  • Letter from Jensen confirming the sale.

    Seems like a very smart move for Nvidia, x86 computing will get less popular over the next decade as Arm based chips replace them but this just another merger of two massive companies that are monopolies in their own right.

  • Wonder what they will use them for, tegra maybe? But how big of a market is there for that, that would justify the purchase

    You're probably thinking about consumer, but this could also make a huge difference for them in other areas

    Nvidia already made a big acquisition last year with Mellanox and now ARM.
    Now with the whole hardware integration they can go balls deep in the data center business

    Obviously still hard to tell how exactly they'll move, but Intel should definitely be scared

  • W for Nvidia tbh

    yeah exactly
    Data Centers are far more concerned with power draw and heat output than regular end users

    seems like ARM based chips will replace most general purpose x86 CPUs & GPUs overtime and Data Centers will be the first part of the market to switch, Amazon already is using tons of ARM chips for their cheaper Cloud computing options

    for specific tasks ASICs have already started replacing general purpose chips and I think we will see more ASICs overtime for a wider range of workloads

  • This deal will not go through. It will be regulated into the ground

    Its probably more about taking the tech and either scaling up, or merging it with their own tech.
