Introduction

This page describes the Intel IA-64, aka Itanium, variant of Fedora. The ia64 CPU is used in high end servers built by HP , NEC, Bull, Inspur, Huawei and others. This is not to be confused with x86_64 or em64t which are 64 bit extension of the x86 processor. While early versions of ia64 had the ability to run x86 binaries current models only allow x86 binary compatibility via software emulation.
