Amazing

CUDA will have a hard time vs DX11 Compute Shaders & Larrabee.

Well apart from the great physics I can't say great graphics, even though it looks amazing it's pretty much because everything explodes nice.

I actually thought it looked amazing. Crysis quality or better... probably better due to the physics.

I hope the next Crysis employs either PhysX, or OpenCL. I'm liking what I'm seeing with OpenCL more.

Yes, that's what Larrabee is. I was asking if this video was actually run on Larrabee or if it was just a demonstration of the game engine, running on unknown hardware.
Uh, no it isn't. That is one possible permutation of Larabee that may be revealed in the future, but Larabee will also be sold as a discrete graphics card at the outset and likely integrated into motherboards later on

The flexibility of using the X86 ISA set certainly allows more uses that GPU's of today, but it will primarily be a very fast, flexible vector processor. I think you're getting it confused with AMD's "Fusion" project.

PhysX and Havok you mean.
Afaik Havok is the only physics engine in the works coded with OpenCL, though NV might decide to go that route with PhysX now that there is some competition.

Whoops. My mistake.

I haven't read much about it and the last thing I read was that it was a CPU+GPU hybrid.

Upon reading into it further I see that they're just referring to the way its built, not that its actually a full CPU with a built in GPU.

You threw me off with the whole "uh..." thing, I didn't know you were asking a serious question.

Yepp I do and im very very glad that ATI pulled of a gfx card like that and took them to the top once again, I know it's a supernice gfx serie and they pushed nVidia to cut the prizes of their 200 serie so all is good

Just a bad joke from my side and nothing else.

I love how dynamic everything feels in that video.

This would be a very smart move and I hope they do it, otherwise PhysX would be dead sooner or later

One of Intels Larrabee guys has a blog, and there is no mention of this demo in his GDC posting.
