Intel® Itanium® Processor 9500 Series

A powerful platform for virtualization and consolidation

Ideal for today’s most demanding workloads

Large‐scale enterprise resource planning (ERP) and data warehousing. Database applications and business analytics. The new Intel® Itanium® processor 9500 series features a brand‐new microarchitecture that delivers breakthrough Intel Itanium performance, reliability, and power enhancements for mission‐critical computing.

With eight redesigned cores, 32 MB of last‐level cache, and a maximum thermal power of 170 W, the Intel Itanium processor 9500 is ideal for the most demanding ERP, supply chain managment (SCM), customer relationship management (CRM), and other high‐availability workloads.

Its advanced Explicitly Parallel Instruction Computing (EPIC) architecture allows compilers to specify, schedule, and exploit the many forms of parallelism inherent in user programs. The result? The most power‐optimized and efficient Intel Itanium processor yet.

Ultimate Resiliency Capabilities


Automatic recovery

Help prevent system crashes and data corruption with Intel® Instruction Replay technology1, which automatically detects and corrects soft errors in the instruction pipeline. Error correction occurs in as few as seven clock cycles—fast enough to be invisible to your system’s software.

Dual‐domain multi‐threading

Intel® Hyper‐Threading Technology2, now enhanced with dual‐domain multi‐threading support, increases system throughput by allowing multiple threads to run on each core. It dynamically adapts to high‐volume workloads for consistent, always‐on performance.

Extended power efficiency

Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.03 helps processor cores run faster by managing current, power, and temperature to deliver a higher processor boost frequency at all times. The results are higher thermal‐envelope utilization and better overall performance.

Product and Performance Information


1. Some features are supported fully in silicon and are performed automatically and transparently. Others require additional support from the firmware, platform, or OS and may not be supported in all systems.

2. Available on select Intel® Core™ processors. Requires an Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology) enabled system. Consult your PC manufacturer. Performance will vary depending on the specific hardware and software used. For more information including details on which processors support HT Technology, visit www.intel.com/content/www/my/en/architecture-and-technology/hyper-threading/hyper-threading-technology.html.

3. Intel® Turbo Boost Technology requires a system with Intel Turbo Boost Technology capability. Consult your PC manufacturer. Performance varies depending on hardware, software, and system configuration.
