Intel denies killing Itanium

Written by Nick Farell


Oracle just made it up
Intel has denied Oracle's claims that it has plans to kill off the Itanium chip.

Yesterday Oracle said it was not supporting the chip any more because Chipzilla had lost interest in it. However we got a statement from Intel this morning saying that its work on Intel Itanium processors and platforms continues unabated with multiple generations of chips currently in development and on schedule.

Paul Otellini, president and CEO of Intel was quoted as saying that Intel remain firmly committed to delivering a competitive, multi-generational roadmap for HP-UX and other operating system customers that run the Itanium architecture.

Poulson is Intel’s next generation 32nm 8 core based Itanium chip, and is on track to more than double the performance of the existing Tukwila architecture. Kittson is an officially committed roadmap product for Itanium beyond Poulson and is also in active development. Intel Itanium processor industry momentum will be highlighted in a keynote at the upcoming Beijing Intel Developer’s Forum, the statement said.
