Hexus reports NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang couldn't resist bashing Intel's upcoming Larrabee GPU at the company's GPU Technology Conference last week. Here's a snip of Huang's rant:
In a rather scathing attack on Larrabee, NVIDIA CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, dismissed Intel's efforts to become a serious discrete graphics player using multi-core parallel computing, noting "I don't think a PowerPoint slide of any eloquence will replace the experience we have already created."

When asked about Larrabee at NVIDIA's recent GTC event, Huang joked "which chip is this?" before launching into a diatribe about Intel's chances in the graphics market.

"The fact of the matter is that Larrabee has launched and launched and launched to the point where even you're not interested anymore," Huang told a roomful of journalists.
