Computer chip maker Intel on Tuesday launched a new series of processors, Itanium 9500, which the company claimed is over two-times faster than its previous generation processors.
The new Intel Itanium processor 9500 series is more than twice as powerful as the previous generation, making it ideal for today's most demanding workloads, including business analytics, database, and large-scale ERP applications, Intel said in a statement.
Systems based on Intel's Itanium processors run in more than three-quarters of the world's global 100 companies across industries such as aerospace, energy, life sciences and telecommunications, the company said.
With the Intel Itanium processor 9500 series, these industries will benefit from a leap in performance and increase in reliability, availability and serviceability capabilities, it said.
"Built on a new microarchitecture and providing breakthrough performance, the Intel Itanium 9500 processor family signals Intel's ongoing commitment to deliver unparallelled reliability to meet the critical application demands across all industries," Srinivasan Ramaprasad, Country Business Manager, MNC Accounts, Intel South Asia, claimed at a press conference here on Tuesday.
According to HP, based on HP enhancements and the Intel Itanium processor 9500 series, transactions are processed up to three times faster than previous generations, while using 21 percent less energy.
"Today's announcement demonstrates HP's continued commitment to transform the server landscape with innovations to the Integrity portfolio offered with a mission-critical converged infrastructure that will endure into the future,"
