This book is both a professional reference and a textbook based on a new 64-bit Explicitly Parallel Instruction Computing (EPIC) architectural design, the Itanium processor developed by Intel in partnership with Hewlett-Packard. The Itanium processor represents a thoroughly new design, supports open-source as well as proprietary 64-bit operating systems, and has been selected by several companies as the successor to their present RISC processors.
