Should be a better result than the AMD/ATi aquisition.

Whatever the result, it isn't remotely comparable to the AMD/Ati merger. The two purchases aren't in the same league, much less ballpark....;)

My guess is that nVidia found it cheaper to buy the down and out company as opposed to being forced to license things from them at a premium later on. This could well wind up producing no products at all related to those that AGEIA tried unsuccessfully to bring to market. We'll see. After buying 3dfx nVidia scrapped everything the company had in development.

It is well known that I cannot err--and so, if you should happen across an error in anything I have written you can be absolutely sure that *I* did not write it!...;)
