Intel looks to Summit to bring chips to new heights

Author: JT Smith

eWEEK: "Intel Corp. will use IBM server technology as one
of the validation platforms to test its upcoming Intel Xeon MP
processor and its next-generation processors, currently code-named
McKinley.

Intel is testing its 32- and 64-bit processors using IBM's Summit
chip-set technology, its high-end interconnect technology
developed for mainframes and supercomputers, which would result in
far greater SMP (symmetric multiprocessing) performance and
scalability, Bill Zeitler, senior vice president of IBM's server group,
told delegates at the company's Solutions technical developers
conference here Wednesday."
