Silicon Graphics Inc. plans to overhaul its high-performance Altix computers a year from now to accommodate dual-core Itanium processors from Intel.

SGI, which specializes in machines for high-performance technical-computing jobs such as aerodynamics simulations, plans to release its next-generation Altix model at the same time that Intel releases its new "Montecito" version of Itanium, said Dave Parry, senior vice president of SGI's server and platform group. That processor is scheduled to debut in the second half of 2005.
