After they started targeting really big die sizes (larrabee was the biggest semiconductor chip ever produced, in the 700mm^2 range) they just transitioned to HPC products and many core x86 based designs. The project just changed from something that could have been used as a graphics chip as well to something that's a purely HPC design.
How Intel secured the Chinese Supercomputer Deal (feat. Ivy Bridge-EP + Xeon Phi)
Great read.

Following the TACC deal, where Intel sold the Xeon Phi boards for mediocre $400, the calculation for this deal is even worse. According to sources in the know, the processors are going for less than $300, while Xeon Phis will also fit the sub $300 bracket. This deal will net less than $250 per piece of silicon. When you look at the pricing model, it is clear as day that Intel won't even cover the manufacturing cost – but this is a prestige deal, after all. Also, they will earn some nice dollars off the special warranty arrangements.
