NVIDIA may announce the purchase of ARM Holdings early next week
However, like most technology-related deals these days, the purchase of ARM by NVIDIA can set off antitrust alerts. Regulatory agencies may try to strike such a deal between Sharp Investigators and ARM clients such as Samsung and Apple and put Kibosh on the transaction. If the merger stops, RMI will control ARM’s CPU core and Adreno GPU chips as well as control over the pricing of the Mali GPU line.
According to magazine, Softbank ARM is working with a small team on the final terms of the deal. The team consists of ARM CEO Simon Seger and Chief Financial Officer Yoshimitsu Goto.
