Intel: single-core performance boost

c|net’s News.com is reporting from the Gelato Itanium Conference and Expo in Singapore that Intel’s principal engineer of Itanium Processor Architecture said on Tuesday

“We have not abandoned single-core performance and we’re looking to increase that with each generation (of the Itanium processor) as we go forward, some with greater transitions than others.”

“There are some workloads that you just need to have single-core performance in order to carry and to get the job done, and those are the kinds of things we are targeting,” he said. “Not everything can scale and, truth be told, if you don’t address the single-core performance segment, you’re going to miss out on some opportunities.”
