Ah, the austin rumor mill.
According to a friend of mine who works at AMD:
1) Intel licensed that hyper-transport thing when they licensed x86-64
2) Dell gave people refunds on the few itanium machines they actually managed
to sell. (I believe the number I heard was a total of about two hundred and
fifty total itanium "development" systems sold...)
There would appear to be a distinct trend here, but you know rumors... :)
