Intel is showcasing for the first time its long-anticipated Moorestown platform at the company's annual developers conference in Beijing, the TG Daily writes. Hosted at the China National Convention Center, which is located at the Beijing Olympic Park, the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) this year discussed the future of a "seamless" cross-device experience for phones, cars and homes. Executive VP David Perlmutter at the event demonstrated the new Moorestown platform, whose sophisticated chips use up to 50 times less power than Intel's "Menlow" platform that was released in 2008. Despite delays so far, the executive said that the new platform is on track to be introduced in the first half of this year. Intel hopes the Moorestown platform will promote the creation of a singular operating environment that spans across different electronics hardware that are commonly used by consumers. The company also says it is now accepting applications from developers in China for its Intel Atom Developer Program.
