Counterpoint: Intel Will Never Buy Nvidia

Jon Peddie takes his considerable track record and inside knowledge of the computer industry and uses it to build a convincing argument against the earlier rumor (more like Thought Experiment) that Intel could buy NVidia. It’s unlikely, regardless of how big Intel’s checkbook is, that the two companies could ever agree on the price. The […]

Rumor Mill: Intel Could Buy nVIDIA ?

Now this is a completely unfounded rumor, but a fun one to think about: Robert Cringely has posted a thought on his “I, Cringely” blog that Intel might simply buy NVidia: Intel this week cancelled Larrabee, its proposed graphics processing unit (GPU) that was intended to compete with both nVIDIA and ATi (now a part […]
