    We can't know about performeance and power consumption, but feature-wise (64bit) only parker seems to be a true competitor for kabini.

    Edit: nvidia seems to be ahead on the driver department though, by already supporting android and gnu/linux, whereas amd questionably does the later and don't support the former, so they are behind software-wise.

      Nobody writes CUDA code for consumer applications, that's true.
      But in number crunching industries, people really do use CUDA much more than openCL. That's because of commercial support and better optimization for Nvidia cards, and because Tesla cards are the only server dedicated GPGPU with ECC memory on the market (hence, only Nvidia cards are used on GPGPU grids anyway).
      Maybe it's different in public and semi-public research (more openCL because open/standard), I have no particular experience on that.

        Tegra 4 was late by several months, yet they think they can do Tegra 5 for 2014Q1, and it's a bigger jump in many ways. Won't be holding my breath for that to release on time.

          Dealing with TSMC appears to be a huge burden.

            Then they should build their own semi plant. If TSMC is unreasonable they should switch vendors or build their own, but complaining about it isn't getting them any sympathy.

              Getting off a foundry is probably no easy task. And the fact that TSMC is taking on Apple in what would clearly be a new highest-priority customer, I think NVIDIA is going to continue to struggle with this aspect of their business.

              It's not that TSMC is a poor company per se, it's just that they're way, way overcapacity and things like die shrinks and new architectures are going to have to move at their pace.

                Kayla is running on Nvidia 319.00 Linux drivers, can't wait for Nvidia to release the 319.xx drivers.
