Nvidia Corp. agreed to buy chipmaker Mellanox Technologies Ltd. for $6.9 billion, gaining expertise to help it push into the growing market for data center components. Nvidia's bid of $125 per share, which is equivalent to about $6.9bn, is a full billion dollars more than Mellanox was valued at, at close of trading on Friday.

Nvidia is set to acquire data center chipmaker Mellanox for around $7bn after reportedly outbidding Intel, accounts have claimed. Our vision is that datacenters are the most important computers in the world today...

'The emergence of AI and data science, as well as billions of simultaneous computer users, is fuelling skyrocketing demand on the world's data centres,' says Nvidia founder and chief executive Jensen Huang of the motivation behind what is Nvidia's largest ever acquisition. To deal with this, data centers in future will be built as though they are single giant computers "with tens of thousands of compute nodes", requiring inter-connections that let them work in parallel. Mellanox is an interconnect company, with a range of Infiniband and Ethernet network adapters and switches, as well as a line of products descended from Tilera's processors. With its ownership of Mellanox, Nvidia hopes to go forward and "optimise datacenter-scale workloads across the entire computing, networking and storage stack to achieve higher performance, greater utilization and lower operating cost for customers." . "I am particularly thrilled to work closely with the visionary leaders of Mellanox and their incredible people to invent the computers of tomorrow". Waldman added that the combination of Nvidia and Mellanox was "a natural extension of our longstanding partnership".
