Gyrokinetic and non-local fluid codes have complementary limitations in the tokamak edge. To arrive at a common basis, the gyrokinetic code CGYRO and the non-local two-fluid code NLET have both been applied to identical parameters sets ranging from resistive ballooning turbulence - approaching the collisional fluid limit - relevant to the edge of a tokamak, up to high-gradient kinetic ITG modes at higher temperatures in the core-edge transitional regime, yielding comparable results. As a non-trivial, novel result, linear growth rate and nonlinear transport agree between the codes in the fluid limit of high collision numbers (nu_e~500-10000 c_i/R), not least, because the kinetic code employs the Sugama collision operator with momentum and energy conservation, Galileian invariance and exact self-adjointness property.
