Default Intel's Three-Pronged Attack

As the battleground between Advanced Micro Devices (NYSE: AMD) and Intel (Nasdaq: INTC) gets ever hotter, each company continues to try to one-up the other with innovative new processors. In an effort to maintain an edge in the fight, Intel just launched a three-pronged offensive by announcing a trio of new chips that will increase power and efficiency.

At the Intel Developer Forum, a technology conference, Intel President and Chief Operating Officer Paul Otellini announced that the chips will each target different segments of the market. The chip code-named "Woodcrest" is aimed at the server market, while "Conroe" is slated for the desktop PC market, and "Merom" is directed toward notebook PCs. All of the chips will be made using Intel's cutting-edge 65 nanometer process technology.

In addition to being very powerful, what really makes the three new chips unique is their emphasis on electricity conservation. Traditionally, to increase power in chips, efficiency had to be sacrificed. But Otellini is planning on taking advantage of the new chips' dual-core architecture to deliver increased power while also conserving energy.

That is not withstanding the delay Intel accustoms to in recent years. Until the fat lady sings, I will hold on to my wallet on Intel processors. Any Northwood running over 3.2 Ghz will not lose much in terms of performance. All A64 with SLI board again will not be behind in games.

That leaves me wondering how the hack Intel makes so much money ...... from the uninformed consumers or good marketing or thanks to Dell ?? Perhaps, from companies selling water cooling or huge heatsink to cool off Intel processors of late.
