Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 9:16 am

Intel plans to provide details on a new generation of multicore processors at its semiannual developer conference in two weeks–and in the process highlight how its chip families are coming back together.

The new chips will start to emerge in the second half of 2006 and sport, among other attributes, greater energy efficiency and better manageability, according to sources familiar with the company’s plans. The chips are code-named Merom (for notebooks), Conroe (for desktops) and Woodcrest (for servers).

Intel CEO Paul Otellini plans to provide details about the new generation of chips on Aug. 23, the first day of the Intel Developer Forum, which will take place in San Francisco.
