From El Reg:

- Nvidia had better watch out. Texas Instruments is not only its rival
when it comes to making ARM processors that might end up in servers
someday, but it is also repositioning its digital signal processors so
they can be used as math coprocessors for standard x86 CPUs – and
perhaps ARM processors one day.

... TMS320C66x family of DSPs needs a much easier nickname if it is to
become cool and talked about ...

C66x delivers 160 gigaflops of single-precision floating point ...
8MB L2 cache ... 12.8GB/sec of bandwidth ...
only consumes 10 watts ...
