Gelsinger released a video of a much younger version of himself talking about optical photonics and how the goal is to put that part into every chip Intel makes. The video is from two decades ago. Intel tuned into its lab in Scotland for a demonstration of a new optical connector that connects directly to an Intel processor.
Intel is working to create a seamless method of extending displays to PCs. You can also use iOS and Android devices to cast your screen to a PC. New Unison software is coming to new laptops this holiday season from Acer, HP and Lenovo.
Samsung introduced a new Samsung flexible display that can shrink or expand while rolling. The 17-inch screen is intended for PCs.
Intel will launch more than 50 Raptor Lake chips and 500 designs.
Intel will release a 6 GHz SKU, in limited volumes. It will hit the market next year.
Gelsinger announced Raptor Lake processors. They will hit the market on October 20. You can read our coverage here.
Intel launches Intel Getty, an AI training software.
Gelsinger wants to make it easier to deploy AI models. So he developed a tool that helps fix outdated AI models. The company demonstrated its new software at work.
Intel has a new neural encoder that removes CUDA from code so it can run on Intel’s OneAPI. Intel introduced the one-click solution that removed the code.
Gelsinger introduced the company’s new chief AI officer
Here is the mandatory photo of the card.
Gelsinger announced that Intel will help reduce excessively high GPU prices for gamers, by introducing the Arc A770 GPU. It said it was 65% faster than the competition when it comes to ray tracing. It’s available October 12 for $329. The cards are on their way to reviewers.
Gelsinger also flashed a Ponte Vecchio GPU and Sapphire Rapids CPU that will power the Aurora supercomputer. Gelsinger announced that Intel is FINALLY shipping silicon to the Aurora system.
Gelsinger said GPUs will play a vital role in the future. Gelsinger said GPUs were on his unfinished to-do list when he left Intel, but he’s back to fix that. He then introduced the Flex 170 and Flex 140 data center GPUs. This one features a hardware-based AV1 decoder for cloud providers. The GPUs also support OneAPI and all major AI distributions.
Intel is also investing in the talent ecosystem by working with universities to develop the next generation of chip designers. Intel’s college shuttle program is already well underway.
Intel will continue to work to build semiconductor manufacturing capacity for IFS, and that includes its acquisition of Tower Semiconductor. Intel plans to make its Intel Foundry Services a producer of system-level chips. This requires producing not only chip wafers, but also chip packages, software and chiplets. On the latter, Intel is working to create industry standards, like UCIe, that foster an ecosystem of chips. More than 80 companies participate. Gelsinger then released a video showing executives from TSMC and Samsung expressing their support for the UCIe.
Gelsinger talked about Intel’s new IDM 2.0 strategy and how Moore’s Law plays into the strategy. Gelsinger says Moore’s Law is not dead – someone told NVidia CEO Jensen Huang. Intel plans to develop five new nodes in four years.
Gelsinger said a few tech superpowers have been pushing the digital world, including computing, connectivity, cloud and edge infrastructure, and artificial intelligence, but now he’s adding “sensing” to the list.
Gelsinger’s shirt has ‘GEEK’ written in binary code.
Intel CEO Pat Geisinger took the stage.
Just a day after AMD officially launched its Zen 4 processors – check out our Ryzen 9 7950X and Ryzen 5 7600X review – Intel Innovation kicks off with a keynote from CEO Pat Gelsinger. We expect to hear a lot about the upcoming Raptor Lake product line and 13th Gen CPUs, Arc GPUs, and various other topics.
