Intel Larrabee will have 32 cores, not 16 or 24

    Originally, Intel was saying Larrabee would have 10 or more cores.
    Most articles in 2007 mentioned 16 to 24 cores. This was when
    Larrabee was slated for release in 2009.

    Now that Larrabee has been pushed to 2010, it seems Intel will be able
    to get 32 cores into the first version.

    "How many of these small cores (which Intel calls mini-cores) will
    Larrabee have? Heise says that Larrabee will have 32 processing
    cores."

    Perhaps this is because a smaller fab process will be available.
    Either way, this is good. The more the merrier. IBM is meant to have
    a CELL with 32 SPEs by 2010 as well.

    The fun part is, Intel's 32 cores plus everything else in Larrabee
    will go towards running graphics really, really fast. Larrabee will
    also supposedly have DirectX 11 capabilities, too.

    Interesting times are ahead.

    "A June 2007 PC Watch article suggests that the first Larrabee chips
    will feature 32 x86 processor cores and come out in 2009, fabricated
    on a 45 nanometer process. Chips with a few defective cores due to
    yield issues will be sold as a 24-core version. Later in 2010 Larrabee
    will be shrunk for a 32 nanometer fabrication process which will
    enable a 48 core version."
