Intel hired a lot of departed ATI software guys to tweak the drivers and the 3Dlabs people can be counted in hundreds.


It looks like Larrabee will launch as a workstation chip as its easier to make OpenGL driver that works the professional 3D application than both OpenGL and DirectX driver at the same time.
