When it comes to Larrabee one of most intriguing things is its performance. Official information provided by Intel was not enough to get good estimation. In my previous post I’ve estimated it as "roughly equivalent to GTX 295". Well, it seems I was too optimistic. Latest rumors are that current Larrabee samples deliver same performance as GTX 285.
We’ve written earlier that Larrabee is probably delayed till early 2010. This almost certainly means that it will have to compete with next-generation ATI and NVIDIA cards, both are currently scheduled for Q3-Q4 2009 (ATI have even presented their new chip at COMPUTEX 2009).
Nonetheless, Larrabee still seems promising to us and we will definitely try our best to make our GPU-enabled products such as Distributed Password Recovery and Wireless Security Auditor compatible with Larrabee once it’ll become available.
