The Street reacts favorably to Nvidia's (NVDA +7.3%) decision to license its GPU cores and related IP to other mobile processor developers, rather than simply pin its mobile hopes on Tegra sales. "If there was ever a way for Nvidia to get into Apple, the IP licensing angle is likely it," says Raymond James, which thinks the move could also limit traction for ARM's (ARMH -0.8%) Mali GPU cores. Evercore is less optimistic about Apple, stating checks point to "significant internal GPU design efforts" at the company. It views Samsung as a possibility, but adds the Korean electronics giant is "cycling through IP vendors and chip suppliers."

    Good article. But I think the Nvidia Shield praise is a bit over the top. I don't have high hopes for it.

    Great decision by Nvidia and great for the industry in general!


    The ARM ecosystem moves from only a few choice to yet one more (a good one at that).


    Kind of was inevitable... couldn't predict timing, but not too much of a surprise.


    Now, we just have to wait (about 1 or 2 quarters) for AMD to announce the same.
