Weeks ago I had a 1060, which had 5 ports to plug in monitors, but it was only possible to run 4 at a time. Now I have to run 4 monitors + Oculus rift = 5 monitors on my 2080 Ti. I know that I can use a usb type c to hdmi adapter to use that port for a monitor.

Nvidia probably the only ARM prospect

Softbank and Nvidia want to have agreed a deal in the next few weeks, according to the insider - however, the negotiations could take longer or even fail. At least Softbank cannot flirt with another prospect. According to Bloomberg information, Nvidia is currently the only company that is targeting an ARM acquisition.

Alternatively, the chip developer's IPO, which was originally planned for 2023, is still under discussion. The IPO could be preferred to insiders after 2021. According to analysts, ARM could be worth around $ 44 billion in an IPO in 2021. The valuation could therefore rise to $ 68 billion by 2025.

Nvidia is worth more than Intel

Nvidia's market value has increased 20-fold in the past five years - to more than $ 260 billion. Since the beginning of the year alone, it has risen by 68 percent. At the beginning of July, Nvidia Intel replaced as the most valuable chip manufacturer in the United States. In terms of sales, however, Nvidia is significantly behind Intel. The acquisition of ARM would make graphics chip specialist Nvidia an even bigger rival for Intel and AMD.
