Intel’s Larrabee which was cut off more than a decade ago successfully runs on Windows 10

Intel tried to launch a standalone display product in 2008, codenamed Larrabee, but it was abandoned in 2010 due to technical route problems, and some of the Larrabee standalone display prototype products were transferred to computer gamers.

According to a post on Reddit, someone managed to run this more than ten-year-old graphics card on the Windows 10 operating system.

A member of the LinusTechTips community on Reddit managed to get a Larrabee prototype card from “a friend” with a BIOS version number 1.0.0.0102 dated February 8, 2010, which is when Intel pronounced Larrabee “death sentence” “after.

Even more surprising, the post claims that the Larrabee graphics card was “taken from an image processing machine connected to a CAT scanner,” meaning the graphics card was subsequently used in image processing products.

As you can see from the video, the graphics card doesn’t ship with Windows 10 drivers, but it can still be used as a base graphics adapter. GPU-Z recognized the graphics card as an Intel GPU and read its device ID (8086 2240 – 8086 2240), but not its model.

The “Larrabee” display core is another independent display core of Intel after the Intel 740. The R&D team and development concept are completely different from Intel’s integrated display core. The original plan was to launch the product as a consumer-grade graphics processor product in 2010 at the latest, but due to multiple “bounces”, the development progress was not as expected, the graphics performance was poor, and the power consumption was too high, Intel finally released it in May 2010. Announced the cancellation of the plan to release related graphics cards, and there is no follow-up news on the “Larrabee” research plan.

▲ The core layout of Intel Larrabee

Larrabee uses an x86 architecture, called “IA” processing core, each “IA” core is based on the old first-generation Pentium P54C core, rather than the latest Nehalem architecture processor core at that time, Intel believes that at that time only The Pentium P54C core, which has a five-stage pipeline and can only execute sequentially, has more potential for graphical transformation than Nehalem, which has a complex out-of-order execution structure with a 14-stage pipeline.
