Gelsinger also revealed that Intel is ramping up its Linux work and is extending its Intel Developer Forum programmes. Its next IDF, in February next year, will include information on Linux for servers, as well as extend its initiatives on security and mobile connectivity. In September next year, it will give more details of its IA64 architecture, and also outline its Next Gen Server I/O, which is intended to replace PCI.

Intel is spearheading the digital transmission content protection (DTCP) system, intended to prevent copyright breaches across the Web, and Gelsinger said that the 5C DTCP specification is already available. ®
