Intel Details Long-term Xeon, Itanium Plans

Tuan Nguyen & Kristopher Kubicki - June 18, 2007 7:31

Intel says Itanium will continue to sail for the long run

Intel this week revealed new details about where it plans to take its server processor business, specifically with the Itanium processor. As many know, Intel took a gamble on the Itanium when it was released several years ago. Using a then uncommon Explicitly Parallel Instruction Computing (EPIC) architecture left the majority of the industry unsure of its practicality in an x86-dominated world. Today however, the Itanium family brings in roughly $3.5 billion per annun for Intel.

Considering how long it has been in development, one would expect it to be doing much better than it is. The fact of the matter is that the Itanium is a niche processor, and will remain so for the foreseeable future, IMO.

No IT guy in Corporate America has gotten fired for buying Intel. If you're the IT purchasing guy for someone like Honeywell, and you buy something else and something goes wrong, who do you think is gonna get fired?

Believe me, something goes wrong, somebody gets fired. I had a friend who used to work at the Evil Empire (MS). He was the head of sourcing for their mice. He's basically a buyer. One time something went wrong. The mice didn't work right because someone at the factory he selected had the wrong chips installed. My friend got fired.

Gee, I wish it worked that way at the company I work for.

We've got a project that is currently entering its 5th year of development. The original roadmap called for it to be in its current state of readiness after the first 1 1/2 years of development. The guy in charge of the project has been PROMOTED, TWICE! (He's now the VP of engineering)
