TSMC and Foxconn show interest in buying Arm, amping up the bidding race

ARM has been at the center of all the buzz since Apple announced they’re going to move their Mac computers to Apple Silicon, based on ARM. SoftBank is selling Arm Holdings now, and after interest from NVIDIA, and Samsung, it looks like TSMC and Foxconn have also shown interest.

The information comes from a report by Nikkei Asian Review. Apparently, SoftBank has approached quite a few companies for the sale, and TSMC and Foxconn are in the mix too. We have heard that NVIDIA is in advanced talks, while Samsung is interested in a share, and Apple does not want to purchase the company, likely because they don’t want to draw attention from regulatory bodies. However, TSMC or Foxconn owning Arm will be a nice way for Apple to have some control over it.

Of course, Arm is likely to go to NVIDIA at this point, from what we have heard about the progress of their talks in comparison to those of the others. However, none of this is set in stone, so let’s wait and watch.
