One jacket to rule them all.

With Nvidia getting ARM Intel is in a bit of a pickle. AMD is squeezing them in consumer market and now Nvidia will just overthrow them in server world. Full solution from Nvidia with racks powerd by Ampere, ARM and Mellanox. Run buy Nvidia software. It will be more compact, with insane horsepower and use less power than Intel servers.

Monopolising the ARM market, I don't agree with it one bit.

They can't.


But what they can do is precisely what Avet mentioned. Full blown in-house solution with tons of compute horsepower.

Yeah, even if they could there'd be little incentive for them to divert from ARMs current licensing model and break its customer neutrality; It would instantly shatter most of ARMs revenue income and tank the value and influence of something they've just spent billions on.

They've thrown in a lot of sweeteners that should help the deal pass regulators and convince customers to stick around long term (Which may become critical soon with the rise of RISC-V), but given how many regions and countries have fingers in this pie (Obviously, transfer of ARM to US owners will be a touchy one to navigate with Chinese regulatory bodies atm) it's still probably going to be a year or two until they can get the go ahead from all bodies.

This is all assuming the US/EU/UK/China pass this and allow it.

Which is unlikely with China not wanting them to go to US control.

Now that I think about it. Nvidia spent more in one day than AMD has made in revenue in like 8-10 years

Contrary to popular belief AMD is not even in the same league as Intel and Nvidia.

I've not heard anyone say that.

Really, I haven't. I have no memory of anyone, whether Facebook newbs or forum dwellers, assuming AMD has anywhere near the value of Nvidia.
