Dell is phasing out its Intel Itanium-based servers, as it chooses to concentrate on lower-cost models.

Dell will instead concentrate on promoting Intel-based servers that use the cheaper Xeon processor.

Hewlwtt-Packard is the biggest seller of Itanium-based servers, with companies such as Fujitsu, Hitachi and NEC among the other leading Itanium server suppliers.

Intel has now mainly aimed Itanium at large multi-processor server platforms, a market that Dell has shown little interest in.

Despite the modest take-up of Itanium in the processor overall market, Intel recently outlined a long-term product roadmap for Itanium processors, including the first dual-core Itanium chip expected later this year.

This product will double the processing performance of current Itanium chips.
