[bloomberg] Nvidia in Advanced Talks to Buy SoftBank’s Chip Company Arm

Quote:
Nvidia Corp. is in advanced talks to acquire Arm Ltd., the chip designer that SoftBank Group Corp. bought for $32 billion four years ago, according to people familiar with the matter.

The two parties aim to reach a deal in the next few weeks, the people said, asking not to be identified because the information is private. Nvidia is the only suitor in concrete discussions with SoftBank, according to the people.

A deal for Arm could be the largest ever in the semiconductor industry, which has been consolidating in recent years as companies seek to diversify and add scale. But any deal with Nvidia, which is a customer of Arm, would likely trigger regulatory scrutiny as well as a wave of opposition from other users.

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.

Nvidia wants desperately to get into the CPU game with a competitive product. This would give them an edge, plus access to tons of engineering data to help make their products more efficient.

Definitely a good acquisition if they go through with it.

Just do it! Give the regulators even more reason to break up your monopoly/cooperative duopoly.
