[softpedia] Intel's Larrabee Multi-Core Chip Will Rock on Games - Page 3

post #21 of 62
This basically confirms that the way of the GPU is headed towards complete fusion with the CPU. Both AMD and Intel realize that running x86 on GPUs is the way of the future. Of course we'll have to wait to see how receptive Larrabee is from the progamming side of things.

If you think Intel's only had the Core 2 Duo, you got some serious catching up to do. You have got to be like 7 or 8, max.
I guess he forgot the P3 era, and the P2 Era, were the Intel dominated. P4 was actually a great year for multimedia use, until the dual core came out.

lol thats what happens when people who were around only in the athlon age tries to post about cpu history. i still remember my apple 2e and ibm computers with their huge shoebox sized hard drives, or crouching over my orange juice at age 12 playing gorillas with my dad on qbasic. maybe i am just too old...

From what i tell this has none of the advantages that GPU use to be so powerful and all the disadvantages of a CPU doing graphics work. Depends on the down and dirty extreme details on whether or not this will be any good.

Nehalem is already coming with 8 core and 16 core variants
actually isn't the plan an 8 core 16 thread variant?
do please correct me if i'm wrong here

In my opinion, dual and quad cores are great and dandy, but coding for multithreaded apps is more difficult than just coding for 1 super fast proc.
I would like to think that the trends torward multicore is due to the fact that perhaps silicon has reached an impasse and can't get much past 5 GHZ realistically.--on a mainstream consumer market anyway.
I'm sure Intel is looking at other manufacturing methods side silicon, i couldn't really know what they're up to. But just throwing more cores onto a single chip will also reach it's limits someday.

**why the hell do i work at a steelyard again?**

I know that's kinda a stupid question, but sometimes stupid questions need to be asked.

Plus more cores might mean better performance, but part of me worries that the emphasis manufacturers put on more cores will eventually just result in having 1,000 sub-par cores. 'So what if this core sucks, we're gonna stick another 900 right next to it' kinda situation. Or even worse, you'll have a card with 1,000 perfect cores on it that will cost more than your whole computer does now; and since the technology will be out there game designers will design to those specs and those of us who can't afford that **** won't be able to keep up. Somewhat of a worse case scenario, but no one else seems to be thinking about that, so I thought I'd be the guinea pig.
Heat? Price?

The manufacturing process will have to be enhanced to increase yield. If they are starting with 16 chips, I doubt you will ever see thousands... at least not on 1 card. Perhaps in render farms or super computers.

I would love for Intel to release a card optimized for gaming and CAD programs.

Oh come on Intel, we are already having a bit of trouble keeping up with the $600+ prices for flagship video cards. I bet such a video card that Intel is coming up with would end up being $1000. That's just too much. No wonder PC gaming is on the decline.

Either way I hope this larrabee thing fails... hard.
Because if it succeeds both Nvidia and AMD are ****ed, and that means intel will pretty much own 100% of the market share in every computer component segment, which will not be good for prices, or for innovation.

We really don't want to see a Microsoft equivalent on the hardware side of PCs...
Let me see if I understand you right. You don't want incredible graphics performance (if that is indeed what happens) over graphics cards that will be already out at the time, without the requirement of a graphics card?

- AMD already makes CPUs, and can learn to do what the Larrabee does.

- NVidia can learn to make CPUs, and integrate graphics onto them.

I'm all for the advancement of technology, so I welcome stuff like this. It will require the graphics card industry to adapt, lower prices, and/or make stuff superior to Larrabee. As long as it is monitored by the gov't. I do agree we wouldn't want all graphics card companies closing up shop because of Intel.

Imagine buying a motherboard, CPU, ram, and no video card....and still having 2x the performance of people running quad-sli setups. Now, I'm not saying this is bound to happen, it certainly might not be the case. But if it is, I think I'd take the 2x performance, and the nice airflow in my case that is accompanies by not having 4 PCI slots worth of space taken up by cards (like I currently do). Imagine this in a laptop. And if they do this with graphics, I can imagine a physics chip (PPU) built in as well very soon. Ultimate gaming chip....
