IDC Says Linux Server Market Grew 36 Percent in Q4 2004
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

The growing adoption of Linux as a server platform is helping push the X86 server market to new heights and is similarly propping up the sales of non-X86 platforms that support Linux. According to market research from IDC, sales of X86 servers were up 14.4 percent in the fourth quarter of 2004 to $6.3 billion as unit shipments increased by 16.8 percent to 1.6 million X86 units shipped. Interestingly, 25 percent of the X86 servers that shipped in the fourth quarter has 64-bit main memory support from either Intel or AMD. READ MORE >


Intel Goes Whole Hog for Multicore Chips
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

The top brass at Intel last week mapped out the multicore future of the company's mobile, desktop, and server processors that will allow it to continue to innovate along founder Gordon Moore's famed 1965 law of doubling transistor count every 18 months or so. Intel is falling in behind other industry players in the RISC/Unix market, who correctly reckoned several years ago that cranking up clock speeds could not be the means to increase performance because of practical thermal limits on our desktops and in corporate data centers.

Intel Maps Out Its Server Roadmap
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Brace yourself for the Intel's code-name blitz for platforms, processors, chipsets, and core technology underpinning it all. Intel recently reorganized itself into five different operating groups, and the new Digital Enterprise Group, headed up by co-general managers Pat Gelsinger and Abhi Talwalker, was the star of the first day of Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, California.

Intel Stands By Itanium, Positions It Against IBM's Power
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Launching the EM64T 64-bit memory extensions for the Pentium 4 and Xeon DP processors last year and the impending shipment of 64-bit Xeon MP processors this quarter has done nothing to stop the continued questioning about the long-term viability of the 64-bit Itanium processor. And at Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco last week, Intel executives once again found themselves defending the existence of Itanium in a 64-bit Xeon and Opteron world. READ MORE >
