New from Intel: It's Mini-Cores!

Kevet, Keifer and Larrabee

MORE INTEL CODE names to toss out, three in fact, two dead and one live. The interesting thing is not that they exist, but what they are, mini-cores.

The names are Kevet, Keifer and Larrabee (possibly Larabee, Laraby or Larraby), and they all are, or were, mini-core projects at Intel. Larrabee is the survivor, it was just given the go-ahead while Kevet and Keifer were axed. RIP whatever they were.

This brings up the question of what mini-cores are, and what are they intended for. More interesting is why a sales-person in the PS3 section of the Roseville, MN Best Buy knew what they were? µ
