Intel backs away from Itanium, plans Xeon drop-in chips

Future motherboards will support Itanium or Xeon.

fellix_bg has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
The founding issue with Itanium is that its EPIC architecture philosophy is simply too far removed from the modern trends in the industry, like power efficiency, uniform top-down scalability (from mobile to server) and broad software compatibility. And the thing is just too expensive to build, since to be an efficient ISA it needs a ton of cache memory to keep the static scheduled wide pipeline fed with data and instructions.

And a ton of cache is what it does have. Since these are premium chips it doesn't matter that Intel has to spend more die area on cache - the customer pays for it anyway.
