Tabula, Achronix, eASIC have one thing in common: They are all non-public companies so they don't have to share their actual revenue results with analysts. In keeping with the theme of this article, if I slap a party affiliation on them: Tabula (Green Party), Achronix (Peace & Freedom), eASIC(Reform)... Do you ever see these guys getting a podium at the debates??

Great points Dylan and MP Divakar, where is Tabula these days? Kris

GPGPUs are likely to be displaced by Intel's MIC (Many Integrated Cores) architecture. General delivery next quarter with 60-odd 4-thread Pentium-III-like cores.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating. We heard a lot about Tabula and Achronix but they have yet to deliver.

Not with the GP prefix :-) I think FPGAs are failing in the more general purpose end of the spectrum where GPUs are more and more dominant. Low programmer productivity remains FPGAs' Achilles Heel.

Dylan, I haven't run into Steve Tieg (from Tabula) lately but you ask an interesting question. Tabula was already sampling a product with a major networking vendor (we all know who that is!) almost a year ago. I haven't kept up with Achronix. MP Divakar

Both Tabula and Achronix are interesting companies with 22-nm FPGAs. But Xilinx and Altera don't seem to be worried about them. When will these upstarts truly make their presence felt?

While the two big boys are quibbling over who has more marbles, a third player is quietly making progress at a more advanced 22nm node. That would be Tabula, right here in Silicon Valley! MP Divakar

Interesting comment @KB3001...could we consider GPGPU as an ASIC?
