Chip giant Intel wants to take over arch-rival AMD according to an American media report. Because of his CEO Lisa Su!
Intel wants to take over AMD. This rumor was loud
a news site for the electronics industry, at CES 2019 in Las Vegas. Reportedly, managers from the lower management level are told that Intel is thinking about the takeover. Most analysts who interviewed EEtimes should have rejected this rumor, but they were flexible. According to EETimes, however, there are good reasons for such a takeover.
So Intel is still looking for a new CEO, after June 2018
Brian Krzanich resigned because of a relationship issue as CEO of Intel.
Krzanich had at the
Specter Meltdown Crisis
a few months
previously did not receive a good photo.
After the resignation of Krzanich more than half a year has passed.
Lisa Su, CEO of AMD, brought their business back to success after many years of weakness and also held an impressive keynote speech at CES. In particular, Su announced several AMD processors for notebook, desktop PC and data center already produced with 7-nm technology. While Intel is still introducing processors manufactured in a 10 nm process. At CES AMD was a lot fresher and more durable than Intel. That impressed visitors to the fair.
However, it is likely that the antitrust authorities oppose such a takeover. As a result, Intel would take an absolutely dominant position in processors for servers and desktop PCs and notebooks. This would be the US The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) never agrees, according to many market observers.
Some observers say, however, that the semiconductor market is nowadays not so much limited to CPUs for PCs. Especially due to the strength of Nvidia in GPUs for AI applications and data centers, Intel and AMD could no longer form a monopoly. In addition, companies such as Apple have been producing their own processors for a long time and are therefore independent from Intel or AMD. In addition, Google, Facebook and Amazon would also design their own chips.
In this context, market observers point out that Intel may be more interested in Lisa Su than in AMD. The way AMD has made it from the permanent loser of the finally returning competitor of Intel, impresses market experts.
