Larrabee

On Wednesday, I gave a talk on Intel's Larrabee project. After reading through the SIGGRAPH 08 paper and presentations given by Tom Forsyth, I became very impressed with the work Intel's engineers did in advancing manycore computing. It's a shame that a Larrabee GPU won't be in our desktops and laptops. I hope that Intel's Many Integrated Core (MIC) project does at least bring a commercial product to the HPC developers currently confined to CUDA and OpenCL.

Slides to my presentation are available here: http://static.vsampath.com/cis565/s11/larrabee.pdf

The slides are a bit sparse, but here's a video with the slides and voice-over from the presentation: http://static.vsampath.com/cis565/s11/larrabee.wmv

Feel free to post any questions and/or mourn the loss of the Larrabee GPU in the comments.
