NVIDIA to acquire ULi - NVIDIA to acquire ULi
Wed, December 14 2005 | 1:43PM | PermaLink Feedback?
In a surprise move, NVIDIA is in a definitive agreement to buy ULi for $52 million. This is pretty much a shock to a lot of people in the industry, as well as end users. ULi has a history of making very solid chipsets that address the low end of the market. Their products are rarely flashy, but there are usually few complaints about the overall quality and performance of their products. NVIDIA acquires a solid engineering team, as well as a local presence in Taiwan as well as the rest of Asia (which is where pretty much all motherboard companies are headquartered). Now NVIDIA will have branded products that cover a variety of markets, both AMD and Intel. Of course one of the most interesting aspects of this acquisition is the use of ULi southbridges in many products sporting an ATI northbridge. ATI has had a history of issues with their southbridges, and in some cases motherboard manufacturers have decided to go with several different ULi southbridges to address some issues with the SB400 and SB450 chipsets. The majority of ATI motherboards sold still use ATI southbridges, but the ULi based boards are still important.
