Nvidia argues it should be allowed to buy Arm because Intel and AMD are really, really good

You might think that Nvidia, Intel, and AMD are all throaty, and if you look at their marketing, well, you’d be right to think that most of the time. But these are also companies that are very dependent on the technology of others, especially when it comes to complementary devices, such as gaming laptops and even supercomputers.

Watch CES 2022 and you’ll find plenty of laptops wielding an AMD processor alongside an Nvidia graphics processor or an Intel processor with an Nvidia graphics processor. Maybe even the odd AMD GPU in the mix. But what’s particularly fascinating is how Nvidia refers to this complementary relationship as one of the reasons it should be allowed to buy UK chipmaker Arm for $ 40 billion.
