Intel replans its strategy

Facing strong competition from rival Advanced Micro Devices Inc., chip-maker Intel Corp. modified its plans for upcoming server microprocessors, starting in 2007.

Intel affirmed it has canceled a Xeon processor that was scheduled to be released in 2007 and will replace it with another that improves communication with other chips in the system. The new chip, code-named Tigerton, is set to be released in 2007.

"We have the opportunity to deliver better performance in 2007," said Intel spokeswoman Erica Fields. "Therefore, we are canceling a product and replacing it with something else."

The change comes as Intel is being pressured by AMD's server processors that incorporate more efficient chip-to-chip communication. AMD has seen its share of the server market grow as its chips have generally outperformed Intel's offerings.

Fields declined to provide specifics on the new dedicated, high-speed "interconnect" that will be part of Tigerton or describe how it differs from what's being offered by AMD's Opteron processor.

Intel also announced that it is delaying the high-volume release of an update to its Itanium chip for high-end servers. That chip, code-named Montecito, will be shipped in volume in the middle of next year rather than early 2006, Fields said.

Itanium was developed over a decade by Intel and Hewlett-Packard Co., but its sales have never matched expectations. Both companies, however, have remained committed to it, the AP reports.

V.Y.

A year after the constitutional referendum of December 4th, 2016 that saw the victory of the NAY and the blatant defeat of the government front that had proposed the referendum, it can be said with certainty that the trauma for the defeated is now past. But there is still fear in them, not so hidden either...

Italy: Free fall

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
