Quite honestly, there's absolutely zero proof that Intel and Microsoft are yapping it up in regard to Larrabee
, but considering just how logical it sounds, we couldn't help but pass along the latest whispers surrounding the two. According to those fabled "industry insiders," The Inquirer
has it that Intel is currently on bended knee asking Microsoft to integrate Larrabee into the next-generation Xbox
. If it were to land such a deal, developers would -- in essence -- be forced to develop for Larrabee given the need for console titles, which could then make things all the easier for Intel on the PC side. Like we said, this is all speculatory for now, but so long as the dots continue to connect, we'll at least give this one a fighting chance at materializing.
