    I really donĀ“t see this happening...

    Specially when Intel has enough money to simply buy Nvidia.

    I really doubt this. It is too unlikely in my opinion.

    Someone have think we was the 1st April when he have woke up this morning ?
    ( or maybe with 2012 end of the world, we will maybe never seen the next 1st April lol ))

    If Intel want a new CEO, i doubt this will include the obligation to merge with a company as Nvidia..

    Its absolutely not in the interest of Intel to do it. ( or for Nvidia consumers ).

    ( + I m not sure Nvidia can merge with anyone, because the protection deal / contract with MS who make they take the control of Nvidia immediately ( 51% of titles reserved) in case of any sold or merge of the company )

    Either most of you are being sarcastic, or are genuinely this short-sighted.

    If this does happen, it is so far from a good thing that it might as well be in another universe.

    Basically, you'll end up with a duopoly in both CPU AND GPU segments, where you will get less and less value for what you pay for.

    The whole idea is to keep competition alive to keep them trying to outdo each other. The only real competition Intel has right now are from ARM CPUs but they don't compete with Intel in the segment that I personally find most important to me: x86 CPUs.

    This (like already said) - a dream come true!

    Such development will be awesome! And the resulting company - best placed to produce ground-braking tech and devices.

    I don't know how much truth is in this news, but I'll keep my fingers crossed till at least other major developments!

    That would be nightmarish, I hope it never happens. What would nvidia even gain? They're doing fine in mobile, enterprise and GPGPU while intel is struggling.

    was thinking the same thing.
    How is this a good thing to be a dream ? Rather, nightmare.
    Flexibility of mid and low budget pc market would be totally collapsed.

    .

    Again, Intel will not merge with nvidia because they search a new CEO lol.. i dont know from where come this rumor (Some bank investor have surely not get enough money from his Intel and Nvidia shares this year and want a little bonus before the end of the year.. ) And specially not in the hand of the CEO of Nvidia. ( lol Intel in the hand of Nvidia, what a joke.. lol better to say intel will be sold to nvidia as say like this this will be exactly the result ( so 100% impossible ) . I can tell you otellini will better come back as CEO instead of seeing this.

    In the worst case, if Intel was buy/merge with Nvidia ( if MS and the USA FTC was allright with it because they are too opponent on many sector ),
    I dont know what will happend to Nvidia and their product, it could well be the end of what it is now.

    What are you? Twelve?

    Anyway... if AMD/ATi go out of business, maybe they'll be a couple years of good stuff, but after that... if you think that a monopoly is going to be a good thing in the long run, you're going to have a bad time.

    it will not be a problem for AMD, in reality it will benefit to AMD, specially on GPU side. because if any merge of Intel + Nvidia happend, the only result will be the end of Nvidia .

    - CUDA: intel will bring full compatibility with CPU and so rewrite it completely.. as Intel cant do anyting in x86 they will need bring the code to AMD too,

    - PhysX? will be included in havoc and rewrited for include full optimisation for CPU, and so benefit to AMD as Intel will absolutely have no choice to share the library, code etc with them.

    - GPGPU board ? will disapear for profit Phy- Xeon board ( maybe a mix between them ) and this will profit too on AMD side.. as software will need to be usable by AMD too.

    If it become a monopoly, Intel need absolutely give the access to the library/code/instructions to AMD ( as it is for SSEE 4 and other x86 instructions ) for balance the market or Intel will face a situation where their acts push the market to use only Intel. ( and we know what is doing the USA FTC when this is happening ( They dissolve the company in multiple little pieces and sold them for bring competition back ) .. Conclusion, if Nvidia merge with intel, Nvidia disappear. Its why MS own a contract who permit them to take the control of nvidia at any time if a company try to buy Nvidia.

    lol this guy makes me laugh. So your saying you get a current nvidia card because you know the company will be better int he future??? how does getting any branded card make it better in the future, your still going to have to upgrade to a new model....your a moron.

    Competition is sorely needed in the computer market so intel whooping AMDs ass all the time isn't the best thing for consumers.

    Nvidia doesnt own anything besides nvidia now stfu.

    Like wise u make me giggle hahaa Of course im going to upgrade to a new card sooner or later with a brand called NVIDIA u moron hahaha. As far as intel whooping amd ass Intel been doing it for a while now and amd has nothing to counter intels offering interms of raw power and guess what amd's been taking it on the ass since intel core 2 duo came out ;) from there they where never gain superiority over intel.
