Taking place yesterday afternoon during Intel's Fall 2007 IDF was their technology showcase and reception. There were a variety of booths setup with all different manufacturers from American Megatrends to Corsair and NVIDIA.

Intel's Fall 2007 Developer Forum started today in San Francisco at Moscone Center West, and there is already a number of exciting happenings to report on. We will have more formal articles to report on shortly, but in this article we've attached several photographs taken so far today. Among the happenings were the Nehalem demonstration, 32nm talk, and also Gordon Moore was on stage for an hour talking about various topics. Gordon Moore had talked about Moore's Law coming to a likely end in the next 10 to 15 years, pico bucks, language recognition in computing, and even his fishing trips. Later in the day a new Sun workstation was shown that hasn't yet been released but is Intel Tigerton compatible and ships with a massive amount of RAM. Virtualization was also a very hot topic later in the day.

Phoronix served as media partners with O'Reilly for this event.
Google wouldn't allow visitors or those involved with the LF Collaboration Summit to take photographs inside their Mountain View campus buildings, but outside was fair-game.
