Major thing there... price.

A top of the line Tesla is going to run you $4,000+ MSRP. If going in house to develop their own ASIC saves them money at the order of magnitude they need (thousands of units)... then by all means do it. Maybe Nvidia might be forced to lower the price of their Tesla / Quadro cards to actually earn a place in these large data centers again.
