Intel will possibly acquire NVIDIA

Reuters speculates Intel is set to acquire NVIDIA. The speculation arose when NVIDIA’s shares rose 8% to $30.62 on the NASDAQ. Approximately 20 million shares were traded according to Reuters. Intel representatives declined to comment while NVIDIA representatives were unavailable. Bill Lefkowitz, options strategist, vFinance Investments believes Intel will make the announcement tonight.

This is still speculation at the moment as NVIDIA was deemed too expensive to purchase.The article claims:

Some observers said that they doubt Intel would buy NVIDIA because it's too expensive. The company has a stock market capitalization of about $10 billion, which means it would demand a far higher price than what AMD is paying for ATI.

Nevertheless, if the acquisition were to happen it would be interesting to see what Intel has in store for NVIDIA, as Intel holds the majority of the graphics market.  Intel’s primary competitor, AMD, previously acquired ATI Technologies -- NVIDIA’s primary competitor. The proposed AMD and ATI merger is nearing its final stages at the moment.

I'll be pissed. Because while I trust AMD to keep things open and keep ATI pretty much non-biased, I don't trust Intel to do the same.

I own a C2D system. How does my trust of one company over another make me a fanboy? I like AMD certainly, but I prefer the manufacturer with the faster processor over the brand on the box.

Does my trust of Mobil oil over Pennzoil(sp?) make me a Mobil fanboy?

Pfft. Idiots who make assumptions based on nothing.

So the graphics market would become blood-like?

"Heme" refers to blood.

"Heme" does not refer to blood. It refers to the red complex iron-containing pigment, to which oxygen binds.

Sorry that I have to do this, but facts are facts...
