Did Pat Gelsinger Leave Intel because of Larrabee?

We all know that Pat Gelsinger is leaving Intel for EMC. This was an announcement made the other day and on the surface did not seem to be much of a big deal. But, as with many things what is in a press release is often not even close to the real truth behind the matter.


If sources are to be believed Pat left Intel not for greener pastures, but because he failed to deliver Larrabee. This corresponds with other rumors we heard about techs leaving for failing to product a working Larrabee by the stated deadline.


Of course the issue of Larrabee being delayed would not be so bad if it was not for the CPU Vs. GPU war between Intel and nVidia. This little tiff brought attention to Larrabee for what it was supposed to be, and also for what it was not, working.


Of course as with any rumor or confidential source all of this must be taken with a grain of salt. Still there are two things we know; Larrabee is nowhere near ready and Pat Gelsinger has left Intel for EMC.


Makes you wonder doesn't it?
