    Intel and NEC announced that they've captured the top TCP-C (a benchmark from the Transaction Processing Performance Council) score with a 32-processor Itanium 2 system. The caveats are that the 308,620 transactions per minute score is the top score on a non-clustered Windows platform. Thus, we are to assume that there are UNIX, Linux, and/or clustered Windows servers that can outperform the NEC box; but for now, it still seems like a decent achievement. The NEC system uses 32 1GHz Itanium 2 processors, each with 3 MB of L3 cache. It featured 256 GB of memory, and used Windows .NET Server 2003 Datacenter Edition and MS SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Edition (64-bit) beta version. The system from NEC will not be sold until "December 31, 2002." To me, that sounds a lot like "early 2003," unless a bunch of NEC sales staff are going to work late into New Year's eve hurriedly packing and ... haha, I couldn't even finish that one. This does go to show that the Itanium can perform--at least with Windows. That alone may capture some marketshare for those companies that want to disregard UNIX/Linux.
