Intel "At next week's Intel developer forum, the firm is due to announce a next generation x86 processor core. The current speculation is this new core is going too be based on one of the existing Pentium M cores. I think it's going to be something completely different."

Too many here keep mentioning laptops as the reason for this change.

I wonder about some of you and your business acumen. The desktops and laptops are not the big money makers.
It's about $$$ computer clusters $$$$ for big business, science and government.

There is a big SHIFT towards new architecture of graphics cards for science. If Intel doesn't get a toehold , someone might like Nvidia or ATI or Sony with Cell.

Intel does a good job of reading the tea leaves.
