Intel finally says goodbye to Itanium in 2021

In what will surprise nobody, Intel is finally saying goodbye to its Itanium lineup. AnandTech reports the Itanum 9700 "Kittson" will be discontinued in mid-2021 and that there will be no replacement. The overall impact will be minimal, the only company still shipping servers with Itanium is HP Enterprise.
The current-generation octa and quad-core Itanium 9700-series processors were introduced by Intel in 2017, in the process becoming the final processors based on the IA-64 ISA. Kittson for its part was a clockspeed-enhanced version of the Itanium 9500-series ‘Poulson’ microarchitecture launched in 2012, and featured a 12 instructions per cycle issue width, 4-way Hyper-Threading, and multiple RAS capabilities not found on Xeon processors back then. It goes without saying that the writing has been on the wall for Itanium for a while now, and Intel has been preparing for an orderly wind-down for quite some time.
Itanium is a family of 64-bit processors that got introduced in 2001. The chips use the IA-64 architecture and never became as popular as Intel had hoped.
