    Default Microsoft Sets Up Acquisition Deal With Nvidia

    Computer giant Microsoft has a deal in place with graphics and mobile processor manufacturer Nvidia that gives the Redmond-based company the exclusive right to equal any offers by third-parties for 30 percent or more of Nvidia’s outstanding shares. The deal effectively prevents any other company besides Microsoft from acquiring Nvidia.

    Read this on another forum..

    Microsoft has only set up a deal in which in the event someone outside offers to buy a 30% or more stake in Nvidia, they have the OPTION of buying it first.

    It's quite simple why they're doing this. Apple has expressed interest in buying Nvidia to use Tegra (possibly exclusively) for its upcoming iPads/iPhones. Microsoft is relying heavily on Nvidia SOCs to power its upcoming Windows tablets and does not want to lose this advantage to Apple should Apple buy them out.
    Makes perfect sense now.
