2012: New strategy


A few were surprised that Intel didn’t mention the phone business at the IDF keyone. The phone market has become a huge deal for Intel and despite significant leaps and the first design wins, Intel chose not to mention this at all.

The general feeling is that Intel won’t talk about phones at all and that this part of business will probably align with big phone oriented trade shows like CES in the US or Mobile World congress in Barcelona. Here in San Francisco, at IDF 2012 they didn’t talk about it at all.

Tomorrow's keynote from Renée James, Senior Vice President General Manager, Software and Services Group is titled "Security and Services in an Age of Transparent Computing" and we are quite sure that it won’t include a showcase of next generation phone silicon.

Current phones have a CPU core codenamed Penwell and a system-on-chip called Medfield, while the next generation is codenamed Silvermont for the CPU and the ScC is called Merrifield.

From what we know Silvermont is 22nm and should come next year. All these details came from sources a while ago and haven’t changed since and Intel didn’t talk on the record about any phone stuff.
