Intel increases market share, government steps in, breaks Intel into little pieces. Intel may be greedy, but they aren't stupid. They will never buy Nvidia for the same reason they won't let AMD fail. Because it would mean instant dismantling of their own company.

As you may have seen, NVIDIA announced today that it is developing high-performance ARM-based CPUs designed to power future products ranging from personal computers to servers and supercomputers.

Known under the internal codename “Project Denver,†this initiative features an NVIDIA CPU running the ARM instruction set, which will be fully integrated on the same chip as the NVIDIA GPU. This initiative is extremely important for NVIDIA and the computing industry for several reasons.

NVIDIA’s project Denver will usher in a new era for computing by extending the performance range of the ARM instruction-set architecture, enabling the ARM architecture to cover a larger portion of the computing space. Coupled with an NVIDIA GPU, it will provide the heterogeneous computing platform of the future by combining a standard architecture with awesome performance and energy efficiency.

ARM is already the standard architecture for mobile devices. Project Denver extends the range of ARM systems upward to PCs, data center servers, and supercomputers. ARM’s modern architecture, open business model, and vibrant eco-system have led to its pervasiveness in cell phones, tablets, and other embedded devices. Denver is the catalyst that will enable these same factors to propel ARM to become pervasive in higher-end systems.

Denver frees PCs, workstations and servers from the hegemony and inefficiency of the x86 architecture. For several years, makers of high-end computing platforms have had no choice about instruction-set architecture. The only option was the x86 instruction set with variable-length instructions, a small register set, and other features that interfered with modern compiler optimizations, required a larger area for instruction decoding, and substantially reduced energy efficiency.

Denver provides a choice. System builders can now choose a high-performance processor based on a RISC instruction set with modern features such as fixed-width instructions, predication, and a large general register file. These features enable advanced compiler techniques and simplify implementation, ultimately leading to higher performance and a more energy-efficient processor.

Microsoft’s announcement that it is bringing Windows to ultra-low power processors like ARM-based CPUs provides the final ingredient needed to enable ARM-based PCs based on Denver. Along with software stacks based on Android, Symbian, and iOS, Windows for ultra-low power processors demonstrates the huge momentum behind low-power solutions that will ultimately propel the ARM architecture to dominance.

An ARM processor coupled with an NVIDIA GPU represents the computing platform of the future. A high-performance CPU with a standard instruction set will run the serial parts of applications and provide compatibility while a highly-parallel, highly-efficient GPU will run the parallel portions of programs.
The result is that future systems – from the thinnest laptops to the biggest data centers, and everything in between — will deliver an outstanding combination of performance and power efficiency. Their processors will provide the best of both worlds, while enabling increased battery life for mobile solutions. We’re really excited to help engineer smarter brains for the next major era in computing.

No, no one is about to give them an x86 lic. They are trying to compete in the tablet and portable space by using ARM architecture.

I thought they couldn't make a cpu because of the x86 rights so they had to rely on other resources

ARM's already fairly supported. x86 is really only the main desktop and laptop architecture BECAUSE of Microsoft. With the implementation or ARM on windows 8, that'll allow more chip manufacturers to enter the market on a larger scale rather than having to shell out a boatload of money for an x86 license.

This is good because it means more competition against Intel. ARM can be dominant within 10 years imho.

Software will still have to be ported.

We're taking too long moving our software to x64.

That is a foolish assumption. I assume you are refering to what (was supposed to happen) to microsoft. That was because Mirsosoft really did use monopolistic powers to dominate the market and make it impossible for others to enter. No simply because it had a monopoly.

When netscape came out it was not free and it was the only browser at the time. Then microsoft made internet explorer and made it free so netscape was doomed. Then netscape sued mircosoft. End of story.
