"The collaboration among so many companies to address this industry-wide issue across several different processor architectures has been truly remarkable".
Meltdown and Spectre are unusual in that they are both problems with a fundamental component inside modern computers - the central processing unit (CPU). Security is job number one for Intel and our industry.
It does appear Intel is taking it seriously.
Closing out the presentation, Intel's CEO showcased the company'new automated driving platform.
Intel human resources chief Leslie Culbertson will run the new group, called Intel Product Assurance and Security. Of course, this problem isn't unique to Intel, with major companies like Google and Apple also falling within the purview of the attacks but it was Intel's initial response which seemed to disappoint many.
Its chip-making rival Nvidia had boasted earlier in the week that it was working with more than 320 partners on self-drive vehicles, including Uber and VW. Coincidentally, Smith was also the Pentium manager who explained Intel's FDIV bug to reporters 24 years ago.
The underlying technology to make this future a reality already exists today, " he said as he showed a video of himself flying in a Volocopter, a single-passenger electric helicopter made in Germany that uses Intel technology.
Ford Announces 2019 Ford Edge ST — Sharper Edge
Sport mode will also allow for sharper engine braking and, perhaps most importantly, pushes out a more resonant exhaust note. It is also mated to the eight-speed automatic, but the transmission gets a special tune and different gear ratios.
And this data is the future of Intel, till now known as more of a PC-centric company.
The technology was originally used to capture and deliver high-definition 3D content from sporting events. An NFL football game recorded this way will generate three terabytes of data per minute, Krzanich said.
In North America Intel is also partnering with Ferrari where the sports auto firm will use the artificial intelligence technologies developed by the chipmaker to apply data obtained from the racing tracks with a view to enhancing the experiences of fans and drivers.
Intel will branch out soon.
In sports, Krzanich announced that Intel will enable the largest scale virtual reality event to date with the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 using Intel True VR technology.
The chip is part of Intel's attempt to reinvent itself.
Security researchers had disclosed two security flaws exposing vulnerability of almost every modern computing device containing chips from Intel, Advanced Micro Devices and ARM Holdings. By using these quantum chips, Intel and others believe that they can solve problems of much higher complexity than traditional silicon microprocessors-though Intel and its rivals have invested billions in continually improving those chips.
