Heres the full article for you all to read: http://www.trustedreviews.com/graphics/rev...Introduction/p1
Personally, I think this is awesome. Finally everything will be in one neat little chip instead of similar chips spread all across your system. Only downside I guess will be a move back to good ol' "shared RAM", so lets hope this time they actually do it right lol!
PS: Appologise if this has been posted already. i did a search and returned 0 results so... meh?
EDIT: Thought i should clarify before anyone has a fit - I'm talking about the move towards a single chip for both CPU and GPU. The wiki article says it best:
A June 2007 PC Watch article suggests that the first Larrabee chips will feature 32 x86 processor cores and come out in 2009, fabricated on a 45 nanometer process. Chips with a few defective cores due to yield issues will be sold as a 24-core version. Later in 2010 Larrabee will be shrunk for a 32 nanometer fabrication process which will enable a 48 core version..
Larrabee will have an extra-wide 512-bit vector processing unit for each core, much wider than SSE (128 bits) and also wider than AVX (256 bits). It is unknown whether Larrabee will use a variant of the AVX instruction set and retain SSE compatibility, or use a new and incompatible set of extended instructions.
Larrabee will probably be available in a server-oriented version which will sit directly in motherboard sockets using Intel's QuickPath interconnect, competitor to AMD's HyperTransport; this may open the possibility of creating a Larrabee-only computer without a companion traditional x86 processor such as the Core 2 Duo.
Fudzilla has posted several short articles about Larrabee, claiming that Larrabee may have a TDP as large as 300W, that Larrabee will use a 12-layer PCB and has a cooling system that "is meant to look similar to what you can find on high-end Nvidia cards today," that Larrabee will use GDDR5 memory, that it is targeted to have 2 teraflops of computing power, and that it doesn't have to use DirectX, but uses a direct mode.  Fudzilla also claims a Summer 2009 release date.
In a July 2008 interview, Intel's Pat Gelsinger stated that Larrabee’s x86 cores will be based on Intel’s P54C architecture, which was last seen in the original Pentium chips, such as the Pentium 75, in the early 1990s. Intel later said that Gelsinger had not revealed any details about the number or type of cores in Larrabee. However, other sources have confirmed the news, adding that the P54C has been adapted by the Pentagon for rad-hard applications, and this revised P54C was in turn adapted for Larrabee. Those sources have also claimed a 4 MB coherent L2 cache, and 3-operand instructions capability.
On August 12, 2008, Intel will present a paper describing Larrabee at SIGGRAPH.  The paper is said to contain a comparison of performance between Larrabee and Core 2 Duo, which reveals that the single-threaded performance of one of Larrabee's cores is roughly half that of a "Core 2" core, while the overall performance per watt of a Larrabee chip is 20× better than a Core 2 Duo chip.
On August 3, 2008, Intel present more information to analysts and journalists. Some interesting functionality were identified:
