Intel Larrabee Based Graphics Card Coming in 2010 Still
Intel has made a rare public comment on the unreleased Larrabee Based Graphics Card by saying that they are still working on it and that it will be coming out in 2010. Recent rumors have claimed that Larrabee is having some problems when it comes to power (TDP) and the software drivers, but the same rumor starters have also stated that Intel is working on a couple other cards right now as well.
Nick Knupffer who works at Intel Global Communications manager has told Fudzilla that “We [Intel] are working on the very 1st version of Larrabee, a new many-core instantiation of the Intel Architecture. There have not been previous versions, those allegations are quite frankly nonsensical rubbish.” We are currently working on the very 1st Larrabee product and this Product is due for a 2010 launch, Nick continues. Since Larrabee 3 and 4 have been mentioned a few times by both people very close to Nvidia and ATI, we guess that if Intel is right, these people from the graphics competition have to be very wrong. You can believe what you want to believe but in case Intel had taped out three chips so far, it would not be happy to share that with the rest of the world.
