Intel Corp. said this week that its forthcoming Itanium processor code-named Montecito with two processing engines delivers world’s record performance in LINPACK benchmark, which measures floating point speed. The claim should prove the power of dual-core Intel Itanium chip and create rush around Intel’s dual-core products.

Using the LINPACK benchmark, a system with four dual-core Itanium processors exceeded 45 GFLOPs (gigaflops), a measure of computer speed where a gigaflop is 1 billion floating-point operations per second. The previous record was 27.5 GFLOP, Intel indicated.
