Computer chip maker Intel today 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 today.

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 per cent less energy.
