Definitely it should, but Intel is a bit too late.

Intel is slowly trying to enter the mobile market. How will it impact the sales of ARM in future? Should ARM be worried about this move by Intel ?

Seems to be a common outcome for ARM's "partners". Work with them until you put them out of business. I suspect, in time, ARM will want "all the cake" in a lot more areas.

I have always thought a merger of the two makes perfect sense.

ARM and Imagination used to work together. ARM used to sell the combination of ARM processors and Imagination graphics into the mobile phones with some success. That's when ARM decided it wanted to have all the cake and went out and bought Falanx Microsystems and turned them into its GPU unit.

I would say a tie-up between ARM and Imagination Tech makes more of a sense. AMD is a completely different kettle of fish.

Don't see why ARM would want to acquire AMD. AMD does not have anything to offer - no longer has a fab, its new server parts do not compete with the current Intel ones and its design execution is not the best in the industry. ATI graphics? maybe but ARM already has its own GPU offerings.

ARM is the only competitor to Intel. AMD is not in the game. The best AMD can do now is allow itself to be bought by ARM.
