Intel Counts on Third Time Charms, Performance with Madison
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Last Monday was the big day for the third generation of Intel's high-end 64-bit Itanium processor. With the "Madison" processors, as the chips are called internally, Intel seems to be finally hitting its stride in the 64-bit world, which has been dominated by the remaining RISC/Unix vendors--IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Sun Microsystems, and Fujitsu Siemens. The third time had better be the charm for Intel, which has pumped an estimated $5 billion of chip design and manufacturing technology into Itanium and has yet to get any substantial revenue stream from the processors.

Intel Cranks the Clock, Ups the Cache on 32-Bit Xeon MPs
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

The third generation of 64-bit Itanium chips, code-named "Madison" and announced last Monday, was getting lots of press. But Intel also has tweaked the "Gallatin" Pentium 4 Xeon MP processors, which are used in more than 60 different 32-bit servers, with four or more processors, made by its OEM partners worldwide. And the improvement in the Gallatin's performance will, ironically, make it somewhat more difficult to justify the move to the Itanium line. READ MORE >

HP Debuts Integrity Itanium Boxes, ProLiant Gets New Xeons
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Hewlett-Packard has almost as much at stake in the 64-bit Itanium processors from partner Intel, which launched the third-generation "Madison" processor last week, and perhaps that is why the company has devised a new brand, the HP Integrity servers, for the Itanium-based machines that it currently sells in small numbers but which will be, so HP hopes, an ever-increasing part of its future product sales in the enterprise server space.

Dell Starts Out Small with Madison Itanium Commitments
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

If you were expecting Dell to roll out an impressive line of Itanium-based workstations and servers just because Intel launched the third generation "Madison" Itanium 2 processors last week, you were probably disappointed. Dell is not yet ready to make a lot of noise in the 64-bit computing space and is sticking to its 32-bit knitting, with the exception of using two-way Itanium 2 servers it pigeon-holes into the high-performance-computing (HPC) market.

IBM's Summit-II xSeries Supports Madisons, Fast Gallatins
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

IBM last week rolled out a new Intel-based server, based on an improved version of its "Summit" EXA chipset. This new chipset, called "Summit-II" internally at Big Blue, will be used in a new line of xSeries servers that use the 32-bit "Gallatin" Pentium 4 Xeon MP processors from Intel. IBM also announced support in its xSeries 450 line of machines for the 64-bit "Madison" Itanium 2 processor, which Intel launched last week. READ MORE >

Unisys Adds New Intel Chips to ES7000 Wintel Servers
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

One of the key OEMs that will drive sales of Intel's Xeon MP and Itanium processors into the data center is Unisys, and it comes as no surprise that Unisys was ready to support the new 64-bit "Madison" Itanium 2 and faster 32-bit "Gallatin" Pentium 4 Xeon MP processors as soon as Intel launched them last week.

The story on W5 Technologies (in "But Wait, There's More," on June 4) originally contained several errors. The article incorrectly stated that Mark Blankenship was CEO of Shell Chemical Company; he is in fact a founder and former CEO of Icon Strategies. The article also originally misspelled Mark Blankenship's name. Guild Companies regrets the errors. [Corrections made 7/08/03]
