Microsoft "Microsoft and Nvidia have an agreement in place that spells out terms relating to a possible acquisition of the graphics and mobile processor manufacturer, regulatory documents indicate. The deal gives Microsoft the exclusive right to match any offer for 30% or more of Nvidia's outstanding shares by a third-party." The agreement appears to be over 10 years old, dating back to the time of the contract for the GPU of the original X-Box. It has likely gained relevance again now that Microsoft allegedly wants to more closely control hardware of tablets running its upcoming Windows 8 OS.

Wow, amusing to see old paper rags being reduced to push speculative uninformed crap to compete with other on line sources of speculative uninformed crap. Not that they were any good when they were printed on dead trees, but amusing none the less...
