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.

Unlike Nvidia, AMD has the ability to sell you the CPU, GPU and chipset to go with them.

While AMD acquired debt it also increased its revenue and market cap which often offset that increased debt since it worth 15 billion (?) instead of 10 billion (?).

It all comes down to AMD ability to execute. AMD can flounder in its cpu business for the next few years if it's able to flourish with its newly founded chipset and gpu business.
