Techies aren’t happy with the $ 1 billion deal between Nvidia and ARM


What was expected, after all, ARM chips are driving a sizable slice of the tech industry.

Google, Microsoft and Qualcomm have also allegedly shouted antitrust and are asking regulators to nullify the acquisition of ARM chip designer Nvidia, according to Bloomberg information.

Nvidia announced last September that it would acquire ARM from Japanese SoftBank for $ 40 billion. Concerns have already been raised in this regard, for example also in the light of current American-Chinese relations.

Large tech companies now, in principle, fear that after the deal, it will be more difficult or at a higher price to access ARM chips, which are still found in countless mobiles and devices around the world.

A Nvidia spokesman, on the other hand, claims that

“both regulators and consumers will only benefit” from the situation, after all, they continue to think in an “open licensing model” and a “transparent, cooperative relationship” for ARM licensors.

Neither Google nor Microsoft commented on the information, nor did Qualcomm respond immediately to Bloomberg’s request.
