Intel looking to acquire Nvidia?

Intel after Nvidia?

With CPU maker AMD having bought graphics specialists ATI, rumours have been circulating that Intel will buy Nvidia in a similar move. GameDaily reports that Nvidia shares rose eight percent on Wednesday as a result of speculation. But no announcement has been made yet, and a number of analysts think an acquisition is unlikely. Nvidia's stock market capitalization may be as much as $10 billion US - a very expensive purchase. Intel also has its own graphics technology, unlike AMD prior to the ATI buyout. Both GameDaily and Next-Gen spoke to analysts who believe the Nvidia management has a personal attachment to the company. In any case, with ATI being off-limits, Intel doesn't have much choice but to turn to Nvidia for high-end graphics.
