Madison 9M To Arrive On Nov 9th

Intel’s newest top-line Itanium 2 processor, Madison 9M with 9MB of cache is due to arrive Nov. 8. In addition, Intel is expected to update the rest of its Itanium 2 family, adding a lower-end model for dual-processor servers and a low-voltage model for servers that are packed densely together. SGI had said Columbia could perform 42.7 trillion calculations per second, or 42.7 teraflops. But an unpublished test that included the new Itanium 2 9M processors clocked the machine at 51.9 teraflops. The newer chips in Columbia boost software performance significantly with a 30 to 40 percent improvement in some of the codes.
