United States joins list of countries investigating Nvidia's ARM acquisition

There’s even more bad news for Nvidia’s acquisition of ARM. Yet another agency has concerns over Nvidia having total control over the UK chip company which provides blueprints to heaps of tech companies including Apple and Samsung. Just days after the UK launched a six month inquiry into the deal, the United States Federal Trade Commission has decided to also step in to scrutinise the move. 

During Nvidia’s fiscal third-quarter earnings conference call, CFO Colette Kress revealed the FTC’s interest in the acquisition (via Protocol). No further details were provided about the FTC’s investigation, but given the UK’s investigation, and the European Commission extending their already ongoing look into the matter, it doesn’t bode well.
