Intel's Server Roadmap

We relay the delay

Updated Following Intel's decision to delay the arrival of its multi-way Xeon server chips until Q4, we felt it was time to update what we reckon is the company's release schedule.

The changes are minor, we're afraid: Intel reiterated some long-ago mentioned details of the next couple of generations of Itanium, which we've added to the list.

We also added Galatin, the 0.13 micron die-shrink of the 0.18 micron Foster multi-way sever chips.

Oh, and if you happen have a copy of Intel's latest server roadmaps, feel free to mail a copy here.
