IBM Power 7 processor compatible with Opteron socket

Posted on Monday, March 26 2007 @ 19:43:18 CEST by

The guys from The Inq heard from their sources that IBM is working on a Power 7 processor which will feature socket compatibility with the future AMD Opteron processors:
Now there's one for the book. The plans suggest that IBM is quietly working behind the scenes to help scotch Intel's Itanium too, damaging Hewlett Packard in the process.

This second tactic is undoubtedly part of some cunning Big Blue FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) tactic and includes suggestions that HP wants to tell Intel to get its mitts off the development of the Itanium processor.

That would be another one for the book. Because Intel got its mitts on the Itanium development people HP had on the case, as we revealed here before it happened. IBM's reasoning for such an HP move - or perhaps irrationality in this case - would be that it's better at playing the high end server chip game a la PA-RISC and Alpha than Intel.

We have few fears that Big Blue's argument is both uncertain and doubtful.
