Qualcomm Looks to Acquire AMD
Rikki Wright / 8 years ago
We all know that AMD is struggling in the current market place, NVIDIA keeps crushing every graphics card they release and Intel are so efficient with releasing more powerful processors that AMD are just running in circles. Intel release on a Tick Tock schedule, while AMD seem to produce on a Tick….tick….tick broken clock schedule. They used to be the top company in both fields; however things have changed, badly.
Another of AMDs sub-divisions is the server sector, probably not what AMD is most well known for, but they are there and a formidable force. Well it seems that Qualcomm wants a slice of the action and are poised to go into talks to buy out the struggling technology giant.
It’s currently unknown whether Qualcomm is looking to purchase just the server side to help itself or if it is looking to purchase the whole company. If Qualcomm was looking at a complete buy-out, it would only need a relatively small $3billion, a fifth of Qualcomms cash position.
With the buy out, we could see more powerful mobile phones to play games on thanks to the integrated graphics of the APU range, or better and high turn over processors thanks to Qualcomms Snapdragon division.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you think this buy-out would benefit everyone involved or could this be the end of AMD? Let us know in the comments.
