Intel Larrabee - a mini-core

Posted on Monday, Jul 03 2006 @ 20:27 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
The Inq heard Intel was working on three "mini-cores", the Kevet, Keifer and Larrabee:
The names are Kevet, Keifer and Larrabee (possibly Larabee, Laraby or Larraby), and they all are, or were, mini-core projects at Intel. Larrabee is the survivor, it was just given the go-ahead while Kevet and Keifer were axed. RIP whatever they were.

This brings up the question of what mini-cores are, and what are they intended for. More interesting is why a sales-person in the PS3 section of the Roseville, MN Best Buy knew what they were?
