I read about this earlier today. If it is correct that there will be "no DirectX support" then they`re looking at a different market for them.

But knowing Intel, there will be a darn good reason why they`re doing what they`re doing.

No OpenGl, Console ? Mac ?

.. but on the other hand, until a release news article direct from Intel spans out the map for Larrabee, I`ll still think of it as a rumor or a misquote.

Talk about shooting themselves in the foot. Unless this its emulated or something who's honestly going to buy a card that will only play 6 games and makes your entire collection redundant? Also the likes of 3Dmark being dx based. Meaning no benchmarkers will go near it either.
