Intel gunning for Larrabee console deals

Posted on Saturday, September 06 2008 @ 02:24:57 CEST by

The Inquirer claims Intel is trying hard to get its upcoming Larranee GPU off the ground. The site claims Intel is willing to shelve out millions to partners who adopt Larrabee and writes Intel has proposed a very sweet deal to Microsoft if the firm uses Larrabee in its next-generation Xbox console.
Offering everything from chips to chassis, Intel is purportedly wooing the Vole right down to designing its thermals and pimping the Larrabee chipset out to Microsoft to subcontract out as it pleases. Needless to say, this gives the Vole some rather hefty bargaining power, and leaves both AMD and Nvidia quivering in their boots.

Intel also appears to be heding its bets by wooing Sony by going after the Playstation 4, which won’t be out until at least 2011. The Xbox720 will be out in the market a fair while before that.

Word out of the games convention in Leipzig appears to be that, in all likelihood, Larrabee version one will barely take off, but with the right console deal, Larabee Two – which should be making its first appearance somewhere around 2010 – could be a big player.
