The main scientific expert NVIDIA has scarified the approach underlying Larrabee

As it is known, company Intel at forum IDF 2009 has shown a plate with chips Larrabee, having confirmed, in such a manner that work on creation discrete graphic the processor approaches end. We will remind, ready 3D-payments on the first GPU Intel can appear this year.

Interesting there was company NVIDIA reaction, to which territory is going to enter Intel, having let out the discrete graphic processor. It was stated in interview to the edition of New York Times by Bill Deli (Bill Dally), since January supervising in NVIDIA research works.

According to Deli, to companies Intel and AMD, met difficulties in increase of productivity of processors, it was necessary to resort to increase in quantity of kernels. At the same time, GPU have been initially deprived the restrictions which have stumped one-nuclear central processors. Feature GPU consists that they already have advantage in the field of multinuclear processing and offer bolshy potential for the future working out. The future belongs to heterogeneous decisions where CPU will be occupied by less exacting problems, and more productive GPU will manage more exacting problems, believes Deli.

According to the main scientific expert NVIDIA, to a set of instructions x86 it is necessary to pay for attachment Intel. Speaking more particularly, addition of support of commands x86 involves essential increase in the area of a crystal. In turn, company Intel explains an architecture choice x86 desire to facilitate a life to the software developers already familiar with it.
