[SeekingAlpha] Bloomberg: Intel in talks with AMD to license GPU patents - Page 5

post #41 of 128
I think, AMD is probably evaluating how much of a competitive edge, their iGPU is..

Because Once intel gets their teeth in that..

What CPU product would amd have that's unique and compelling..

Zen is first and foremost pure CPUs so thats perhaps something Intel might use as negotiation to get GPU IPs.

Low cost and unlocked.

Still not true.... memory bandwidth is the problem.
We will see how amd will decide and what intel actually wants...

I would say the same reason this deal may happen is the same reason nvidia or intel isnt in the consoles

More like because AMD is in financial trouble, the cost of IP licensing with AMD is cheaper than with Nvidia. I can assure you this would have almost 0% to do with keeping AMD alive, because even if AMD goes belly up, Intel isn't running afoul of monopoly regulations (unless they gouge/abuse market position to the moon, then that is another story), so the US government wouldn't do a darned thing.

The report comes with Intel's cross-licensing deal with Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) due to expire in Q1 2017. Nvidia has been recording $66M/quarter in licensing revenue related to the Intel deal, which allows Intel to use Nvidia's IP in the GPUs integrated with its CPUs.
No wonder they were so bad. Cho, cho, cho!biggrin.gif

Sorry to bring reality in here but this is standard negotiating tactic. This occurs all the time in enterprise level negotiations. Intel could go either way, but to re-up with NVidia and get the best deal Intel would be stupid not to publicly entertain looking at AMD's portfolio. It keeps Nvidia honest at the negotiating table.

 

Again Negotiating 101 this is, says Yoda. We likely should not read anything else into it this early.
