      NVIDIA outbids Intel for major Israeli chip maker

      NVIDIA has reportedly made a winning offer to acquire Mellanox, a chip maker best known for its high-performance computing and networking tech. Even though it is not yet publicly confirmed, financial news outlet Calcalist and Reuters announced that NVIDIA outbid its main rival Intel by offering more than $7bn - well past the $6bn Intel decided to pay a few months ago. These offers come after Mellanox essentially offered itself for sale in October 2018, which reportedly also garnered attention from Microsoft and Xilinx.
