NVIDIA – Bringing Super Computing Power to New Forms of Computing Devices

Reading Time: 3 minutes

About five years ago, I was talking with an Intel executive who said that one of the companies he had his eye on was nVidia. At the time Intel was creating their own integrated GPU’s, but he thought there were occasions when it might have made sense for them to be able to have a discrete GPU of their own. Indeed, just recently Intel did a deal with AMD to add some of their GPU’s to some of Intel’s higher-end chipsets.

Unfortunately for Intel, an acquisition of nVida was not in the cards. Interestingly, about this same time we started hearing from some investors that they too thought nVidia would be a good acquisition target since nVidia was struggling with their mobile chip strategy and their high end computing vision had not been solidified at that time. Intel could have probably bought them at a reasonable price and who knows, an Intel and Nvidia marriage could have given Intel even more firepower for their computing arsenal today.
