Intel press releases confirm Itanium roadmap committed
Oracle’s press release dated March 22nd stated “..Itanium was nearing the end of its life”. Really?
I would like to share Intel’s press releases for those of our readers whom have not seen the recent announcements.
- On Feb 17 (only five weeks prior to Oracle’s statement above), Intel released Poulson, offering 3.1 billion transistors, the most of any current microprocessor, to advance the Itanium architecture for the next decade of mission-critical computing. Here is the fact sheet and Intel contact information
- Intel further positions the Itanium roadmap in the press release on March 23. Kittson is an officially committed roadmap product for Itanium beyond Poulson and is also in active development.
