    EU will look into Nvidia Arm takeover plans next month

    And what is to be done as Arm China 'declares independence'?

    Honestly, I'd consider Nvidia owning ARM as superior to ARM being owned by an investment fund.

    Personally, an independent vehicle financed by Apple, Nvidia, Google, Intel, AMD, Qualcomm, Microsoft, Amazon & Samsung (and making sure China has no aspect of control) sounds the best option

    Definitely better an investment fund owns it than nvidia, believing nvidia will keep the current open licensing model arm operates is being extremely naive.

    An interest group composed of relevant stakeholders like you mention could be an interesting option but I see them start to slow down arm development with demands and disagreements between each other.

    True, but I could see an investment firm thinking what can we cut to make more money, there not called vulture funds for nothing.

    if they deny, it's corruption. governments and the FTC allowed AMD WITHOUT question, without one word against the buyout of XLINX.

    Let NVIVIA expand already!! the industry needs NEW for things to progress, and NVIDIA has more than enough years of experience to do ARM justice.

    Nvidia takeover of ARM is definitely not a big deal, infact Apple and Samsung are overcharging their phones compared to the cost of RnD and material usage.

    It should never have left the UK in the first place, typical Britain selling off anything that's worth a damn !

    That's a very apples to oranges comparison, xilinx main business is not licensing ip that's basically used by everyone in the industry, that's basically the only thing ARM does and almost every company in the semiconductor space depends on them for the core IP.

    There's a simple litmos test for Nvidia acquiring ARM: what can't they do under the current model that would require them to acquire the company?
    Allow me to answer, basically they can't squash their competition that's what.
