Chip Giant Hints at HPC Project, Clarifies Graphics Plans

Intel will continue with its efforts to enhance the graphics capabilities of its CPUs, but the chip maker will not release a “Larrabee”-like discrete graphics processor any time soon.
However, Kircos says Intel will continue enhancing the graphics capabilities of its CPUs, and Intel officials at the International Supercomputing show will outline a high-performance computing effort created from the work with Larrabee and many-core processors.

In a [email protected] blog post May 25, Intel spokesperson Bill Kircos said the company will increase spending and manpower in the area of graphics, and hinted at a new effort born out of the Larrabee program and Intel’s efforts in many-core CPU technologies that will focus on the HPC (high-performance computing) and supercomputing spaces.
