UK government orders six-month inquisition into Nvidia's ARM acquisition

It was back in September 2020 that we first found out Nvidia was set to acquire the UK chip designer ARM for a cool $40 Billion. ARM is a pretty big player when it comes to chips, licensing blueprints to all sorts of other companies like Apple, Samsung, and Qualcomm. It’s a very important company in the UK technology scene. 

Back then, Nvidia announced plans to expand ARM’s Cambridge headquarters into a new AI focussed research and development site. AI seemed to be a driving part of Nvidia’s goals with the acquisition and the company expected the deal to be done within 18 months.
