This simply isn't true. Itanium and Itanium 2 have full x86 hardware
built into the chip (for better or worse ;-). The speed isn't as good
as the fastest x86 chips today, but it's faster (~300MHz P6) than the
PCs many of us are using and it certainly meets my needs better than
any other x86 "emulation" I have used in the past (which includes
FX!32 and its relatives for Alpha).
