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.

AMD bought ATi to enter into the chipset market
Now they got a new enemy nVidia .
nVidia has done more for AMD than ATi has for intel so this may or may not be a good gamble .mind you i'm not saying that ATi is weak but nVidia is the king with a capital k.

Just imagine where AMD would be if nVidia had made nforce /nforce2 chipset exclusively for intel instead of AMD . Very few people would have bought Athlon XP
