C|Net has this nonplussing story:
The chip, and computers containing it, will compete against more expensive Reduced Instruction Set Computing (RISC) servers and workstations from Sun Microsystems, IBM and HP. Along with processors running at 800MHz and 733MHz, the Itanium boxes will tout such features as 32GB of memory--enough to store entire Web sites--and fairly large hard drives.I don't know what I would use it for but as a closet Xeon owner, I'm actually thinking of buying one or two.
Intel declined to comment on the specifics of the launch, but executives are clearly relieved the chip is finally coming out.
