But there is a logical reason behind it. Intel allegedly want to buy Broadcom because the company will become a big competitor, if so join Qualcomm.
Broadcom and Qualcomm each have a market capitalization value of about US $ 100 billion, so the combination of both will be the technology with the greatest value of the universe if realized.
The combination of Broadcom and Qualcomm will be a strong rival for Intel, which is equally engaged in the chip industry, with a market capitalization value of around US $ 240 billion.
An Intel spokesman declined to comment on his acquisition of Broadcom, but confirmed that Intel is often buying other companies.
"We have made a number of important acquisitions in the last 30 months including the acquisition of Mobileye and Altera," said the spokesman.
