NVIDIA’s ARM acquisition may be dead in the water

Way back in September 2020, NVIDIA announced its intention to purchase semiconductor manufacturer ARM for $40 billion. Fast forward almost a year-and-a-half later and now there's word that NVIDIA might be backing away from the acquisition.

Fortnite on iPhone is back thanks to NVIDIA GeForce NOW

Although Epic Games has long bemoaned the state of affairs on app stores, particularly the Apple App Store, it was Fortnite's banishment from iOS that became the metaphorical straw that broke the camel's back.

NVIDIA Arm acquisition faces another hurdle with FTC lawsuit

Most people probably don't know it, and they certainly shouldn't have to, but Arm's processor technologies pretty much run the world today. It's present not just in smartphones and tablets, including Apple's iPhones, but also in supercomputers, cars, and quite a number of IoT products. It is because of that rather critical position that NVIDIA's plan to buy Arm from SoftBank is meeting a lot of resistance, and the latest to fall into place could be the final nail in the acquisition's coffin, unless the two companies can convince the FTC otherwise.

Its latest trick is to support Microsoft Edge, which, coincidentally, opens the doors to its unofficial arrival on the Xbox.
