NVIDIA is offering Softcom about $ 40 billion for Arm, but its composition will not be the biggest challenge in the entire planned acquisition. The British authorities have recently called on it to examine it in detail, raising issues of national security in particular. After all, British regulators have been very active in this regard recently, and they have decided to examine the acquisition of Xilinx, which AMD is seeking, and even the sale of Intel’s NAND Flash business to SK Hynix.
However, in the case of NVIDIA, caution is indeed appropriate, as it would want to dominate Arm’s processor architecture, which many other major companies such as Apple, Samsung, MediaTek, Qualcomm and countless others rely on. Is it so desirable for NVIDIA to buy such a company, which is a competition for many of these companies? He had previously expressed his dissent Microsoft and Google
and due to the development of the situation, currently only a great optimist would bet on the successful acquisition of Arm by NVIDIA.
Cristiano Amon, the upcoming CEO of Qualcomm, already has a plan to create an alternative for the acquisition of ARM by a single company. As Amon mentioned for The Telegraph
, is willing to join a community of companies that would decide to buy Arm from SoftBank and act as an association of investors in which no one really has the upper hand, thus ensuring that Arm continues to operate independently. It could be argued that it is already owned by one company, but it does not use it and is not interested in using the products that Arm creates. On the other hand, NVIDIA wants to build its success in the field of servers on the ARM architecture, which it did recently with the introduction of Grace processors, and according to some, it only reduced its chances of success.
Amon also said that Qualcomm had already contacted other companies that had the same opinion and that discussions had already taken place on the subject. Only two were specifically named, namely Amazon and Tesla.
In April, Jensen Huang expressed his conviction that the agreement would be concluded and that Arm would pass into NVIDIA’s hands next year. It also wants to provide guarantees that Arm will operate independently even under NVIDIA and that it will not abuse its position in the competition.
