Vigile writes: The details of Intel's CPU/GPU hybrid project known as Larrabee have been slowly leaking out over the past 12 months including news that it was based on older x86 cores, that rasterization was a primary focus and that it would use a vector-extended x86 ISA. Now we have our first detailed look at a Larrabee die that shows a 32-core design that could reach as high as a 2.5 TFlops based on clock speed predictions. The move to a 2010 release schedule has also been confirmed by Intel as it seems they are still struggling to see similar levels of efficiency to GPUs from NVIDIA and AMD.
