IDF Fall 2005 (Intel's Developer Forum) in San Francisco has commenced as of today, with both Hexus and XBit Labs live at the event having already scooped up plenty of highly interesting news from Day 1. The main theme for this year's IDF looks to be focused on that of multicore platforms, and Hexus have a number of tidbits for us such as Intel's plans to release a fresh series of CPUs in the near future which is based on an entirely new architecture (The birth of P5?!), some opening speeches from the big guns, and other notes of interest. You can check them out individually as per the below linkies folks :-

IDF Fall 2005 started a few hours ago, and I already have something interesting for you to read. News from the dual-core front, amazing optimizations of the power consumption (and not only on the mobile segment), Merom, Conroe and Woodcrest and more!
This time they started the IDF opening keynote presentation in a very exciting way. If you have been following our news from the previous IDF shows, you should remember that a few times they showcased outstanding custom cars stuffed with computer and electronic technologies to the point of no return. This time, Intel is giving away a sparking new MINI Cooper (I hope it is a Supercharge one with a manual transmission), which rose from the clouds of fog and smoke before the startled audience this morning.
