AMD Reportedly In Advanced Talks To Buy Xilinx for Roughly $30 Billion

In what could be a move to broaden its attack on rival chipmakers Intel and Nvidia, the Wall Street Journal reports that AMD is in advanced talks to buy FPGA-maker Xilinx in a deal that could top $30 billion. The talks are said to have resumed after a recent pause, so it’s unclear if they will result in a successful acquisition, but a decision could come as early as next week. We’ve reached out to AMD for comment and will update accordingly.

Xilinx is primarily known for its FPGA products. The two companies have a history of working in close collaboration on deep learning projects, such as the Xilinx deep learning solution on AMD EPYC processors (among many other pursuits).
