Intel Demos Larrabee Processor Live at IDF

During today's high performance computing workstation and server breakout at IDF, Intel took the opportunity to provide a live demonstration of their Larabee technology today in a high performance workstation showcase.  Though we're not completely sure we weren't just seeing a demonstration of the Larrabee instruction set on a high-end server of some sort (we weren't able to see inside the box), Intel did indeed provide a demo of their technology running a raytracing demo that we've seen in the past, which is a port of Id's Quake Wars artwork, full raytraced and running at a relatively high resolution from what we could tell.

Unfortunately we don't have much more information expect that the demo looked relatively fluid, perhaps a bit pokey in spots and that Intel has begun seeding developers with Larabee systems in an effort to gain further traction with their upcoming GPU many core architecture.
