Linux supercomputers eat Itanium

"Quadrics, which manufactures gear that links numerous Linux computers into a single supercomputer, has made its products compatible with systems built around Intel's Itanium 2 chip.

The Bristol, England-based company now offers its network cards and software for Itanium 2 systems as well as for setups based on Intel's Xeon processor, the company said Wednesday. The added support for Xeon-based systems is a less dramatic shift since Xeons use the same software as the Pentium III chips Quadrics already supported."
