John,

Remember that Knight's Corner is an instance (cf IvyBridge) whereas Phi is
a product line (cf Xeon)
In the same way Kepler is an instance of Nvidia's Telsa line.

The technology was also known as MIC : pronounced 'Mick' or 'Mike'
depending on who you spoke to.
That was confusing - so with PHI it is now unambiguous right? er no - I
hear people say both 'Fee' and 'Fi'

Ho hum, (Fo fum),

Daniel
