    0310 what a lie.
    If you do a lille more reserch you see that is whas gpu goal to get back om theat nvidia and amd did alov C comilers over the bords. Intel FALED AGEN to deliver a chip that whas build for parallell compute. When larabi got a a part on gpu track It whas old In GPU is whas not id did scale well and its the p chip that they got back from the MIL after a lot of testing and bugfixes. So is larabbe a gfx, not today whas. all maketing did day that it shuld be a part of it,

    I have a computer still running which was a great combo back in 2008... Asus P5k motherboard, 8GB DDR2, Q6600 Quad core Intel 2.4GHZ at 3.0GHZ on air and running smoothly for the last 10 years.. Except for the bluescreen issue with Asus drives because of incorrect settings to the networking port - which I corrected and haven't had any issues with since. I am planning on upgrading computers soon and I am planning on giving this to my brother, but if it could run that card, it'd be interesting to see as long as you reship it.. if you need it...

    I love how he swings around violently a super rare GPU that could possibly be one of kind and irreplaceable. It's almost disrespectful to people like me who don't have the money to buy new hardware all the time. It's almost like since he's drowning in free hardware from a thousand different places he no longer appreciates them.

    AMD GCN was can do furture versions of DirectX too, just dont use x86 instructions for it.
    Larabee/Knights Corner/Phi were designed for different purposes than shader computation, but AMD GCN can do a lot of non-shader operations - as is seen by bitcoin miners.

    and most new mobos have compatability problems. Use the card with and old mobo or update your BIOS and try again. If it wont work again, send the card to me. I'd like to spend my time :D

    2:20 first and only dedicated graphics card? WRONG. There was Intel 740 Auburn! Developed by Intel and Lockheed Martin. Released to mass market to compete with NVidia Riva 128 and 3DLabs Permedia 2, and promote the new AGP port. You could buy a dedicated Intel GPU from any decent supplier for a short time in late 90ies.

      Also we've had a fully programmable PC GPU before - Rendition Vérité that survived for 2 product generations and 3 products in total, V1000, V2100 and V2200. There was also a hilarious card with reversible bracket, where one side around it was PCI and the other was AGP.

  • SephiiiHD
    SephiiiHD Day ago

    Since it is an engeneering sample it normally do not come with any driver or software support since they are used for evaluation work under specific contractual terms and conditions.
    At least this is what intel has to say about those cards.
    I don't think that we will find any drivers for it, but, you still could try older hardware since this gpu propably doesn't support those newer chipsets and also might not even support win10.
    Since you are in a kinda close relationship with intel u might just ask them about how to set it up.

    Okay. Another video without recherching on the matter before hand. Intel has been in the graphics accelerator market since the 80's. Even with dedicated pci and agp cards, they just weren't very successful.
    So a prototype card wit a dedicated HD2000/3000/4000 egeneering sample makes sense.
