 This is thier 2nd attempt at this (I believe) and then punt.  Leave this arena and stick to the things you know best.

I kinda figured we weren't going to see Larabe because it was supposed to come out early last year and it was going to be slower then any of it's competition. Intel just isn't capable of competing in the fast paced world of GPU's. They are used to their CPU's lasting a year or two on the market while GPU's will live for about six months or so before the competition buries it. Besides games also help GPU's sell because new games will always be released that make that new high end graphics card in your machine turn out frame rates in the single digit range making you beg the GPU suppliers for faster graphics cards. The CPU just doesn't have that kind of problem. So Intel just isn't used to it and probably doesn't have it's money setup for that kind of high speed RnD and production schedule. But I was really hoping Intel would come to compete in the graphics market beyond that crappy excuse of a GPU known as an Intel Graphics Accelerator.

I am actually fairly surprised by this move from Intel. Intel and Nvidia have a long history (not nice) together in the GPU/CPU market. Intel wants Nvidia's head on a platter and vice versa. Anyways, it's interesting to see that Intel finally decided that they were way too far behind to make any real dent in Nvidia's sharehold of the GPU market. I think Intel did the right move and decided to stick with what it does best: CPU

I'm actually a little disappointed in this. I was hoping for a comparable product that could further increase competative products in this field. The same needs to happen the cpu market as well. IMHO

Comparable? You haven't seen an Intel "GPU", have you?

Actually I have, but I still maintain that competition is good for all markets, no matter how crappy the product.

 From Intel?

They couldn't produce a proper GPU (or IGP) to save themselves. I'm not surprised that they dropped out of the descrete graphics market, let ATi/AMD and nVidia produce the graphics adapters, and Intel can go back to producing sub-par and crappy IGP.

I just want to see more competition in the market.
