The Register has always made fun of sales of Intel's "Itanic", but I didn't realise quite how low they are:

Dell has become the latest OEM to abandon Itanium, Intel's ill-fated 64 bit chip. [...] ell's decision is hardly surprising given its poor sales figures. Dell lives or dies by high volumes, but last year shipped just 1,371 Itanium servers. That's up from just 12 the previous year, but it was enough to give Dell five per cent of the IA-64 market.

(emphasis mine -ajf)

That's just laughable.
