Intel Corp. has reached an agreement with HP to hire HP's Intel Itanium processor design team based in Collins, Colorado. The deal strengthens Intel's investment in the Itanium architecture and bolsters the development of multi-core processors.

The agreement means that all Itanium processor design will be done by Intel. Aligning processor development is expected to augment the Itanium processor platform and accelerate broader industry adoption as the platform for servers entrusted to handle the most demanding workloads.

In a related announcement, HP extended its commitment to invest more than $3 billion over the next three years to help drive Intel Itanium 2-based Integrity server position in the $20 billion server market segment currently served by RISC processors. The investment spans R&D, server and system software design, partner-led application solutions, and sales and marketing.
