Nvidia To License Graphics Technology

Nvidia

Nvidia will be licensing the GPU core based on the Nvidia Kepler architecture, creating a new class of licensable GPU cores, says the company, in a blog post. Licensees will receive necessary designs, collateral and support to integrate the graphics cores into their devices.

Kepler is the basis for currently shipping GeForce, Quadro and Tesla GPUs, as well as Nvidia’s next-generation Tegra mobile processor codenamed Logan. Nvidia says through its efforts in designing Tegra into mobile devices, the company has gained experience designing for the smallest power envelopes. Kepler can operate in a half-watt power envelope, making it scalable from smartphones to supercomputers.

Nvidia will also offer licensing rights to its visual computing portfolio. This will enable licensees to develop their own GPU functionality.
