Intel: Itanium still requires by certain customers

Posted on Tuesday, June 08 2010 @ 04:05:32 CEST by

Intel said that despite the advances of Xeon and HPC accelerators, the world still needs Itanium:
Last week Intel Corp. unveiled its code-named Knights Corner chip, which is specifically designed to accelerate high-performance computing (HPC) tasks, and earlier this year the company unleashed its Xeon-series microprocessors that support reliability, availability and scalability (RAS) features, which are essential for mission critical applications that are served by the Itanium chips. Nonetheless, the world’s largest maker of chips is confident that the Itanium products will still be needed both in mid- and long-term future.

“Itanium enables Intel and HP to compete in the high-end, mission-critical UNIX market. Many in the industry believe that the combination of HP-UX and the Itanium architecture provides an exceptionally strong mission-critical solution, suitable for mainframe replacement. The Itanium architecture is at the base of a multibillion dollar business for HP, as well as being an important business for Intel,” said Patrick Ward, an Intel spokesman for Itanium business unit.
