Intel's Montecito is the first Itanium processor to feature duplicate, dual-thread cores and cache hierarchies on a single die. It features a landmark 1.72 billion transistors and server-focused technologies, and it requires only 100 watts of power. Intel's Itanium 2 processor series has regularly delivered additional performance through the increased frequency and cache as evidenced by the 6-Mbyte and 9-Mbyte versions.
