piku, 23 Jun 2017Mediatek should buy imagination Technologies since they sucks in graphics department Mediatek does not make their GPU. They source it from ARM.
Apple approached Imagination Tech.before about a merger but Imagination refused it. The owners could be setting on 1 billion pound and working for Apple but no, now they settle for 400 million.

Anonymous, 22 Jun 2017Some of you would never be able to be business owners. If Apple's intentions are really to buy... moreNope. But good business can still have a descent moral, and aesthetics.....This kind of money whore chancing, is the reason why the world is going crazy.....
AnonD-8419, 22 Jun 2017Imagination has taken care of Apple's graphic processing so well over the years . Now its time... moreBut you have to admit that Imagination Technologies would not have become the player they are today without Apple as a customer. No other larger ARM designer next to Apple uses PowerVR GPUs.
What has Imagination done in the last 10 years to become independent from Apple? Apple has been a loyal customer over the last 10 years. So another question is what has Imagination done to make Apple end the relationship?
Maybe Apple has become disappointed about Imagination because other companies like Qualcomm have surpassed PowerVR's latest graphics performance so that Apple had no other choice to look for an inhouse solution.
Maybe Apple has simply made the strategic decision to design its own GPU since they it doesn't want to spend a ton of money on external GPUs neither for Mac nor the iPhone.
Since VR and AR become more and more important on mobile and desktop platforms, Apple might felt it necessary to control the key element GPU for mastering this trend.
I think apple will go for Mali G71-G72 as they are much more powerful GPUs.
Some of you would never be able to be business owners. If Apple's intentions are really to buy them out then I think its a well executed plan. Apple now better put their big boy pants on and get ready for a bidding war with other companies.
I really hope anyone of apple's competitors buy them. Because apple announced that on purpose so their stocks would fall down and they can buy them a lot cheaper. I really hope mediatek or hisilicon or qualcomm or even samsung or arm buy them so apple can't get what it wants.
As always. If you do business with Apple, you might just as well shut down your company. Otherwise Apple will do it for you. Too bad apples money makes people blind....
I hope huawei or mediatek will do something about this. Powervr gpu is very potent and efficient. Speaking from my experience.
Sonu4678, 22 Jun 2017Are you being sarcastic? I don't see Apple helping them instead i see Apple bullying them into... moreWant something sarcastic, just remember the first Macintosh commercial "We Will Set You Free". So arrogant basterd's from a day one.
It's really low of Apple if they buy them up but it's just business at the end of the day. This will teach supplies not to put all their eggs in one basket.
I Hope Samsung buys them, Or Qualcom so apple would have a nightmare dealing with the patents.
