Rendering Games with Raytracing Will Revolutionize Graphics
The team used four different quad-core systems (Kentsfield based) connected via Gigabit Ethernet distribution systems to render in a simulated 16-core system. The results you can see were impressive with a 15.2x improvement in frame rate over the baseline systems. These tests were run at a resolution of 1024x1024 which is obviously not a classic gaming screen size, but pixels are pixels when it comes to rendering through raytracing.

Raytracing sure is the next step for games (for graphics, that is).

Hm, I think the INQ actually got wind of this ~6 months ago when that guy was just hired, they did a brief article on it.
Almost linear scaling per core... since Larabee is x86, this sounds very much like Intel is planning ahead for their new chip...
