Intel was quick to deny both of our stories about Larrabee 3 and Larrabee 4 with an official statement.
Nick Knupffer who works at Intel Global Communications manager has told Fudzilla that “We [Intel] are working on the very 1st version of Larrabee, a new many-core instantiation of the Intel Architecture. There have not been previous versions, those allegations are quite frankly nonsensical rubbish.”
We are currently working on the very 1st Larrabee product and this Product is due for a 2010 launch, Nick continues.
Since Larrabee 3 and 4 have been mentioned a few times by both people very close to Nvidia and ATI, we guess that if Intel is right, these people from the graphics competition have to be very wrong.
You can believe what you want to believe but in case Intel had taped out three chips so far, it would not be happy to share that with the rest of the world.
