I don't think you'll need Itanium anyway. If you really need one system with Itanium, SGI has planety. Of course it'll cost ya... Some Dell machines are really good. Buy I hate dell.

A 2ghz P4 Xeon 512k w/ Hyperthreading could make it far. Seems a single 2.0ghz P4 Xeon 512k can beat the $hit out of a 2ghz P4 and spank Dual MP's 1.2ghz.

Do you have links rcf? Last I heard the only 2ghz xeon out was the old core with NO additional enhancements save for the smp enabled....oh...and it was not doing too well in the benchmarks.

Read my post again i said A 2ghz P4 Xeon <font color=red>512k</font color=red> 512k chips are based of the 0.13micron if noticed all Northwoods are going to be 512k.

I think he may be referring to several rumors at The Register and Inquirer that Intel is developing their own X86-64 chip. This won't mean much unless they are much further along in development than they probably are. Yes, Intel has far more engineering resources, but AMD has a 2+ year headstart in developing X86-64. If Intel has been developing this for a year or more they may have something to go up against AMD's new chip within a reasonable timeframe of Hammer's release. Of course, this is all rumor and vapor, so take it as such. It's still interesting to add to the equation.

Can anyone guess how long will 64bit technology will last when it goes mainstream? My bet should be 15 to 20 years.

And that itanic...
It the worst disgrace to the transistor world.

Well I'm no expert on the past, but review how long 8-bit technology lasted, then 16-bit, and now the 32-bit. Has the time span increased or decreased?

I really think the Hammer is gonna hade the edge because it allows more of a transition from 32bit to 64bit technology, instead of just a big jump.

AMD's Hammer is gonna smash Intel :)

and what happens when the Itanium is developed further and is adopted as the standard 64-bit chip?

Not when dell is not selling them they wont, dell is intels bitch, and when they drop a product it sends a serious message.


http://www.vanshardware.com/


from the inquirer

"OVER AT VAN'S HARDWARE there was a story yesterday that Dell had decided demand for the Itanium workstation it's been selling is such that it's going to drop it. That' been confirmed by Dell now and you can find the original coverage here."

the here links to vans, so apprently its true, dell has officially dropped the itanium.
