Sony: Intel GPU in PS4 is nonsense

Posted on Friday, Feb 06 2009 @ 22:58 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
A report from Charlie Demerjian over at The Inquirer this week claimed Intel's Larrabee GPU would be in the PlayStation 4 console from Sony. I didn't post the rumor because it read like yet another NVIDIA rant, and today I spotted a report from TechRadar that tells an entirely different tale:
The Inquirer continues to speculate about the PS4's CPU, suggesting that Intel "would seem to be leaning toward x86." This is all, of course, pure rumour and speculation right now.

TechRadar spoke with a Sony Computer Entertainment Europe rep who told us in no uncertain terms, "it's nonsense, and is quite possibly the best work of fiction I've read, since Lord of the Rings."
