Texas Instruments might want to sell OMAP

Written by Fuad Abazovic

If not all
Sunny California is just as good as cloudy Taiwan to pick us some of the latest rumours, and the one that we keep hearing from several sources claims that Texas Instruments is up for sale. It is not clear if someone might take over the whole company or if we are talking about TI’s OMAP business unit that makes the ARM compatible chips, but it’s certain that a few companies are eyeing the opportunity.

We also heard that Texas Instruments doesn’t want to put a lot of effort in Windows 8 development as it puts more hopes in future Android builds. We will definitely double check with Texas Instruments about these pretty loud rumours, but it’s not clear who might be the potential buyer.

For all we know Nvidia or AMD could be potential customers and the big difference is that AMD might have a hard time raising enough cash to buy the fellow Texan chipmaker. Intel has repeatedly said that it doesn’t need ARM to maintain its lead despite the general opinion that thinks otherwise.

Intel gave up on its XScale ARM division as it didn’t like the meager profits it could generate from this skinny ASP (Average Selling Price) market.

If you'd bothered to read Semiaccurate you would know this story was broken weeks ago.

Get a clue Fudo.

Do everyone a favor and get off this site, and stop reading semiaccurate. I've know charlie for years. He's just playing with your brain with his awfully long, hateful and ultra-biased articles, well if you have one that is.

eddman: you wish me to leave because I post counterpoints to Fudo's pro-Nvidia bullshit? because I dare to tell the truth in this bastion of Nvidia crap?

I don't think I will leave. Not as long as you Nvidia ass lickers try to tell the world how good Huang and his band of incompetents are.

You are the one trolling left and right. Have you ever seen me bashing AMD/ATI ever? No. They have my respect. We all need both nvidia and AMD. What? you think if nvidia goes banckrupt all would be well? you say yes? ok, then good luck when AMD starts charging 600$ for a midrange card. Same would happen if AMD goes down. We need them both to keep prices down. Just try to get it. How old are you? 11?

I hate nVidia, but I daresay they've made a lot more money than you'll see in your lifetime, so I don't think they really care what you think.
