Intel's Sean Maloney doesn't take the stage for about another hour at the Intel Developer Forum, but we do know he's going to give server chips a little love.

Here's what Maloney, executive vice president and co-general manager of Intel Corporation's Intel Architecture Group (IAG), will say according to an early release by Intel obtained by ZDNet UK's Rupert Goodwins:

Nehalem-EX will be better than the Xeon 5500 by an even greater margin than the 5500 was from its predecessors. Today's hot enterprise fashion, the converged datacentre, gets some new fabric based on Intel's 10GbE networking, there'll be a Xeon 3000 ultra-low voltage server chip running at 30w thermal envelope, a new 'micro-server' reference platform, more stuff on Jasper Forest embedded media/CE processor, and a vPro KVM remote control.

Nice to see Maloney give some enterprise love. The rest of his talk focuses on enthusiast chips for gaming and some graphic show-and-tell.
