Montvale Processor Ready for Manufacturing

New Itanium 2 processors will be introduced around Halloween

September 4, 2007 - The Montvale processor, an update to the current Itanium 2 Montecito series, is ready for production. At a Novell event on virtualization in London, Richard George, Intel's Itanium marketing manager for EMEA, said Montecito has been released for manufacturing. In fact, some European customers are already deploying the new processor.

According to George, Montecito is two months ahead of schedule. Now that would be a surprise indeed, since Itanium has been delayed, sometimes for years, since its conception. The new Itanium 2 processors will be announced officially between October 28 and November 3, but it won't be Halloween.
