Nvidia Uses Cartoon to Tease Intel Larrabee Delay

When it came to reactions surrounding Intel's decision to effectively cancel the release of its first version of Larrabee, Nvidia was a company of few words.

Much to your dismay, all Nvidia could muster up as a response was, "The fact that a company with Intel's technical prowess and financial resources has struggled so hard to succeed with parallel computing shows just how exceptionally difficult a challenge this is," said by Victor Martinez, a spokesman for Nvidia.

Those of you hoping for more fightin' words will hopefully find a thousand more in the latest Intel's Insides cartoon from Nvidia.

    Very nice... made me smile for a bit :) Too bad intel is shooting down the larrabee project, I had good hopes for it.

    Just when I was thinking they were getting soft. (Their initial response to the Larrabee delay was almost professional).

    Good to see the green team hasn't changed.

    You know, ATI might have a faster card at the moment but that sure as hell doesn't mean they are SLAUGHTERING NVIDIA. Where does this crap come from? Anyway, cartoon is pretty witty. Also, I am officially NOT a fan boy of any kind. Well, maybe Photoshop but that's a different ballpark.

    For months lol. Yea we all know how this cycle works. Ati is ahead now then Nvidia will release something and be ahead etc etc etc. Whats funny is ATI now has AMD behind them and they have yet to release something that is Truly an Nvidia killer. By adding Cudda Nvidia raised the stakes overall. Yes I know ATI has something similar but it does not seem to be embraced yet. I would love to see Nvidia comeout with there own CPU. An all Nvidia system me thinks would raise the bar on the whole CPU market.

    Then you must be a bigger idiot. One, for calling someone else an idiot and two, for apparently not reading his post and/or taking his comment out of context. He said "Truly." At the time, it barely beat the GTX 280...


    Not to mention they leapfrog each other constantly. I have to agree...the 4870 was hardly a killer. It was marginally better at best.
