Intel Developer Forum: 'Collaborative Innovation' Key to Growth for Intel and Chinese Markets

Tuesday, April 10, 2012 10:00 PM


Throughout Intel Corporation’s developer forum that starts today, company executives emphasized the importance of collaborating with China’s government and industry to help create new business and innovation opportunities for Intel and its 14 million developers worldwide. The management team detailed its vision of how such collaborations could potentially spawn the next-generation of advances in business, consumer electronics and many more industries around the globe.

“The impact of major global trends, such as the rapidly growing middle class as well as the explosive growth of connected, mobile Internet and cloud computing traffic, is playing out ten-fold in China,” said Sean Maloney, executive vice president of Intel Corporation and chairman of Intel China.

For example, China became the largest PC market in the world last year, growing a remarkable 13 percent in 2011 and now represents 20 percent of all PC demand, according to IDC, a global industry analyst firm. In addition, IDC shows servers in China are growing at more than eight times the rate of the worldwide average over the past 5 years, making the country the second-largest data center market segment in the world. With more than 1 billion subscribers**, China is also the world’s largest segment for mobile phones.

To address these and other opportunities, Intel executives speaking in Beijing highlighted several technology advancements and local collaborations designed to bring richer, more connected computing experiences from the cloud to computing devices of all types.

The announcements included the introduction of Intel® Small Business Advantage (SBA) designed to help maintain and protect PCs automatically and improved visual experience with built-in visuals on Intel’s forthcoming 3rd generation Intel Core products with Intel® HD Graphics 2500/4000. The company also revealed that Intel Labs China will work closely with leading Chinese OEMs, operators and municipalities for ongoing technology research and development in China.

In his first speech since being appointed chairman of Intel China last year, Maloney opened the company’s largest two-day technical conference in Asia by noting how overcoming barriers in technology represents more than just physics or engineering problem.

“As the world continues to advance, so too must semiconductor technology, and that is never more evident than today with the pending release of Tri-Gate transistors and 22 nm process technology,” said Maloney. “Few individuals and industries will be untouched as powerful microprocessors, Internet-connections, and user experience breakthroughs are applied across the worlds of business, healthcare, education and the society at large.”

Transforming the Personal Computing Experience

During his keynote presentation, Kirk Skaugen, vice president and general manager of Intel’s PC Client Group discussed how Intel is helping drive a dramatic change in the personal computing experience for consumers and businesses with new hardware, software and solutions. Ultrabook™ devices have already begun this transformation, and Skaugen showcased numerous systems on stage and reiterated that more than 75 designs are planned for 2012 with many touch-enabled systems expected. This next wave of Ultrabook devices, powered by 3rd generation Intel® Core processors with Intel® HD Graphics 2500/4000, will bring significant performance improvements for even greater computing experiences.

To address the small business segment without IT support, Skaugen also announced Intel SBA will be available on the 2nd generation Intel® Core processors. With Intel SBA, small businesses can maximize business productivity by keeping PCs performing at an optimal level while securing data by reducing the risk of virus disruptions, leakage of confidential data and data loss.
