Intel's Pat Gelsinger spoke about the next Nehalem off spring called Jasper Forest, which is aimed at the embedded and storage space. He also spoke about Nehalems with on-processor graphics for upcoming laptops.

Gelsinger talks Next Gen Nehalem and Larrabee
Finally, for a dramatic climax, Gelsinger spoke of the long-awaited coming of lord Larrabee, the many-cored architecture designed for high throughput applications and featuring a programmable graphics pipeline, which Gelsinger promised would emancipate all developers who turned to it with an open heart.


Gelsinger announced the availability of a C++ Larrabee prototype library, and discussed how developers could use a future parallel programming ritual based on 'Ct' technology to prepare themselves for imminent Larrabee salvation sometime in 2009 or 2010
