the most sophisticated Intel processor ever. It is called Itanium 9500 and does not equip PCs or ultrabooks, but the large Unix mainframes. composed of 3.1 billion transistors. One of the most interesting aspects is the technological leap that this processor represents compared to the previous family with the transition from the 65-nanometer production process to the 32-nanometer one. The Itanium 9500 range ranges from a solution operating at 1.73 GHz with a TDP of 130W and a 2.53 GHz model with a TDP of 170W. The Itanium 9.500 supports up to eight cores and according to Intel, thanks to several structural changes, allows two and a half times improvements. In a few months, the first Itanium 9500-based "Poulson" servers will arrive in the coming months will surely be on the market solutions Hitachi, HP, and NEC.
