"Hewlett-Packard Company today unveiled its plans to incorporate Intel's Merced processor into its high-end server product lines by mid-2000. HP's system architecture expertise, coupled with IA-64's parallel processing, will make these servers ideal e-services platforms, addressing the needs of the high-end computing environment."
"HP intends to support HP-UX(1), the 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows, and Linux on its Merced systems, and MPE/iX on its future IA-64 systems."
"Customers' existing PA-RISC applications can run unchanged on Merced and future IA-64 systems due to HP's collaboration with Intel on the 64-bit instruction set architecture. In addition, IA-32 applications will also run unchanged on the Merced-based systems."
