I don't get it: didn't they already cancel the discrete Larrabee GPU months ago?

Yes. Know they are confirming it.

And I wonder if the OP is jenn's alt account :)

LOL - I wouldn't doubt it. I wonder if she finally got a perma-ban on her original userID, since she hasn't been here for a month or more that I've seen..

Anyway, a more careful reading of the story shows that Larrabee won't be appearing as a discrete graphics GPU in the "short-term", which is what Intel already mentioned back in November or whenever.

I guess buying nVidia is out of the question for Intel, esp. considering that NV appears to have made a pretty good turn-around recently in their business. Intel shouldda pounced back when NV was on the ropes last summer, if they were going to at all...
