NVIDIA’s Agrees $40 Billion Deal for UK’s Arm


NVIDIA, the Silicon Valley-based chipmaker, has agreed to buy the UK’s Arm for $40 billion — a record semiconductor acquisition that will create a global powerhouse with a sweeping CPU and GPU portfolio.

NVIDIA will “continue Arm’s open-licensing model and customer neutrality and expand Arm’s IP licensing portfolio with NVIDIA technology” it pledged. Cambridge will remain Arm’s HQ. Customers can expect beefed up, large core chips for data centres and more powerful mobile GPUs as portfolios merge.
