DigiTimes reports Intel CEO Paul Otellini is in China to talk to several graphics card makers to promote the upcoming Larrabee GPU. Sources at graphics card makers told the site that Intel plans to offer preferential pricing for the GPU purchased by itself, ad bundled with other Intel products to attract partners. Perhaps this means that in the future we may see bundles for gamers that include a Intel CPU, a Larrabee graphics card and perhaps also a solid state disk.
