That was removed due to public outcry. Funny that Sun's chips all have it though. Noone's crying about that.

Its pretty impressive, I admit.. However, when you read the actual report, you'll see they compare the Itanium 800 with the "old" UltraSparc II 450 Mhz. I think it would have been more interesting to compare to the UltraSparc III 750 Mhz, since that cpu is already out for over 6 months. Kind of comparing a Atlhon with a Pentium II.. (
not that I suspect Sun would win the comparison with a Ultra III vs Itanium, but then SSL decoding is just *one* thing to measure.. A very specific one, and obviously one that is well suited to VLIW. Im curious what Itanium will bring in the future..

well, keep in mind Sun's chips are rarely sold to people for general use.
you're not gonna surf the web, check your email and such on an server like that regularly.
I don't mind it on my servers, but I don't want it on my personal computer.
Independant thought is good.
It won't hurt for long.
