Itanium staff move of EPIC proportions
Tomorrow, it is expected that HP will announce the transfer
of an Itanium processor design team to Intel. After abandoning Itanium
workstation lines earlier this year, this narrows HP's involvement with
Itanium to nearly nothing and puts an end to its 16 year joint
venture with Intel to develop Itanium's EPIC architecture. The Intel
handover also marks the second, (arguably the third
HP processor family to be cut under the watch of CEO Carly "Cat o'
Nine Tails" Fiorina.
