Tukwila, we are almost there

less than 1 minute read

It seems that finally and after a myriad of delays Tukwila, the brand new quad-core Itanium processor from Intel, is going to be released. Yesterday through its Chip Shots bulletin board, Intel announced that “Tukwila (…) has begun revenue shipments” and a Q1 launch has to be expected.

There have been reports about an announcement by Intel next Monday, February 8th, during the ISSCC. The same place and date chosen by IBM to presents its new POWER7.

I really hope that Intel finally release Tukwila during ISSCC. This processor will be the core of a brand new line of HP Integrity servers and that means more work for me ;-)
