Nvidia, the dominant provider of discrete GPUs over the past decade, cannot make the same leap in silicon integration that its two key rivals will imminently launch. The simple reason: it has no x86 IP in its technology arsenal.

Nvidia has announced its CUDA on x86 technology. Nvidia is enabling developers to move to CUDA gradually. They can develop, debug, and run code on x86 and get started on CUDA even if most of their legacy code is still based on the CPU. By letting developers work with both CPUs and GPUs, Nvidia might also be giving them a chance to see for themselves the advantages of GPUs compared to CPUs.
