HP has sold off its chip design team to Intel. It is now Intel's
complete responsibility to develop Itanium.

Now they can reassign those people without fanfare.

The vultures are circling the Itanic, as it staggers on.

"Under the terms with Intel, HP's Itanium development team, which
includes several hundred engineers, will be acquired by Intel and
remain in Ft. Collins, Colo., according to the report."

It seems they've been reassigned to Intel :-)

I honestly think this just gave Itanium new life. It actually has a chance
now. Having HP draped all over this was the worst thing that ever happened
to it.

That's what I mean. They can shift them within Intel. If they were
still inside HP, that would be a lot harder, because there aren't any
other big processor projects (that I know of) to which they could be
silently moved. A layoff would be noticed.

I'd love to hear your reasons for believing this! From all reports the
architecture grew out of HP. ...unless you're saying that the "worst
thing that ever happened" was to start work on it. ;-)

According to today's Silicon Strategies (SJ Merc News) article, HP had
to pledge $3B (that's _billion_) toward future development of Itanium
servers as part of its price to get out of Dodge. ;-) Is that what
you mean by "it is now Intel's complete responsibility to develop
Itanium"?


"HP will continue to use Itanium chips in its servers and will pledge
$3 billion over the next three years in developing Itanium as a
competitor in the $20 billion high-end server market," according to
the report.

I don't think that money is going to develop Itanium _chips_. Instead,
it's going to develop systems based on those chips.

Which gives some indication of how easy to use the Itanium is.

Yeah, but that's simply to sustain its own Itanium server division for
the next few years, so Intel doesn't look like Don Quixote. It's like
Intel can continue to point out that it's still got real customers for
its chip, and that it isn't simply stubbornly continuing to produce
Itaniums just to spite the world.

otoh, it may represent the total value of Itanium-based business HP marketing
is signing up to generate over the next three years...

You gotta believe there are a whole bunch of HP engineers that feel that way
right about now :-(

Fully agree. However, unfortunate as it is, that's life in the fast lane.
Been there - done that, but somehow survived (and if I knew how, I'd sell
it and live next to Billy).

I'll let him tell me I'm all wet in my reading, but I didn't see any irony
at all. "I honestly think" and "having HP draped all over" doesn't imply
irony at all. ...rather I infer ignorance.
