Intel released some more details about their hybrid VPU architecture dubbed Larrabee.
The many-core x86 solution is aimed at competing against NVIDIA and ATI graphics cards at the high-end. Intel is supposed to release Larrabee some when next year.
Hexus has published an overview of the Larrabee architecture. The deep details are still held back by Intel though.
Quote: "Essentially, Intel's Larrabee attempts to solve the problem of massive throughput needed for next-generation VPUs by using the good ol' x86 microprocessor in a many-core configuration, along with dedicated logic - co-processors, if you will - where it's deemed to be more efficient at completing set tasks.
Importantly, the Larrabee design includes a flexible, math-intensive 16-wide vector processing unit to increase the number of instructions processed per clock. "
