Quad Larrabee : Intel’s Answer To Nvidia’s Domination?

According to a roadmap VR-Zone has seen, the second generation Larrabee might have a chance against Nvidia’s future offerings in 2010-11 with a new architecture, many more cores on 32nm process technology and Quad Larrabee cards support. Clearly, Intel’s strategy here is to increase the number of cores per GPU and increase the number of Larrabee GPUs supported per platform. This is possible due to their advanced fab and process technology, an area which fabless Nvidia has little control over and has to rely on TSMC’s process technology. Indeed, we are eager to see the first hint of Larrabee performance on the current and future games.

Nvidia is counter-attacking Intel on their upcoming Larrabee GPU calling it a
PowerPoint slide and facing constant delays according to a
CNET interview
with Jen-Hsun Huang. Most probably, the first generation Larrabee will face a
tough going against the Nvidia’s GT200 series and beyond. However, according to
