Intel Plus Altera | Great summary by Kevin Morris EE Journal

Meanwhile, Xilinx and Altera each introduced real, tangible, working hybrid computing chip families that not only went into production, but had actual product names (Zynq and SoC FPGA, respectively). Both of these families featured complete multi-core ARM processor subsystems with very high-bandwidth on-chip connections to an FPGA fabric. Nothing to worry about for Intel yet, right? After all, these devices are intended for embedded applications, not data centers. But, clearly, the monolithic integration of these devices yielded significant advantages over simply parking processors next to FPGAs. The on-chip connection between processor and FPGA fabric brings major benefits in performance and power consumption, and nothing Intel could do simply partnering with FPGA companies would offset that potential advantage. From Intel’s perspective, it could be troubling.
