The FTC announced the suit on Thursday, citing concerns about innovation and competition as a primary reason. The Commission is worried Nvidia's control could distort Arm's incentives to its licensees and stifle innovation, specifically in areas like driver assistance systems, data center technology, and cloud computing processors. Arm licenses its chip designs to tech companies that use them for the technology in devices like smartphones, tablets, and automotive systems. They include companies like Samsung and Apple.

LTT had this on their live stream today.  So, this is growing to be bigger news than I thought yesterday.  Hmmm.

Personally, I say good.  Nvidia needed to be knocked down a peg or two.  All of these big companies that are operating towards monopolies need to be knocked back.  We need more innovation, more consumer choice.  Honestly, if Cyrix was still around today and 3DFX and ATI, could you imagine the cool rigs that might've been?  Tons of old, and honestly great companies died in the last 15-30 years its absolutely horrible.

I hold the same views against gaming companies too.  Looking at you EA. *shakes fist

100% - take most if not all industries that have over time built up to be monopolies or duopolies, when has that ever worked out for the customer/consumer in terms of cost, innovation, value, etc.
