Of course they would. This deal was stuck at a much lower share price. Since the Intel announcement ASML share price has increased by over 40%. This is like free options and a nice way to add book value to your own equity.

@resistion- ASML said up front it would offer up to 25 percent total (and the company capped Intel's stake at 15 percent). Barring a change of plan, that leaves only 5 percent for Samsung. And I personally don't think Samsung would want 20 percent. It remains to be see if Samsung even wants to buy 5 percent.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
