Doug Friedman, an analyst with American Technology Research, said that graphics chip maker Nvidia Corp. could well acquire x86 microprocessor maker Advanced Micro Devices in order to re-architect it. The acquisition is considered to be useful due to the fact that roadmaps of AMD and Intel Corp. threat Nvidia. The only problem for the graphics giant is that AMDs x86 license is a non-transferable one.

We believe AMD [could] face mounting pressure from shareholders, to restructure the company with a focus on a change in leadership, said the analyst.
