Intel is apparently canceling its most intriguing hybrid CPU

Intel’s project, which took about two years to complete (and possibly a few more years of research), has been cancelled, meaning the company will no longer be focusing its efforts on creating a CPU-VPU hybrid, at least for now.

Intel, codenamed Thunder Bay, has been working on a system-on-chip (SoC) combining CPU cores from the Xeon processor with VPU cores from Movidius, having acquired the company in 2016 for vision processor designs.
