Intel Corp. and Hewlett Packard may postpone the public update of the Itanium microprocessor roadmap because of certain reasons, a source with knowledge of the matter said. As Intel relocates Itanium development teams to Xeon central processing units in order to strengthen competitive positions of its primary server chip, HP seems to be in confusion regarding its own strategy.

On the hardware level, the new Intel Xeon and Intel Itanium processors are very similar – they use similar point-to-point links, memory technology and other components – but on the software level they are completely different. Hardware-wise, HP could transit its Integrity and Superdome mission-critical servers to Xeon in a year.
