I've been reading a lot about Larrabee recently and i think it may play and important role in the front of growing operating systems like Syllable.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larrabee_(GPU)

Larrabee is meant to be an accelarator card using x86 like cpus over a PCI Express 2 cards. I've also read that intel is working with people from Mesa3d to adapt the software renderer to the massive multi threaded nature of Larrabee. What do you think something like this would mean for Syllable? OpenGL accell made easy (easier)?

It should mean that once our architechure is in place, all we'll have to do is move to that version of Mesa3D and everything should fall in place with less fuss than it's taking now.....
