Intel seems to have been concentrating mostly on their x86 line in the past few years, with Itanium not getting a lot of updates, and some of the scheduled updates being delayed...
But here they are at last then, the new Itanium processors:
Up to 4 cores (8 threads) and 24 MB L3 cache.
Like Nehalem, they also use Quickpath rather than an FSB now.

Time to see if there's life left in the Itanium architecture :)
