TG Daily published two concept art images of Project Offset. This game is developed by Offset Software, a game developer that was acquired by Intel in February 2008. Intel will use this first person shooter as Larrabee's launch title to demonstrate the horsepower of Intel's Larrabee graphics cards.
It is a bit early to get excited about Intel’s Larrabee graphics chip and even if you are a PC enthusiast, you may want to be thinking about purchasing another “regular” graphics card, before you can get a better idea of at what Intel’s “many-x86 core” graphics card may be capable of. But Intel is aiming high and we don’t expect Intel to throw out anything that can’t compete with the best there is once Larrabee will be available in 2009 and 2010.
To demonstrate its horsepower, Intel will have to have at least one compelling launch title – and to make sure that it will exploit everything Larrabee has to offer, the company purchased Offset Software in early 2008. There have been a few screens available so far and today we received two more that showcase the direction Offset is thinking. Still images can’t tell the whole story and we are careful voicing any opinion how capable Project Offset will be. Instead, click into our gallery below and see for yourself.
