NVIDIA to license its Kepler GPU core to grab more from the "explosion of Android devices"

NVIDIA isn't content with the number of Android devices that use its Tegra chipsets and wants to get more of the market, and the plan to do that looks like the company will license its Kepler GPU core to other chipset manufacturers. NVIDIA hopes that doing this will enable it to get more from the "explosion of Android devices"...

So like... it's just licensing IP? Like Imagination GPU technology?
I suppose this will hurt their plans for the Tegra chips. I wonder what will happen to Project Denver now... if their custom cores can't match up to the competition and yet they have access to Nvidia's powerful GPU IP there will be no reason to buy Tegra at all.

In near future, there aren't any new devices coming with tegra4 or tegra4i...so Nvidia is losing on that front...pc sales are going down hill...intel is pushing on gpu...so this move is very much justified.

Not to say it's a big success, but there are at least two new devices (not make by NVIDIA) coming with Tegra 4 in the near future: Toshiba AT10LE-A and Asus Transformer Pad Infinity 2
