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.

AMD has Chartered doing manufacturing for them now to help with this. In addition to the already mentioned upgrade of Fab 30, AMD is also going to be building a fab in upstate New York unless that has changed.

For the next two years, the ATI division will be doing things pretty much the way they have been when it comes to manufacturing. Once AMD has their fabs upgraded and the new one(s) built, we may see the graphics division manufacturing brought in-house, or moved to a 65nm process at Chartered.
