Tech Link (Industry): Intel Itanium gets US$10 billion new lease on life

Looks like detractors are going to cry again. Those who always prophesized the doom of Intel® Itanium® Processor will surely be weeping and shout in disbelief. Go sulk in the corner, Intel® Itanium® lives on! Well, if you ask the fanboy in me, who wouldn't fund something that has gained 70 solutions based on the architecture within the Fortune 100 corporations.

Despite rumors of its impending demise, Intel's Itanium received a US$10 billion new lease on life on January 26 in the US, according to several US-based media reports. The investment is a coup for the Itanium Solutions Alliance (ISA) that was founded in September last year. The announcement happened at the organization's first Executive League event, which was held to lay out the strategy for Itanium solution delivery through the end of the decade.
