Virtualization is "part of our drive towards adding capabilities to the platforms versus offering broad [processor] gigahertz," said Chad Taggard, director of advanced technologies marketing, for Intel.
"Instead of going up in gigahertz, we can add capabilities that are favourable to end-users. So that's what we're doing here."
"We've got lots of different usage [models in mind] that will help virtualization on the client become very mainstream over the next several years," he said. "We think by 2007 or 2008 this will be a mainstream capability."
