AMD wird Ageia nicht kaufen
Heute nachmittag berichteten wir bereits über mögliche Übernahmepläne des Physik-Engine-Entwicklers Ageia durch AMD.
In einem Statement gegenüber dem Inquirer will nun Richard Huddy, aus dessen Interview die Informationen stammen sollen, diese Aussage dementiert haben. Seine Worte wären aus dem Zusammenhang gerissen und falsch interpretiert worden, so Huddy.
Nachfolgend finden Sie einen Auszug aus dem oben erwähnten Statement :
I think my words have been taken to mean more than they really do.
I said that I wouldn't rule it out and I said we're not likely to splash $100M on a PPU vendor, and I said that we go through the arguments every few months.
That's certainly not something that I would have headlined as "AMD considers buying Ageia”. The thought has certainly passed through our minds - but then humans think about a lot of things, and if you look at what I said I also point out that the cost is crazy high, so actually I come very close to ruling it out...
As far as I can see there's really no news here. Everyone in the industry understands that Ageia's primary aim is to just to be bought, and we're one of the companies that needs to work out whether we think it makes sense.
