@peter ok by "limited" i meant "sold mostly in" . I am not aware of any major design wins for Freescale i.MX in consumer space like tablets or mobiles. (is there any?) Kindles and Eink readers is an exception, but then graphics performance is a non issue there. Also for automotive and embedded space, high performance graphics may not be needed.

@eewiz Who said Vivante is "limited" to the Chinese market? It just so happens that TD-SCDMA is China-only market but Vivante has other design wins. Freescale has licensed Vivante graphics cores for use in its i.MX applications processors for consumer, automotive and embedded applications. There's no geographical limitation there (see last link under news articles above).

my guess is vivante is competing based on price only. Else why would their IP be limited to china market?
