The HP announcement is interesting considering HP's partnership with Intel in actually 'developing' the Itanium. It shows a smart company covering all their bases.

That ArsTechnica article is very good. I especially like this part :[quote]This brings us to the Pentium M. The PM takes one of the P4's strengths--its branch prediction capabilities--and improves on it, adding its advantages to the strengths of the P6 architecture. The PM also deepens the P6's pipeline a bit, allowing for better clockspeed scaling, but without making clockspeed the central factor driving performance. In short, the PM looks like what the P4 might have been, had Intel not been so obsessed with the MHz race--it's a kind of alternate past, but one that may provide a glimpse of Intel's future.[/quote]

Hadn't read that. That's kind of eye-opening. Thanks for pointing it out Didou. :)
