LOL..you fool.

In a move that is bound to make Webmasters of sites that have AMD in the URL feeling frustrated and left out in the cold, Nvidia bought AMD today, April 1, 2002. In a move that had everyone fooled, Nvidia, using excess nForce inventory in the channel to do a stock swap with AMD, has created a new company out of the takeover - AmVidia.

Welcome aboard AOA Forums, whatever!

Well heyell, not everyone marks April 1st with a big "watch out" on their calendars. They learn to, eventually.

I really don't think Nvidia could cough up the cash(or stock or any assets) to buy AMD anyway

I can't believe you fell for that. It's so tongue in cheek that it's almost impossible to take seriously.

"As a Dell spokesman told us, "You know, once you get called names on Truckshardware.com, your family sees it, your mother sees it, and everyone just gets upset, and there's tears, lawsuits, and a lot of general unhappiness. I have to spend a lot of time explaining to my Aunt Mae that there are no aliens, monsters under the bed, or satanic cults in our company. I really hate that Truck Jones. Ooh. Don't print that. He scares me. I think he is developing some sort of death ray. Ooh. Don't say that, too. Okay, interviews over.""

Please don't tell me you took that seriously.

nVidia buying AMD is not so farfetched. This may sound a little odd to some of you, but nVidia a more valuable company than AMD. nVidia has a market cap of about 6.2B compared to AMD's market cap of 4.7B. Of course these are nothing compared to Intel's market cap of 200B or Microsoft's valuation of 300B. I can very well envision a scenario where nVidia would buy AMD via a stock swap or even debt. It would allow for some major vertical integration of components if nVidia decides to be a major player in the mainboard market. I can definately envision low cost PCs with integrated everything ala nForce. Developing the CPU would help them out in developing their chipsets. Anyway, that's just my 2 cents.
