Bargain hunting

The shady underbelly of COMPUTEX that is the rumour-mill of Ye Olde Taipei in June, has produced its first spicy HEXUS.bean this year - apparently NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang may be over here with some shopping in mind, and not just not for souvenirs.

When tech industry aristocracy all gather in one place, the HEXUS bean cup starts to overfloweth, and more than one highly placed source has let it be known they've heard NVIDIA may be looking to embrace another technology company to the green bosom. Permanently.

Prior to AMD's acquisition of ATi Technologies, NVIDIA came very, very close to acquiring AMD itself.

Indeed, it could be said that AMD's acquisition of ATi was somewhat of a reaction to the deal which fell through between AMD and NVIDIA.  

And now we're hearing that NVIDIA is once again exploring the acquisition of the other green fabless semiconductor outfit.

Yesterday afternoon, HEXUS hacks exchanged greetings with an NVIDIA posse dutifully surrounding a beaming Jensen... was this a smile brought on by the prospect of a bit of major retail therapy?

I agree, it would give ndaamitvidia such a monopoly at the current time I can't see the US or EU agreeing to it. Maybe once Intel has larrabee out, and if it's a success, something would be possible.

Why not? Once Larabee is out then Intel will be providing competition in all areas that nVidiAMD works in.
If Nvidia did buy AMD then imo they still wouldn't be able to make CPU's as Intel would defiantly not renew the cross licence agreement.
