SAN FRANCISCO—Intel Corp. on Wednesday presented a broad overview of its enterprise processor roadmap here at the Intel Developer Forum. The company's forthcoming lineup featured a slew of new code names for the 64-bit Itanium processor.

Mike Fister, vice president and general manager of Intel's enterprise group appeared made a special effort to detail Intel's Itanium shipment data, in light of the company's Tuesday's disclosure of 64-bit extensions for its Xeon line on Tuesday.

According to Fister, Intel shipped about 100,000 Itanium units last year. "[A hundred thousand] in a risk-managed environment is a lot," Fister said, attempting to quell doubts that the technology has struggled.

Fister also invited senior executives from Dell Computer Corp., Hewlett-Packard Corp., and IBM on stage to testify to the success of Itanium in their businesses.

Fister outlined a detailed Itanium roadmap through 2005 as additional proof that the architecture's future rests on solid ground.
