When I visit potential HP Integrity customers, I often get questions around the Itanium processor, and the related roadmap. In fact, many non-HP customers seem to have heard the FUD from our competitors, and are surprised that Itanium isn't dead.
Intel has offered a public Itanium roadmap that includes the current Itanium 9300 processor series, a follow up processor called Poulson, and even a future Itanium processor called Kittson. Their public roadmap is available as a PDF and is one of the longer public roadmaps availablefor mission critical systems.
Now, we know that more details about the Poulson microarchitecture will be discussed at the International Solid State Circuits Conference in 2011 according to the advanced program release [PDF]. I am personally looking forward to reading about the conference and getting more details next year. David Kanter has an article on real world technologies that discusses what Poulson might look like if you are interested in more details.
