'Intel hints at the end of the Itanium'

Posted on Thursday, November 10 2005 @ 11:21:19 CET by

In a video discussion of Visual Studio 2005 Intel possibly hinted at the end of its Itanium processor line.
"Visual Studio 2005 will help our customers accelerate away from RISC," seems quite simple and innocuous at first glance but the ramifications run deep. The simple fact is that the only product Intel has in the RISC space is, you guessed it, the Itanium.

It may be that Intel was trying to say that Visual Studio 2005 will help its customers move to Itanic from SPARC and Power but that argument falls flat. Visual Studio 2005 being available on Itanium should mean that moving to x86 is as simple as recompiling at worst. If you use Visual Basic or C#, the Common Language Runtime should mean your programs will work on either platform.
More details over here.
