Sales of Hewlett-Packard’s business critical systems (BCSs) powered by Intel Corp.’s Itanium central processing unit hit their six-year low in the second quarter of HP’s fiscal year. In addition to global economy slowdown, the reason for the decline of sales is conditioned by customers’ reluctance to buy systems based on IA64 architecture, which many believe is approaching its end-of-life.
Intel's 64-bit dies while AMD's 64-bit is thriving in all x86-64 CPU's that are made both by AMD, Intel(and VIA?)...
I wonder if Xeon Phi's will die because of HSA/hUMA?
Xeon Phi are co-processors(similar to GPU's) and cost around 1000$ and have about 1 teraflops of pure/raw performance while Xbox One and PlayStation 4 chips are about 1/10 or 1/9 of the price of Xeon Phi and offer 1.3(XBone) and 1.8(PS4) Teraflops.
You see what I did there? Agreed?
