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.

If AMD and ATI can make Whoopee...

I really don't beleive that it is going to happen but I thought the same with AMD and ATI. What's more now that DAAMIT is a go it would basically clear a path (or at least make it easier) for Intel to make the purchase.
My best guess as other suitors (or Intels) interest are more for the mobile cell/PDAish/convergence device market rather than high end GPUs.
So maybe TI, Samsung, Apple, or any of the Cell phone IC manufacturers are the other interested parties. I still doubt it will happen but as long as it helps my stock prices, scream it from the rooftops! Besides that Intel wine comment was awfully smug sounding.
