5. AMD-Xilinx Deal Gets Approval By U.K., E.U.

AMD’s plan to acquire FPGA maker Xilinx for $35 billion cleared two major hurdles at the end of June with approvals from the United Kingdom’s and European Union’s regulatory bodies.

The chipmaker said that the deal, which was announced last October, received approvals from the U.K.’s Competition and Markets Authority on June 29 and the European Commission on June 30. This means the deal only needs approval from Chinese regulators now as it had already received clearance from the U.S. and other countries, including South Korea and Australia.

AMD CEO Lisa Su has previously said that the Xilinx acquisition will further solidify the chipmaker as the leader of high-performance-computing products.

“AMD will offer the strongest portfolio of high performance and adaptive computing products in the industry, spanning leadership CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, and Adaptive SOCs,” she said last October. “This will enable us to take a leadership position accelerating a diverse set of emerging workloads, from AI to smart networking and software-defined infrastructure.”
