Chip maker Intel Corp has released its IA-32 Execution Layer software for use in systems featuring the Intel Itanium 2 processor and a Microsoft Windows operating system.

The inclusion of the new software will reportedly increase the performance of several 32-bit software applications. This is achieved by integrating the IA-32 Execution Layer software into the operating system so that support for IA-32 applications is carried out at the software level, translating IA-32 application code into native Intel Itanium architecture code.

A spokesperson for Intel said that the increased application performance will encourage customers to migrate to Intel Itanium 2-based platforms running Windows.

No pricing details were revealed.
