Default Intel New Larrabee silicon taped out weeks ago

IT LOOKS LIKE Larrabee, Intel's upcoming GPU++, is about to have new silicon in short order. The B0 stepping taped out about a month ago, so there should be some public showings soon. B0 taped out on August 15, and the silicon is winding it's way through the fabs now. Even with Intel's manufacturing prowess, making those parts and bringing up the new silicon takes time. It is going to be a really close call on them making showable boards before IDF or not. Here's to hoping.

Word on the street is that Larrabee has a host of bugs which prevented public showings of the Ax silicon. This is not uncommon for a new architecture, and a new paradigm only adds to the pain. That said, almost all problems are said to be fixed in the move from Ax to B0 silicon. If schedules don't allow for the new stepping to be shown at IDF next week, expect a flood of demos at the next major conference.
