Itanium Facts

64-bit Intel microprocessors

  • Itanium is the name of Intel processors for enterprise servers and high-performance computing (HPC) systems.
  • They are 64-bit microprocessors that implement the Intel Itanium architecture (formerly called IA-64).
  • The architecture originated at Hewlett-Packard (HP), and was later jointly developed by HP and Intel.
  • They are based on explicit instruction-level parallelism, in which the compiler decides which instructions to execute in parallel.
  • The first Itanium processor, codenamed Merced, was released in 2001.
  • An Itanium-based computer first appeared on the list of the TOP500 supercomputers in November 2001.
  • In 2010, Intel and HP signed another $250 million deal, which obliged Intel to continue making Itanium central processing units for HP's machines until 2017.
