new mode of next generation computing: connected visual computing

since its birth, Internet has experienced from web 1.0 focusing on static information display to Web 2.0 emphasizing interactive community. The next step will be towards a new era of providing richer and real experience. In this context, embedded and visual computing are emerging

on the media day the day before the official opening of IDF, at a research communication meeting on the theme of "connecting real life and the digital world", technical experts from Intel's research department introduced some of Intel's ongoing forward-looking research plans to the industry. From the perspective of these research plans, it is just in line with this development trend

following Intel's introduction of the concept of "carry small live large (csll)" on IDF this spring, Jim held, an Intel academician and director of trillions of computing research projects, proposed a new computing mode called "connected visual computing (CVC)". In CVC mode, people can share experiences and information in a highly intuitive and interactive visual interface

CVC applications that Intel is studying include two types: enhancing the real world and creating the virtual world. The former includes that the current method is mainly used in various packaging containers and the manufacturing of tubular films to repay the society with better products and services. The real world image is combined with digital information to better show the augmented reality of the surrounding world. The latter includes virtual world, multi-user games, 3D cinemas and other analog environments. According to statistics, there are more than 2000 virtual world applications such as second life, and the number of people participating in the virtual world will increase from 60million last year to 1billion 10 years later

the increasingly rich applications, more and more realistic 3D images, and the rapidly growing user base make the CVC application mode bring great challenges to the current computing performance and network bandwidth of computers and connected devices. According to Intel's preliminary prediction, CVC applications need to increase the server performance by 10 times. On the client side, the CPU performance needs to be increased by 3 times, and the GPU needs to be increased by 20 times. However, the network transmission bandwidth faces greater challenges and needs to be increased by 100 times. The biggest bandwidth limit lies in the link from server to client

on the other hand, the main purpose of csll research is to achieve rich and valuable personalized experience. A technology called environment awareness integrates a variety of technologies such as sensors, wireless networks, computing and display. It can better understand users' needs and their surrounding environment through sensors and reasoning. Mary smiley, director of Intel emerging platform laboratory, showed an application of mobile sensing technology in the field of the impact of humidity on the mechanical properties of nylon: an experimental staff connected with a sensor is constantly changing the movement state, such as static, walking or running, and the smart mobile device connected with the sensor can set fitness goals according to the physical ecological indicators transmitted by the sensor, Guide them to make reasonable movement state adjustment at any time

although relevant research is still in its early stage, it may be widely used in many fields in the future, including interactive user interface, wireless display, social network, intelligent environment, health monitoring and so on

ia: feast of architecture consistency

accessing the Internet through PC has become increasingly popular all over the world. With the gradual maturity of wireless broadband technology, more and more applications are transferring to mobile Internet. The latest goal of chip giants is to enter this new market. This intention may be seen from Kissinger, senior vice president and general manager of digital enterprise business division of Intel, who gave a speech on the theme of "ia= embedded + dynamic + visual"

from atom to core, Xeon and Itanium, Intel already has a complete product line with TDP power consumption ranging from 1W to 130W. At present, it can cover all computing platforms except for atom. When the upgraded processor Moorestown of atom is born next year, it is entirely possible for atom with further reduced power consumption to enter the market. Except for Itanium, Intel processors have all started to adopt ia architecture

from the perspective of application, various undertaking markets (such as mid, mid, Shangben, laptop, etc.) have natural integration characteristics, so the compatibility of platform applications becomes more and more important. Therefore, the adoption of a unified ia architecture undoubtedly helps to improve the smoothness and smoothness of applications. However, to adapt the same architecture to such a wide range of applications, the processor needs to have excellent scalability

the most scalable product line comes from the core architecture. Core's next-generation Nehalem microarchitecture was fully demonstrated and the details of the architecture were revealed on the autumn IDF. Nehalem's greatest feature in architecture design is to maximize the scalability of the processor architecture on the basis of balancing performance and power consumption to adapt to complex and diverse applications. Nehalem adopts modular design for the processor except the core, which is also the biggest subtext behind the so-called "dynamic"

among the Nehalem architecture features publicly displayed, several are well known in the industry: for example, 2, 4, and 8 cores can be configured internally; Adopt new QPI interconnection bus, integrated memory controller and hyper threading technology; Support DDR3, PCIe 2.0 and sse4.2 instruction sets

on the other hand, nelalem's power control and performance improvement technology was first announced: Nehalem adopted a new acceleration mode and introduced a power gate design into the processor architecture. The latter can switch any core according to the load, so that the power consumption of the static core is close to zero; When the power gate detects that the workload of a kernel is light, it can transfer its workload to other cores, and the voltage and frequency of the working core will be increased to provide better computing performance. Nehalem also partitions the voltage/frequency of the microkernel, memory and non core parts. The power of each part can be optimized independently, thus greatly reducing the non operating power consumption. It is through this "power consumption" transfer technology that nelalem achieves the optimal energy consumption ratio

Core i7 (put into operation in the fourth quarter of this year) for high-end desktop market and Nehalem EP for mainstream server market will be the first Nehalem architecture products to be listed. The processors of Nehalem ex and mainstream desktop computers (R & D codes are "havendale" and "Lynnfield" respectively) and notebook computers (R & D codes are "Auburndale" and "Clarksfield" respectively) facing the scalable server market (i.e. MP market) will be put into production in the second half of next year. Intel also announced the detailed parameters of the Core i7 processor, including the use of 4-core 8-thread, 8MB Smart Cache and integrated 3-channel DDR3 memory controller

facing the increasingly complex multi-core parallel programming environment, Renee, vice president and general manager of software and solutions division of Intel? James announced that Intel will launch the parallel studio parallel programming software tool set, which includes a variety of extended functions to discover, develop, debug and tune parallel programs. This is the first software programming development tool set launched by Intel for parallel programming alone, which can help developers program multi-core more efficiently. A new era of parallel programming is about to begin

mobile computing becomes mainstream

on IDF, David Pu, executive vice president and general manager of mobile business division of Intel, said that mobile computing has become the mainstream. Because by the end of this year or the beginning of next year, the shipment volume of notebook computers will exceed that of desktop computers

in the near future, notebook computers will officially enter the four core era - the mobile Q9100 and the premium QX9300 will be fully settled in the mobile platform later this year, and Intel SATA solid state drive and anti-theft technology (Intel at) will further enhance the performance and security of the mobile platform. Intel has also released 8 new small-size packaged processors, with a package area more than half that of the current normal version. Meanwhile, Dell, Asustek, Lenovo, Panasonic and Toshiba will launch notebook computers that support WiMAX Technology in the future

David Pu also showed the Calpella laptop platform with Nehalem architecture processor. This is the new mobile platform to be launched next year

Anand, general manager of portable business unit, showed the latest progress of mid. Anand was connected to "worldofwarcraft", one of the most intensive computing stations in the world, and conducted a high-definition demonstration on the world's first handheld device. Several suppliers are about to launch multi-purpose mid devices. Among them, Clarion's mid is mainly aimed at the next generation of navigation devices, which can provide location-based real-time services. Panasonic and Fujitsu have also launched shockproof and the smallest folding PC products based on the mid platform

Anand also showed the wafer moving the next generation "Moorestown" platform, which also means that the first Moorestown chip has been successfully manufactured. It is expected that this platform will be available from 2009 to 2010. Anand also meaningfully pointed out that the Moorestown architecture will have many functions and may bring data and voice functions to mobile communication interconnection devices, which is a declaration of Intel's entry into the mobile communication device market

Lingdong dominates the embedded market

traditional embedded applications are a very complex market, while consumer electronics and increasingly rich Internet applications breed a broader market space. Intel predicts that 15billion embedded computing devices will be connected to the Internet in 2015. Embedded Internet applications have derived many emerging markets, such as IP network and security, video intelligence, medical treatment, on-board information and entertainment, home automation and so on. The boundaries between traditional consumption and vertical industries are gradually blurred
