IDF 2013: Intel Goes Mobile With New Chips, Software

By Jeffrey Burt  |  Posted 2013-09-12

SAN FRANCISCO—Several thousand attendees swarmed the Moscone West Convention Center here for Intel's 16th annual Intel Developer Forum, the annual get-together where company executives can make announcements and lay out their future game plans with the goal of getting developers on board. For many of those 16 years, IDF could be counted on for showing off big processors and big machines that would power the world's biggest data centers. However, the show this year reflected the rapidly changing dynamics in data centers and the industry, driven by such trends as cloud computing and the massive—and growing—numbers of connected devices, with the themes heavily slanted toward mobility and software. Intel had gotten the bulk of its data center news out of the way in the weeks leading up to IDF, leaving time for company executives to talk about their plans in mobility around chips—in particular, the new Atom Z3000 "Bay Trail" products—powering the devices and the software that ties everything together. In this slide show, eWEEK takes a quick look at a few of the sights around IDF.
