Intel reportedly offering over $2bn for a competitor to Arm


With Nvidia in the process of buying Arm, the chip designer whose chips power billions of devices, focus has shifted over onto an even more open alternative: RISC-V. That’s led to increased interest in companies wielding RISC-V to create computer chips, reportedly even from x86 darling, Intel.

A report from Bloomberg citing unnamed sources claims Intel is interested in purchasing SiFive, a fabless semiconductor company building chips with the RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA). The deal would be for more than $2B, way in excess of SiFive’s last reported valuation of $500m, which seems like a lot but comes quite significantly shy of Nvidia’s Arm takeover at $40B.
