It would be one hell of a promotion...Intel probably has projects that are of a scope close to the entire goal of Nvidia. They are going to have to give on that...at least lower it to the CEO of Nvidia remains as the CEO of the aspects formally known as Nvidia. I think that happened with ATI and AMD...been a while now...I'd have to look it up

It would be a promotion but it's not that big considering....
What markets is Intel interested in currently? manycore processors, smartphone/tablets.
What markets did Nvidia break into recently? manycore processors, smartphone/tablets.

Intel does not have to focus that much on x86 CPUs, chipsets, NICs, or SSDs since those lines are pretty stable and secure.
Once again...

This has been rumored so many times that I can't believe it until there is proof.

I doubt the US government would like the merging of two of the very few large computer technology companies. Anti-trust laws would probably make this impossible.

The prior experience of running a large company is only one factor to consider.
Recent major example? Marissa Mayer was hired as a Google VP to run Yahoo.

Experience pays off though, CEO of Boeing Alan Mullaly went to Ford and was the major reasons it avoided the bailout.

I didn't mean to suggest that R&D was a factor in the hiring process, but I think given the state of their respective company's profitability, market share, outlook, etc. nabbing someone like Jen Hsun to replace Ontellini would be a huge downgrade. I don't think that guy has the right mindset to lead Intel. As an executive within the company, I can definitely see it, though.

ATI was Canadian before AMD bought them out weren't they? Maybe that would have been stopped too if they had been a US company

Experience pays off. More importantly... Experience in areas where you are lacking.

Where does Intel need to compete? Smartphones/tablets.
Where does Intel see the CPU architecture moving towards? Manycore processors.

Hsun is very experienced in both these fields. I'm not saying this rumor is true but I can understand why it may be plausible. However, you are right in Hsun might not fit Intel's culture.

US regulators probably reviewed that acquisition:
ATI was a GPU company while AMD was a CPU-only company so they were different markets.
ATI and AMD hold (and still hold) less marketshare in their respective markets.
After the acquisition, there still would be other competitors.

The marketplace after their proposed consolidation still had enough competition.

Yeah I don't think Hsun would be a bad choice by any means...I can see them sucking him away from Nvidia without even doing the merger.

I am sure the AMD/ATI merger was looked at...I was just wondering if it would have been in their jurisdiction to do anything about it if they had thought that action was needed. The only times I can think of a merger getting killed have involved US companies.

Oh wait...isn't T-mobile a German company? There was a merger between T-Mobile and AT&T that was denied a while ago.

Hsun won't leave NVIDIA, it's his baby.

Yes, the US gov't has some jurisdiction over US companies even when they are dealing with foreign companies. (Else, US couldn't block companies from violating embargoes.)

No, Intel has FAR more graphics processors on the market than Nvidia. Whether or not they are competitive is irrelevant. There are far more Intel HD 4000 GPUs in the wild than there are Nvidia GPUs likely of any kind. Intel is A LOT more competitive with AMD and Nvidia at the entry-level then people would have you believe.

At 10-17w, Intel's SoC is faster than AMD and Nvidia's offering. What makes this rumor even more bogus is Intel's AVX technology and where its headed for the future. Nvidia(and AMD for that matter) will have to contend with AVX 1024-bit

I didn't say anything about HD4000 or anything in Desktops or Laptops. I said mobile devices as in tablets and smartphones. You're telling me that Intel has more chips in Tablets and Smartphones than Nvidia? Are you sure about that? Please show me the proof and get back to me.
