For the reason’s posted under “Intel Plus Altera
What Would it Mean?” … Intel simply doesn’t need Altera, or Xilinx IP.

Everything that is important they will need to engineer themselves anyway, and that isn’t very much. A co-processor FPGA fabric is a very very different beast than today’s Altera and Xilinx FPGA’s.

Done right, and Intel will redefine computing … and implemented from XEON’s to Atom SOC offerings, so that Xilinx and Altera will spend the next decade playing catchup. Game over.

And with it, new important boundaries for both Amdahl’s Law, and Moore’s Law.
