Nvidia and ARM’s Deal Kept on Hold as others Lodged Complaints Against this Deal

The Company Nvidia and ARM’s Deal made recently of around forty billion dollars which are facing problems from within the country and even abroad in its proceedings. Jensen Huang, who is the CEO of Nvidia, said that even if the deal breaks, it will not affect the company’s progress in any way. It will be made sure that the company exhibits the same level of high performance and credibility as it did before, so there is nothing to worry about.

Nvidia and ARM’s Deal

The CEO, Jensen Huang, at a conference mentioned at a live interview that the company wishes and supports the creation of new and different creations of Central Processing Unites CPUs as this will be favorable to Nvidia and bring it prosperity in the coming years.

This is because of the fact that Nvidia makes Graphic processing Units GPUs which would be a blend of Artificial Intelligence AI with other things. With the increased popularity of Artificial intelligence and computer tech, Nvidia is not afraid of falling behind as it believes its better days are ahead, and a single deal can not change it.

Huang further added, “the company will work hard to move forward in a nice way without bringing any misfortune to anyone. We totally support CPUs creation, and we actually want it to flourish as CPU is the basis of any system. The system can not work without CPUs as the operating system is dependent on them. Because of the CPU, there exist the chance for advancements and acceleration in the future of computing.

In September 2020, The Nividia company first made a decision to buy off ARM from Softbank. From then onwards till now, it has been more than a year that the deal is still left hanging and the issues holding back the deal from proceeding have not yet been resolved. No one knows exactly for how much longer will this continue.

The superpowers United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, and China are all waiting for the results as this deal will impact everyone by affecting the chip industry throughout the world.

ARM has never favored one above another; instead, it has always stayed neutral in licensing its services. Its chip designs and software have been licensed to different companies around the world, including Google, Samsung, Apple, and Qualcomm, etc. These and many other companies throughout the world have been using ARM’s chip designs to create their own chips, which are custom made consisting of their own specific features.

The fear that they have is that if the deal between Nvidia and ARM works out, then it might not allow ARM to sell its developments to other companies. If such decisions are made by Nvidia, then ARM will no longer remain neutral, and it could result in huge losses to many companies who are relying on ARM for their device’s software and chip designs. This is the major reason the deal is being held back by the ARM. A lot of third parties have been involved in holding it back as they are all under threat.

It has been reported by Bloomberg that many companies who rely on ARM have filed complaints against this deal. These companies include Google, Microsoft, Qualcomm. On the other hand, Nvidia, discussing their concerns, stated that this will not be true, and Nvidia will allow ARM to maintain its neutrality towards other companies around the world. The companies are still afraid because unless there is an official deal that stands this statement, Nvidia can not be trusted.

Even if Nvidia does allow ARM to work with other companies, there is no guarantee that in the future, it will not stop ARM from doing so. Since ARM would be in a deal with Nvidia, it will not be able to go against Nvidia on such an issue.

Huang said that if Nvidia and ARM join hands, then it will be beneficial for British chip designers as they will be able to look through the researchers and developments and learn things that have been laid hidden or concealed. If it is looked at in this regard, then it seems to be a beneficial deal for both parties.

Huang, while talking about the advantages of ARM and Nvidia being partners, stated that the R&D scale would be increased at a great pace as ARM, which is very successful in making smartphones, together with the Nvidia, which is successful in computing, would form an excellent team that will make amazing inventions in the future.

Nvidia knows the amount of potential ARM carries as it has purchased ARM’s services before for making a twelve-core CPU. It has also used ARM’s Orin system, which is designed on a chip. So Nvidia knows what capabilities ARM holds and that together, they will flourish at a great pace and become unstoppable.

Huang said that if this deal works out somehow and is not held back any longer because of the interruption of other companies, then the world will see a new future with extraordinary technology, one of its kind.

For the time being, this deal between the two parties has been kept on hold, and their initial deadline is in the initial half of next year that is 2022. In the previous month of October, it was stated by the European Commission of the European Union that an investigation has to be done on this deal to work out in-depth possibilities of how it will proceed and what outcomes everyone can expect. This investigation will decide the fate of the deal and if it will be successful or resolved by the officials.
