Default NVIDIA CEO Denies Buyout of VIA

I guess the rumors we heard a couple months ago are just that, rumors. NVIDIA’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said yesterday that his company has no interest in buying out VIA. Apparently the company will still be making chipsets for VIA on a “whenever their processor capabilities intersect with our visual computing focus” basis. Hardly sounds like a partnership, does it?

"They don't need our money. I don't need theirs," Huang said, referring to Via. "They're doing fine. People want to create drama," he added.

Interesting.

I guess NVIDIA believes that its acquisition of Stexar has given it all the x86 expertise that it requires.

I own NVIDIA stock, but whether or not they acquire VIA I doubt it will have a siginifcant impact on the stock.

VIA is only worth $600-700 million, which NVIDIA can easily afford.

Having said that, I would love knowledge, so PM sent
