That's actually not a bad idea, although I imagine Intel wouldn't think so. In any case, I assumed that the takeover would be hostile.

Given the run up in NVidia's share price it would be a pretty costly move -- especially considering hostile takeovers usually need to offer a significant premium to get enough shareholders to bite.

God it feels so good to be right. I will now laugh like a 12 year old child.


Since when do we take Fudzilla as a definitive source? Not that the deal absolutely doesn't exist, but it's not exactly confirmed yet.

Incidentally if you check the TR Twitter feed you'll see Kampman dumping cold water on the whole deal. That even includes the more limited-scale Intel patent licensing deal with AMD that I thought might happen based on these rumors, much less the full-bore AMD-GPUS-in-Intel rumor.

Congratulations, your reading comprehension skills still suck. Replacing the NVidia patent cross-licensing with AMD patent cross-licensing does not imply that they're going to integrate Radeons.
