Intel to Produce High-end GPU

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

Here is an insert from CNET News…

“Intel, never one to shrink from competition, announced that it would enter, by 2010, the market for high-end graphics chips. The chip, code-named Larrabee, would give Nvidia and AMD something to think about. And that’s about all they could do since the chip–at least initially–was merely a paper tiger.”

The say it wont be a GPU as many people are thinking it will be, but it will be made up of many processor cores. It will look and act like a GPU, carrying out many functions of a conventional gamer graphics card. Larrabee will work with most games, because it doesn’t rely on a specific graphics API.

Interesting news, but well have to keep our eyes on this one.

Currently AMD-ATI / NVIDIA own 98% of the GPU Business.
