First details on 'Larabee' emerge

The folks at OCWorkbench have some details on Intel's Larabee plans:

Intel Corporation is presenting a paper at the SIGGRAPH 2008 industry conference in Los Angeles on Aug. 12 that describes features and capabilities of its first-ever forthcoming “many-core” blueprint or architecture codenamed “Larrabee.”

This seems to have great potential. So do quads at this point. The software developers need to get off their lazy duffs and write multi threaded apps and games. I still beleive that we are not even scratching the surface of the ability already in our computers. Between MS and other companies failing to step up and make software that will optimize the multi core CPUs we already have, we are just beating our heads against a rock with more cores. I am not saying that a quad core is not faster than a dual core. I am saying it is not as fast as it can be. We have next gen hardware and are running last gen software on it.

Basically, it's hard to get multicore stuff right.There's a whole bunch of issues that only really start to occur as you add multiple cores into the mix.
