Other companies interested in NVIDIA instead

DailyTech previously reported analysts believed NVIDIA was a prime candidate for an Intel acquisition. Other analysts predict Intel is unlikely to acquire NVIDIA. Nevertheless, there’s interest in NVIDIA from other tech companies. Joe Osha, an analyst for Merril Lynch stated “We don't think there's a solid rationale for a deal and we don't think it's going to happen." According to sources it would appear other industry players were interested in NVIDIA, though no formal negotiations have occurred.

Craig Barret, Intel Chairman had this to say about the rumors "We treat investments and things of that sort like fine wine and we never discuss them before their time, so we don't comment on rumors of that sort.” Other analysts such as Doug Freedman from American Technology Research remain skeptical over a possible Intel acquisition.

Speculation of a NVIDIA purchase rumors began popping up shortly after the AMD and ATI merger.

I am also wondering about this statement and it makes the entire article meanless. With AMD and ATI, the only real company that should be interested in NVidia would be Intel.

I think it more likely all other companies would not desired NVidia to joined forces with Intel - especially AMD.

Just think if NVidia some how could not make GPU for Intel cpus for some reason by purchasing some other company - this would be good for AMD because Intel market would be limited. It will really give AMD an unfair advantage and should not be allow to happen.

I don't believe any of these statements.
