61 cores meh
Multi cores are nice if you have the software optimised to use all cores but GPUs are optmised for vector processing.
In order to levellerage the raw power of this intel kit then you need a OS and apps optimised to run on these 61 cores, cerainly not something that is availible off the shelf.
If you go the intel route then you going to need to pay M$ on a per CPU basis or go with a real optimised OS based upon unix but you are still going to need the vector math that everyone's applications are used to and that still means GPUs.
Have intel said anything about when their optimised OS and apps are going to be availible to go with their new kit? this because raw power alone has never been the key to market share and without the software to match the hardware then it isnt going to measure up at all. The GPU market already have their software in place
