Sources at Intel have confirmed that Larrabee graphic is set to come with 45nm process. However, it won’t commercially ship this year, but we heard that there might be some prototypes in Q4 2008.
They simply said that it is natural to make graphic transistors in 45nm process, and we know that Intel is ahead of TSMC and everyone else with its 45nm process.
Larrabee is a GPU, Physics and scientific calculation chip made of many small parallel parts with at least 16 chips (units) and we can guarantee that this will be fast in these operations.
It's still premature to proclaim the instant success of this chip, but it got everyone’s attention.
