Since the itanium off loads a lot of its instruction steam decisions on
to the compiler(s), where other processors just do it, one might argue
that you can not even characterize the itanium without bundling in the
compilers...

Not to say that is wrong but just to make it clear that saying the
itanium speed is <X> is like saying that a cummings diesel is fast with
out saying what sort of car/truck it is mounted in.
