A) the A15 tegra K1 is significantly (1.4x) more efficient than previous chips.
B) nvidia isnt doing will in mobile phone industry because qualcomm has a monopoly, nvidia will be focusing on other areas such as tablets, micro consoles, smart cars, ect.
C) Nvidia claims their dual core denver chip is 4x as efficient as the A15 based chip that they are about to come out with. wait 6 months.

If you've seen some the stuff they have done with Maxwell, the K1 is just a stepping stone to something really good down the road.

Power consumption is still suspect

The reason they are not doing well in mobile space is because they drop off their support after a year or so ( Moto Atrix,Htc one x.. lg hd something) so no manufacturer can take the risk of abondoning their phones or customers and also their chips get ridculoulsy HOT !! and most of all the gaming is full of C**P ,the games RUN LIKE S**T! on these chips .. only the tegra exclusive run ok...So i dont think anybody will invest in their chips
