"The buttock clenching starts with the launch of a 2.8GHz Xeon MP with 2MB of cache which will cost $3,692. The 2.0GHz/2MB Xeon MP fades away. Instead, we'll see a 2.5GHz/1MB costing $1,990, a 2.0GHz/1MB costing $1,177. At which point the existing big cache/cash MPs will fade out of view.
But the price of the Itanic II Madison, which may not be called the Itanic Madison on the 30th of June, when it launches, will not only make your buttocks clench but your jaws grind.
The 1.5GHz/6MB Itanic will cost $4,225, the 4MB (Deerfield) will cost $2,250, the 1.3GHz 3MB Itanitum II will cost $1,338.
And when Intel launches its low voltage Itanium 2 at 1GHz, and with 1.5MB of cache in Q3, that will cost $750. That chip is intended for dual processing configurations."
