Your personal attack seems to indicate you disagree with my  
qualification of the entire Larrabee line
having any reality sense in the long run.

Instead of throwing mudd, mind to explain why a Larrabee,
an architecture far away from mainstream, makes any chance of  
competing in HPC
with the existing architectural concepts in the long run?
