Intel linked with HPC boost buy • The Register

Larabee is the code name for an Intel graphics card/chipset that was designed to compete against nVidia and AMD. One side benefit would be it could be used as a co-processor to accelerate software algorithms on desktop computers like nVidia’s CUDA architecture or Apple’s OpenCL. Sadly the only market left for Larabee might be High Performance Computing and even that doesn’t look so good.
