@rick.merritt: I hope you get to attend IDF in Sept and give us an update. The Ultrabooks or tablet notebooks (or whatever buzzword fits!) could become a savior for Intel. The popularity of a tablet platform combined with computing horsepower at no/lower additional power consumption can be a real enabler. Looks like the fabs/IDM's at the next processor nodes can all be counted with digits in one hand! MP Divakar

At least this is one company that continues to invest in its future through research. Too many companies sit on the fence once they're ahead.

It's good for Intel to pave the path for Tablets, Smartphone market. Otherwise, they might be falling behind ARM in recent future.

It could be more tracks to handle more capabilities (at very least).

I wonder if the extra spending is to pave the way for 450mm wafers.

Doesn't this also mean they made some decisions about their 7 nm process?

When you have more, you spend more. Intel is using their cash to pave the way to future income in the netbook market.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
