Modifies multi-core architecture instead of Itanium

B) The fastest processor from Intel, Itanium has a multi-core architecture that handles data compression on a PC as efficiently as the perfectly balanced engine of the Porsche handles curves on the road.
1) correctly modify Itanium.
2) correct comparison.

C) Itanium's multi-core architecture, the fastest processor from Intel, handles data compression on a PC as efficiently as the Porsche's perfectly balanced engine handles curves on the road.

D) The [color=#ff0000]multicore architecture
of Itanium, the fastest processor from Intel, handles data compression on a PC as efficiently as the Porsche, the perfectly balanced engine, handles curves on the road.
wrong comparison

E) The fastest processor from Intel, Itanium has a multi-core architecture that handles data compression on a PC as efficiently as the handling of curves on the road by the perfectly balanced engine of the Porsche.

A and C are out for modifier error.

In D the perfectly balanced engine is incorrectly modifying porsche

E is not parallel.

No error in B

I have a question regarding the answer choice B (the correct answer).

"The fastest processor from Intel, Itanium has a multi-core architecture that handles data compression on a PC as efficiently as the perfectly balanced engine of the Porsche handles curves on the road."

Shouldn't "Itanium" be set off by commas both before and after? I would say both "The fastest processor" and "Itanium" may be considered modifiers, and either one may be omitted from the sentence, or am I wrong?

Thanks!

Edit: Just realized that the comma would not be necessary if the sentence was viewed as "[Being] The fastest processor, Itanium..."
