According to foreign media reports, AMD is in-depth negotiations with Xilinx, hoping to take over Xilinx. The transaction price may exceed $30 billion, and it can be concluded as soon as next week.

Searing responded by saying it would not comment on any market rumors.

According to the unspoken rules of the industry, such a response generally means that the two sides do have contact, but no final agreement has been reached or it is not convenient to make public for the time being.

Xilinx is a leader in the field of FPGA programmable chips, and has a very high position in the data center and other fields. If amd can take it, it can greatly expand its business scope and keep up with emerging markets such as AI and 5g base stations.

Some analysts believe that,It is logical for AMD to acquire Xilinx. The combination of the capabilities of CPU, GPU and FPGA is the future of the chip. Intel has acquired Altera, the FPGA manufacturer, before. Now AMD is in good business condition and has sufficient cash. Acquisition of Xilinx can better compete with Intel.

At the same time, NVIDIA's acquisition of arm with a large amount of money has further expanded its business map, which is believed to have a great impact on AMD.

In the second quarter of this year, amd achieved revenue of $1.93 billion, a year-on-year increase of 26%, and a net profit of $157 million, a year-on-year increase of 349%.
