Intel Gulftown + LLVMpipe Is Awesome
Some kind PTS-using folks at Intel managed to get a Gulftown CPU sent out... finally (or any up-to-date CPU for that matter; a Core i7 970) and with its six-cores + Hyper-Threading are great... A review will be out in a few days along with a variety of other benchmarks, but with Gallium3D's LLVMpipe driver running across all twelve cores, the results are rather astonishing! Stay tuned..
Hm... Does this mean Intel's premise on GPUs wasn't as half-baked as AMD and NVidia claimed it to be?
