According to the latest info, Samsung and Intel jointly may purchase ARM. The discussion about the joint investment in ARM happens between the Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman, Lee Jae-Young, and Intel CEO, Pat Gelsinger during a conference (on May 30).
As per the report, ARM-related mergers and acquisitions have been conducted for years. It was announced in September 2020 by Nvidia that it would obtain a UK-based company. But the venture failed after monopolies in various countries. Eventually, SK Hynix, Intel, and Qualcomm also announced similar issues.
Well, Samsung may join the race, by permitting ARM’S technology to be integrated into its Exynos processor. The target of Samsung Electronic is to become the leading and foremost manufacturer in the section of the global non-memory chip market by 2030. Whereas, the acquisition of ARM can be a constructive way.
As the report suggested, Samsung will have to defeat SK Hynix, Qualcomm, and Intel. But probably two or more two companies forming an association that should not be a matter of antitrust rules & regulations.
