The MBA-style program, which Andy helped establish with a $1.5 million donation, will target students from both medical and high-tech fields. The program begins this fall. The newspaper interviewed Andy and Dr. Sue Desmond-Hellmann, chancellor of UCSF formerly of Genentech, about the program and their motivations for the effort.

  • Corporate PC Costs - Penny Wise?
    April 28, 2009
     
    Companies hoping to shave costs by putting off the purchase of new PCs may actually spend more, according to a study commissioned by Intel and conducted by Wipro Product Strategy and Services. For a quick overview, there's also a fact sheet. According to the study, businesses can cut operational costs up to 52 percent with new PCs over four-year-old systems. Maintenance and acquisition costs are lowest at three years, making that the most cost-efficient time to buy. In fact, by buying then, companies can recoup their investment in in as little as 10 months if the PCs include Intel vPro technology. Possibly as important as cost, hanging onto to those old PCs could make the company vulnerable to up to 53 percent more security incidents in year four than year one.

  • Intel to Challenge Decision by Korea Fair Trade Commission
    December 9, 2008
     

    Intel Corporation today issued the following statement in response to the final written opinion from the Korea Fair Trade Commission (KFTC):

    Intel has filed a formal complaint with the Seoul High Court seeking to overturn the KFTC's final written decision that was served on Intel on Nov. 7, 2008. While the specific details of the Intel complaint are confidential due to a substantial amount of highly confidential business information, the filing asserts that the KFTC has made substantial factual and legal errors in formulating its final written opinion.

    Furthermore, Intel has expressed concern that the KFTC failed to understand the dynamics, pricing and competition in the microprocessor market. Intel also believes that the KFTC has misinterpreted or chose to ignore large amounts of economic evidence and analysis demonstrating the ultimate benefit to consumers from the reduced prices and increased performance of Intel's microprocessors.

    Proceeding directly to a formal complaint will permit a court to review the case in its entirety and reach an independent decision. Through this process, Intel believes that it will be able to demonstrate that its business practices are both fair and lawful. More information about Intel and "Competition in the Innovation Economy" is available at www.intel.com/pressroom/legal.

  • PC Models Fit For a Duchess
    November 04, 2008
     
    The Duchess of Windsor once famously quipped, "You can never be too rich or too thin." Many IT managers today would argue those points when it comes to deploying computers. Fully loaded "rich" clients, especially those notebooks packed with confidential company information, are too vulnerable to theft and difficult to manage. Thin clients, while secure and easy to manage, lack the performance and mobility workers need. Mike Ferron-Jones, Intel's expert on alternative computing models, may have the answer - dynamic virtual clients. Mike will talk about DVC technologies on BrightTALK's Virtualization Webcast, 3:45 p.m. PST, Tue., Nov. 4. If you can't make that, there's plenty to be learned on the Intel Emerging Compute Model Forum.

  • Intel Comments at IDF Taiwan
    October 23, 2008
     
    Anand Chandrasekher issued a correction on comments made by members of his team yesterday at Intel's Developer Forum in Taiwan. As general manager of the Group responsible for Intel's ultra-mobility products, he acknowledged that Intel's low-power Atom processor does not yet match the battery life characteristics of the ARM processor in a phone form factor; and, that while Intel does have plans on the books to get us to be competitive in the ultra low power domain - we are not there as yet. Secondly, Apple's iPhone offering is an extremely innovative product that enables new and exciting market opportunities. The statements made in Taiwan were inappropriate, and Intel representatives should not have been commenting on specific customer designs.

  • Analyst: Intel Quad-Cores Hit 10 Million Milestone
    April 24, 2008
     
    Intel has shipped more than 10 million quad-core processors, including over 3.5 million units shipped in the first quarter of 2008, according to Mercury Research. Shipments of Intel's quad-core processors began in November, 2006 and have ramped across server and desktop segments. Intel expects to ship quad-core processors in the mobile segment in the second half of 2008. In the latest quarter, Mercury indicates roughly two-thirds of Intel's quad-core processors went into servers and the remainder went into mainstream desktop PCs. "Intel's 10 million unit milestone reflects the benefits the rapid move to 45nm (manufacturing), allowing quad-core processors to become much more prevalent in the company's high performance product mix," said Dean McCarron, founder and principal analyst of Mercury Research.

    Parmigiano-Reggiano, the internationally renowned brand for the famous original Parmesan cheese - and a company known for its uncompromising quest for highest quality -- has chosen Intel vPro processor technology with Core 2 Duo processors to support its stringent processes aimed at ensuring the highest quality for their tasty products. Parmigiano-Reggiano said vPro can be utilized to support their collaboration model between geographically dispersed plants and employees and remotely fix any intervening IT glitches in a timely manner. Intel-based servers with the latest Intel Xeon processors will also play a key role in ensuring quality control and the in-depth analysis required to prevent contamination and monitor milk quality.

  • Intel, VMWare Look at What's Next
    September 26, 2007
     
    At the IDC Virtualization 2.0 Forum today, Intel's Lorie Wigle said the company is collaborating with VMware on optimizing Intel's forthcoming 45 nanometer Xeon processors and Intel Virtualization Technology (VT) FlexMigration assist for virtualized environments. Intel's FlexMigration enables virtualized workloads to be allocated dynamically across different generations of Xeon processors. Virtualization has become an increasingly important feature of today's data center. And, through the companies' continued collaboration, IT managers today can accelerate the deployment of virtualized infrastructures using VMware VMotion, enabling customers to dynamically allocate virtual machines across the data center among quad-core Intel Xeon processors.
  • A Hug for Intel's Moms - 100 Best
    September 25, 2007
     
    Intel has been named to Working Mother Magazine's 100 Best Companies, a list that recognizes corporations that are family-friendly leaders. Rosalind Hudnell, Intel's director of Corporate Diversity, said, "We take this recognition as a validation of our efforts over the past several years to improve the development and retention of Intel women." Intel's selection was based on an extensive application of 575 questions in key categories. Intel has two new programs in this area - the "New Parent Reintegration Program," which allows new parents to modify their work schedule to work part-time for up to 12 months after returning from leave, and the "Life Event Leave of Absence program," which provides up to 12 weeks of unpaid time off to manage family responsibilities or other life events not typically covered.

  • Satellite, WiMAX = Wireless Broadband to Remote Vietnam
    September 21, 2007
     
    Intel Vietnam has combined geosynchronous satellite and WiMAX to spot-beam high-speed wireless Internet into a remote mountainous region of far northern Vietnam. The project was done in collaboration with USAID and Vietnam Data Communication Company, and is intended to demonstrate that it's possible to connect even the most remote areas to the 21st century (and do so at a cost that makes it economically feasible on a wider scale). Previously, this area had only two old-style phone lines (no Internet).

  • What's a Transistor? Meet Haf "The Smallinator"
    September 18, 2007
     
    What is a transistor and how do the hundreds of millions of them work on a processor not much larger than a postage stamp? Meet Haf the little frog who learns about a big change in technology. Transistors are the essential building block inside all modern electronics devices. Yet they keep shrinking, this time thanks to Intel's hafnium-based high-k and metal gate technology. At 45nm, these transistors are so tiny that you could fit more than 300 million of them onto the head of a pin and more than 400 million of them will power Intel's soon-to-be-released chips. See it here. Thanks to graphic artist and director Geoff McFetridge who created the film.
