Universities to get Itanium systems

Hewlett-Packard and Intel announced they will give $2.5 million worth of Itanium-based workstations and servers to 40 universities worldwide for research. Universities have been one of the primary testing grounds for Itanium, the 64-bit server chip designed by both companies to compete against products from Sun Microsystems. Seeding academic environments is often viewed as a way to build momentum for products in the commercial marketplace.
