Intel To Showcase Sossaman And Monahans At IDF Russia
Next week, Intel will use its developer forum in Moscow as an opportunity to showcase two future processors codenamed Sossaman and Monahans, according to the company. Although both these codenames were officially announced at August IDF in the US, some sources mentioned, for example, Sossaman almost a year ago.
Based on a dual-core Yonah architecture, which is developed for notebook CPUs, this processor will be targeted for server rack and blade designs where space is constrained, according to Intel. The company plans to make Sossaman supporting dual-CPU configurations and launch the first Sossaman CPUs in the first half of 2006. Next week at Moscow IDF, Sossaman will be displayed as a part of the special showcase called the Digital Enterprise Zone.
It is expected that the Monahans processor will be introduced in Moscow by Shmuel (Mooly) Eden, vice president of Intel’s mobility group and general manager of the mobile platforms group, who will deliver a keynote on the first day of the event. Designed for handsets, smartphones, PDAs and consumer electronic devices, this product family of next-generation XScale application processors is expected to provide five times more performance within the next few years, while consuming less energy than previous XScale-based platforms, Intel said in August. A that time the company indicated that Monahans will probably debut in the fourth quarter of 2005. However, Intel is now aiming at a 2006 launch, and the Moscow event will include the “Technology direction for 2007 mobile platforms” seminar featuring Monahans, according to the company.
IDF Russia will be held in Moscow on October 11-12. Three Taiwan companies, Foxconn Electronics (the registered trade name of Hon Hai Precision Industry), Gigabyte Technology and Tyan, confirmed their participation at the event.
