SAMENVATTING

  • De Intel Itanium processor 9500 biedt een zeer hoge beschikbaarheid en foutbestendigheid, evenals aanzienlijke prestatieverbeteringen ten opzichte van de vorige generatie
  • Dankzij het dubbele aantal cores op een nieuwe architectuur, biedt de Intel Itanium processor 9500 series tot 2,4 maal de prestaties en een 33 procent hogere I/O-snelheid ten opzichte van de vorige generatie. Daarnaast zijn er nieuwe mogelijkheden, zoals Intel Instruction Replay Technology
  • Toekomstige generaties Intel Itanium processors zullen gebruikmaken van een innovatief ‘modulair ontwikkelmodel’ dat zorgt voor meer overeenkomsten tussen Intel Itanium en de Intel Xeon processor E7-familie, van gemeenschappelijke elementen op de chip tot volledige socket-compatibiliteit. Dit betekent meer mogelijkheden voor de verdere ontwikkeling van Itanium en meer flexibiliteit voor partners van Intel

Kontich, 8 november 2012 – In deze tijd waarin het datagebruik ongekend sterk groeit, hebben organisaties zeer krachtige automatiseringsoplossingen nodig. Computersystemen met het prestatievermogen en de bedrijfszekerheid voor de meest bedrijfskritische toepassingen. De nieuwe Intel Itanium processor 9500 serie is ruim twee maal zo krachtig als de voorgaande generatie. Daarmee zijn deze processors bij uitstek geschikt voor de meest veeleisende taken, waaronder bedrijfsanalyse-, database- en grootschalige ERP-toepassingen. Systemen gebaseerd op Intels Itanium processors worden momenteel gebruikt door ruim driekwart van de 100 grootste bedrijven ter wereld, onder andere in de lucht- en ruimtevaart, de energiesector, de gezondheidszorg en de telecommunicatiesector. Met de Intel Itanium processor 9500 serie kunnen deze sectoren rekenen op aanzienlijk hogere prestaties en verbeteringen op het gebied van betrouwbaarheid, beschikbaarheid en beheerbaarheid (‘Reliability, Availability and Serviceability’; RAS).

De Intel Itanium processor 9500 serie is Intels meest geavanceerde generieke processor tot nu toe, met 3,1 miljard transistors. Er worden tot twee maal zo veel cores ondersteund als in de vorige generatie: 8 cores (in plaats van 4). Verder is de chip voorzien van 54MB geheugen en wordt 2TB aan geheugen ondersteund. De snelheid van de processor ligt 40 procent hoger dan bij de vorige generatie, in configuraties met een lager stroomverbruik. De nieuwe frequenties variëren van 1,73GHz en een stroomverbruik van 130 watt, tot 2,53GHz bij 170 watt.

New Intel Itanium processor 9500 delivers breakthrough capabilities for mission-critical computing

Based on new microarchitecture, Intel Itanium processor doubles performance and boosts resiliency

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS

  • The Intel Itanium processor 9500 delivers unprecedented availability, error resiliency and performance increase over the previous generation.
  • With twice the number of cores on a new architecture, the Intel Itanium processor 9500 series will provide up to 2.4 times performance scaling1 and 33 percent faster I/O speed over the previous generation, with new capabilities such as the Intel Instruction Replay Technology.
  • Future generations of Intel Itanium processors will adopt an innovative “Modular Development Model” that enables deeper commonality between Intel Itanium and the Intel Xeon processor E7 family, from shared silicon design elements to full-socket compatibility. This will provide a more sustainable path for Itanium development and greater design flexibility for Intel’s partners.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 8, 2012 – In an era of unprecedented growth in data usage, businesses require powerful computing solutions that can deliver scalable and resilient performance to run IT’s most mission-critical applications. 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 enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications. 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. With the Intel Itanium processor 9500 series, these industries will benefit from a leap in performance and an increase in world-class reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) capabilities.

“In a world where businesses are increasingly dependent on IT for their competitive advantage, more and more business applications are rightfully called “mission critical”; they must be always available, highly responsive and extremely reliable. It’s for precisely these computing workloads that we’ve developed the Intel Itanium 9500 processor,” said Diane Bryant, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Datacenter and Connected Systems Group. “Built on a new microarchitecture and providing breakthrough performance, the Intel Itanium 9500 processor family signals Intel’s ongoing commitment to deliver unparalleled reliability, availability and scalability to meet the critical application demands across all industries.”

Enterprise Performance with World-Class Availability

Containing 3.1 billion transistors, the Intel Itanium processor 9500 series is Intel’s most sophisticated general purpose processors to date. It supports up to twice as many cores (8 instead of 4) than the previous-generation processor, packs up to 54 MB of on-die memory, and enables up to 2 TB of low voltage DIMMs in a four-socket configuration. The speed of the processor increased 40 percent over the previous generation in lower power configurations. The new frequencies range from 1.73 GHz and a power level of 130 watts, to 2.53 GHz at a power level of 170 watts.

Delivering the highest levels of Intel Itanium performance, the new processors enable highly scalable deployments with world-class availability for data-intensive applications where downtime is not an option. These include ERP, supply chain management and customer relationship management (CRM) software.

Modular Development Model Provides More Flexibility

In 2010, Intel introduced its common platform strategy that allows Intel Itanium and Intel Xeon processors to utilize common platform ingredients including chipsets, interconnects and memory. This strategy gives Intel the ability to cascade the strength of Intel Itanium RAS features to benefit the Intel Xeon processor E7 family, and allows Intel Itanium to further extract the efficiencies and value of higher volume economics. For the next-generation Intel Itanium product family, code-named “Kittson,” Intel will employ an innovative model for Intel Itanium and Intel Xeon development called “Modular Development Model.” The model will extend the common platform strategy by sharing silicon-level design elements and socket compatibility. The result for Intel is an even more sustainable path to bring future Itanium processors to market. In addition, OEMs will be able to develop one single motherboard platform for both architectures.

Industry Support

Intel Itanium processors continue to maintain strong industry support among systems makers such as Bull, Hitachi, HP, Inspur and NEC. Enterprise applications are widely available from multiple vendors, such as, Oracle, SAP, SAS, Sybase and Temenos, among other vendors that underscore the ISV community’s efforts to ensure the success of the Intel Itanium mission-critical ecosystem.

“A mission-critical IT infrastructure with resiliency, scalability and high availability is critical to the success of enterprises,” said Ric Lewis, vice president and interim general manager, Business Critical Systems, HP.  “The addition of the Intel Itanium processor 9500 series to our newly enhanced HP Integrity and HP-UX portfolio provides breakthrough performance, increased productivity and delivers on HP’s commitment to provide our customers with investment protection.”

“NEC has been working with Intel more than 15 years to build enterprise servers based on Intel Itanium processors,” said Kazuaki Iwamoto, vice president and senior general manager of IT hardware operations unit, NEC Corporation. “We are pleased to provide our customers with the new enterprise servers based on Intel Itanium processor 9500 series for their highly scalable and mission critical systems.”

Pricing and Availability

The Intel Itanium processor 9500 series is available now and is priced from $1,350 to $4,650 in quantities of 1,000 units.
