Ars Technica - Intel's Larrabee GPU will finally go into commercial production next year, but not as a graphics processor. Instead, the part will make its debut in a 50-core incarnation fabbed on Intel's 22nm and aimed squarely at one of the fastest growing and most important parts of NVIDIA's business: math coprocessors for high-performance computing (HPC).
Intel is indicating that it will be easier for academics and high performance computing application users to port their current X86 applications to the MIC architecture than it is to port to Nvidia GPGPUs.
