Intel's planning its own version of "Quadrophenia" for this week's Intel Developer Forum, except without The Who or any tough, young mods facing off against angry rockers.

Instead of a rock opera, Intel will shed more light on its plans for quad-core processors, company representatives and analysts said. It has already revealed the code names for the server and desktop versions of those chips: Clovertown and Kentsfield. Those models will be constructed by combining Intel's two newest dual-core processors in those categories in a multichip package.
What's new:

Developers and industry partners will head to San Francisco this week to hear Intel's plans. The chipmaker is expected to reveal more about its quad-core chip designs and to outline ideas for mobile and server processors.
Bottom line:

Intel will be working to generate momentum, after a tough year that has seen layoffs, exec reshuffles and loss of ground to rival AMD.

Attendees are also expected to hear more details about Santa Rosa, an updated version of Intel's Centrino package of chips for notebook PCs, scheduled to arrive around March of next year. And the chipmaker's server division will also likely have a few things to talk about, including the Common System Interface architecture that Intel expects to debut in 2008, and possible plans to let future server processors link directly to third-party co-processors.... more
