    This likely spells doom for all competition in the computing markets, across all kinds of devices and solutions.

    Well, NVIDIA already have ARM CPU, even has their own core design (Project Denver). So if they want to (or are able to do that well), they can already do that. Buying ARM is not going to change that too much.
    Obviously, NVIDIA would want to pair their GPUs with their own ARM CPU if they can. However, even in the HPC market, good support for popular software is still very important. It will take some time before most important software toolkit are available in ARM64 binary (The Fujitsu supercomputer might accelerate that, but it's a very different architecture).

    I believe from the software angle the CUDA on ARMS preview is available (June 2019) for ARMS AI and HPC applications. A concerted effort by Nvidia to complete the full stack is likely since it will play a major role in creating consolidated systems using their own GPU's and CPU's.
