Chip maker, Advanced Micro Devices, is in talks to buy a rival chip maker – the American company Xilinx, reported The Wall Street Journal. The deal might be exceeding to $ 30 billion and could be announced for the next week.

The merger will become one of the largest transactions in the industry this year, along with the planned acquisition of the British processor developer Arm by the NVIDIA company for $ 40 billion. AMD may pay for the purchase with its own shares, which have risen significantly in the recent times, the WSJ reported.

On Thursday, October 8, the Xilinx`s shares rose on 0.15% to $ 105.99. On Friday, October 9, quotations soared at pre-auction by 16.61% to $ 123.59.

Capitalization of the Xilinx’s market is now about a quarter of AMD’s value, which exceeds to $ 100 billion.

Xilinx manufactures programmable chips that are used in the data centers and the 5G base stations. The merger with the Xilinx will give AMD more opportunities to compete with Intel in the lucrative market for the computer components for data centers.

Interest in Xilinx reflects the growing needs of the cloud service providers such as online retailer Amazon or IT giant Google, writes Bloomberg. These companies are investing heavily in the new data centers to meet the growing demand for the computing power.
