Intel to cut Itanium 2 range

By Derek Sooman on
Intel is to discontinue the production of eight Itanium 2 processors, as the company believes there is too much demand for higher performance products.

Chips up for extermination include the 1GHz and 1.4GHz dual-processor models, both with 1.5MB of L3 cache, 1.4GHz/3MB DP-oriented Itanic 2, the 1.1GHz/4MB, 1.3GHz/3MB, 1.4GHz/4MB, 1.5GHz/6M and 1.6GHz/3MB models, and three Xeon MP processors are getting the chop too (the 2.2GHz/2MB, 2.7GHz/2MB and 3GHz/4MB models.)
