Intel Once Again Delays Itanium Chip

After multiple delays, Intel on Thursday once again pushed back the release of its next-generation Itanium server chip to the first quarter of 2010.

The Itanium chip, code-named Tukwila, was originally due for release by the middle of this year. Tukwila is being delayed for certain “application scalability” enhancements that Intel wants to make to the chip architecture, the company said in a statement. The chip maker declined to elaborate on the type of enhancements it plans to make.

During system testing, the company saw an opportunity to enhance the architecture for “highly threaded workloads where contention for system resources plays a dominant role in application scalability,” said Patrick Ward, an Intel spokesman.
