Intel classifies Larrabee as part of its Terascale project, which includes the 80-core proof-of-concept chip that was unveiled at IDF last fall. To help developers write code for Larrabee hardware, Intel has developed a new C-based programming model it calls Ct. According to InformationWeek, the model "deals with the complexity of parallelization" while allowing developers to "program as if they are writing applications for one core." The code is optimized to run across multiple cores at both compile time and run time. Intel researcher Mohan Rajagopalan told reporters a Ct preview would be released to the open-source community in the near future, and that Intel is "still working out the legal issues in making the whole project open source."
