Rick, Another interesting development last week relative to K3V2 is Microsoft adding Huawei to the Windows 8 on ARM program: http://www.brightsideofnews.com/news/2012/2/29/microsoft-expands-windows-8-on-arm-approved-vendors-list-welcome-huawei2c-marvell.aspx

the recent trend of HW also including hiring star talent from silicon valley or else to lead /architect projects... which cut short the learning curve significently.

Nvidia does have an ARM architectural license, but it hasn't made use of it yet. Tegra3 was made in a 40nm high performance process at TSMC. Huawei's K3V2 was made in a 40 nm low power process at TSMC.

Our current best guess is Vivante, but it is ONLY A GUESS. If anybody knows anything about this, drop me an email at rick.merritt@ubm.com

With the availabilty of so much of the IP - A9 processors from ARM, GPU from the unnamed partner in the US, "designing" such an SoC is not such a big deal as it used to be a few years back. For these applications the power efficiency is key - fps alone does not matter - a xeon gets better fps e.g. BUT I believe this will enable Huawei to do what it has done in the other markets - lower the price of its handsets to a price-point that cannot be touched by anyone else since they now control the silicon as well and do not need to pay a TI or nVidia margins. It will take them a few generations but they will eventually get it right. Be scared, be very scared.
