The Alpha Chip becomes a Collector's Item
Posted Tue July 03, 2001 @08:24AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Hardware In a deal announced June 25, Compaq and Intel have joined to "Accelerate Enterprise Server Roadmaps". Under the agreement, Compaq will:
  • transition all 64-bit technical workstations, departmental servers, and enterprise class servers to Intel Itanium processors by 2004
  • port and support Tru64 UNIX, OpenVMS and NonStop Kernel operating systems and development tools on Itanium
  • transfer significant Alpha microprocessor and compiler technology, tools and resources to Intel (in a non-exclusive manner)
  • will deliver an additional generation of Alpha technology (EV7) to advance system performance prior to the new generation of the Itanium-based systems
While some have embraced this as A Good ThingTM for low-cost high-powered computing, others mourn the loss of a chip which has lead the workstation performance race for 10 years. Some people suggest that this "event marks the beginning of a spiraling process of self-cannibalization by Compaq, similar to the final years of DEC".

If you would like to know what was killed in the now defunct Alpha EV8 project, check out this series of articles. [Part I] [Part II] [Part III]
