NVIDIA to acquire VIA
We're not suggesting you put any stock in rumors, particularly from DigiTimes, but there's something about the chatter that NVIDIA is in talks to acquire VIA that makes sense -- or maybe we're just blinded by our desire to see all that unnecessary capitalization finally come together. Still, whispers are just whispers, and while we can see NVIDIA trying to bolster its GPU offerings with VIA's x86 CPU offerings -- and perhaps snag some of that Crysis-capable Isaiah thunder -- we'll believe it when we see it. After all, the last we heard NVIDIA was set to buy AMD, remember?
