Intel has finally demonstrated its much talked about, but little seen discrete GPU, Larrabee at IDF 2009. Interestingly, the demo ran a ray-traced version of Quake Wars with a Gulftown 6-core CPU. CNET have uploaded a video of the same.

An older stepping was used, but sadly not much more information is available. Larrabee is still due to hit stores in 2010 – presumably challenging ATI’s HD 5800 and Nvidia GT 300 series.
