Issue No. 05 - September/October (2000 vol. 20)
The press and the technical community have generated much excitement and speculation about the IA-64 instruction set and the Itanium processor. Intel and Hewlett-Packard have rolled out (one instruction at a time) the instruction set. Intel is rolling out (one transistor at a time) the Itanium processor and other platform components. This special issue provides the broad technical community with a comprehensive introduction to the concepts and mechanisms that form the basis of the IA-64 instruction set and the related Itanium processor products.
