The semiconductor industry has not come out of the shock of NVIDIA's $40 billion acquisition of arm, and AMD is likely to start buying Xilinx, which is said to be worth up to $30 billion, and will determine whether it will come true in two weeks at the earliest.
AMD's main business is CPU and GPU chips, while Xilinx is the largest FPGA chip manufacturer in the world at present. Altera was the first company in the past, which was purchased by Intel for 16.7 billion US dollars in 2015.
In terms of transaction value, the value of high-value companies has risen rapidly in recent years. Intel spent $16.7 billion, and after five years went to AMD, the cost increased to $30 billion.
Although it costs a lot of money to acquire Xilinx by AMD, the market value of AMD is 100 billion US dollars. If the cash is not enough, we can use the stock to top it. The key is that after acquiring Xilinx, we can make up for the shortage in the data center. FPGA chips are still very valuable.
But whether or not to buy, this matter is still quite mysterious, the current two sides are silent, do not comment, but the market is still worried, on the one hand, AMD money is not enough, on the other hand, worry about whether it can really play 1 1
The deal is likely to be announced next week or next week, AMD will release Q3 quarterly results next week, which is a good time to announce major acquisition information.
However, even without the acquisition of Xilinx, AMD's Q3 performance will be very good. In the previous Q2 quarter, 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%.
