NVIDIA is reportedly in "advanced talks" to buy ARM

Sources familiar with the matter told Bloomberg that NVIDIA is the only party in serious discussions with SoftBank to acquire ARM. Both companies are aiming to reach a deal in the coming weeks. Nonetheless, sources caution that no final decision has been made and negotiations could drag on or fall apart.

With NVIDIA leading the high-end graphics sector, an acquisition of ARM can boost its position in the semiconductor industry where every chip used in mobile devices, smart cars, data centers and networking gear relies some ARM intellectual property.

Bloomberg reported more than a week ago that NVIDIA reached out to SoftBank about a potential deal. SoftBank is exploring options to sell part or all of its stake in ARM through a private deal or public stock listing.
