Intel delays Itanium 'Montecito'

Posted on Tuesday, October 25 2005 @ 02:33:23 CEST by

Intel announced it's next-generation Montecito Itanium processor has been delayed from Q1 2006 until the middle of 2006. The chip giant refuses to go in detail on the specifics of the processor other than to say they aren't satisfied with the quality right now.
Sales of the Itanium chip, which is used in high-powered, high-end computers to replace mainframe computers, among other uses, have not been as robust as Intel hoped, analysts have said.

"These very high end chips are hard and it is always tough to control the schedules in terms of when they're going to be ready for prime time," said Nathan Brookwood, an analyst at market research firm Insight 64. "There's probably some more testing that needed to be done."

But Montecito will still deliver twice the performance of the current Itanium version code-named Madison, McLaughlin said. The market for such high-end computers amounts to about 500,000 units annually, Brookwood said.
