    Is it normal to talk about buying in past tense before the deal has actually been approved? At least UK has already announced they will investigate the buyout

    I believe so. It's routine for all large mergers undergo regulatory approvals (especially in host country) even though it's after the fact. In this case U.K.’s competition regulator, CMA, will look into the proposed takeover on competition grounds (ensuring the deal does not result in more expensive or low-quality products for consumers, and consider whether Arm can withdraw IP, increase prices or provide lower-quality IP licensing services to NVIDIA’s competitors before a certain time period has passed. These things are usually negotiated with regulatory bodies.

    AMD's merger with Xilinx will also go through regulatory approvals, though may be for different reasons.

    It's actually more than that, they're also worried about how it would affect UK's position as one of the technology leaders as a country, especially now that they left EU


    Yeah, but do they talk about it in past tense yet?

    If nvidia does what it says it's probably really good for uk. Authorities might require even more investment and guarantees though. Maybe something similar what france did when nokia bought alcatel-lucent(no lay offs for long period of time, keep work/r&d in france).

    If our Government was truly worried about our leadership in the tech sector they would have blocked the sale of ARM to Softbank in the first place. They didn't do that because they don't actually care and never have. All of the family silver is available for sale for the Right Price™.

    It is vacuous posturing and nothing else.

    An Intel Xeon E3-1515M costs sub $500
    An NVIDIA P5000 costs ~$1600

    So the price of +$74.000 in not due to the CPU/GPU combo...

    I know my hardware, but I know I am not "Joe-Bob" in that regards.

    Like I just pulled out 22 blades (2 x E5-2670v3, 256GB RAM I just decommed)...to a lot of people that would be an upgrade for them...to me it is old crap I will sell to our brooker.

    Why no tensor cores though. Could benefit heavily when I want to run various AI models on Spot.
    The RTX 5000 would have been a better choice.

    Beats me...the hard does seem antiquated for "cutting egde" robotics.

    Robotics that have been in development for years where you usually don't update the hardware as soon as something new comes out. And I'd count something 2 years old as being new in this regard. Likely they have plans for future versions using more AI inference focused hardware.

    I get it for the physical part (minus the compute units).
    But not for the code part (software/compute units).

    NVIDIA Closes Out Q4 & FY2021 With Another Round of Record Earnings

    I feel that they are at a point where they simply can't sell more anyway due to production limits.

    It's also interesting that Jensen doesn't view mining as a long term business opportunity which explains nicely the moves of late with 3060 and HX cards.
