Sun targets HP customers

Posted by Mike on Feb 11, 2004

According to The Register, Sun says HP customers are ripe for the picking. Due to the slow adoption rate of Itanium (x86 running in emulation mode), the increase in popularity of AMD Opteron (x86-64), HP’s migration from their PA-RISC to Itanium (HP PA-8800 is the second-to-last chip for HP’s Precision Architecture), and Intel supposedly releasing a new chip that is capable of x86-64 (no x86 emulation, codename Yamhill), HP customers are left confused and overwhelmed.
