We asked Nvidia to comment on Intel's recent Larrabee cancellation and we received an interesting answer, although it's close to what we expected.

Nvidia’s PR spinner who likes to be quoted Mr. Igor Stanek - Nvidia Product PR Manager, stated the following.

"The fact that a company with Intel's technical prowess and financial resources has struggled so hard to succeed with parallel computing shows just how exceptionally difficult a challenge this is."

We remain confident that Larrabee will come back to graphics and especially parallel computing market. It is important to realize that it was canceled simply because the current Larrabee performance according to Intel was a “disappointment”. Nvidia will receive some competition from Intel in this market, but the questions remaining are exactly when and how competitive it will be at launch.
