X-bit Labs writes the dual-core Itanium processors from Intel will be launched in July:
“This is the summer of servers. We have Woodcrest. We'll have Tulsa and Montecito. We have quad-cores coming,” Intel senior vice president Pat Gelsinger said Monday in New York at the Intel Xeon 5100-series announcement.

According to a report at EETimes web-site, Intel will formally introduce its dual-core IA64 Itanium processor code-named Montecito in July, 2006. Meanwhile, Intel itself confirmed that it plans to release its IA32 chip oriented on multiprocessor servers – code-named Tulsa – in the third quarter of the year, making Intel’s overall lineup of server processors more competitive.
