HP stops Itanium 2 workstation production and goes for EM64T

Posted on Friday, September 24 2004 @ 17:28:11 CEST by

HP, one of the world’s largest makers of servers, workstations, desktops and notebooks, said it was going to cease production of Intel Itanium 2-based workstations, citing demand switch to systems with Intel Xeon processors 64-bit capability known as EM64T.

“HP is discontinuing its Itanium-based workstations. In working with and listening to our high-performance workstation partners and customers, we have become aware that the focus in this arena is being driven toward 64-bit extension technology,” HP’s spokeswoman Nita Miller told X-bit labs.

As mentioned by a comment HP is indeed not ceasing its Itanium 2 server production but its Itanium 2 workstation production. My apologies for this mistake.

This headline is absolutely incorrect. Please correct it. HP has discontinued Itanium workstations - NOT servers.
