Creative Sold ZiiLabs To Intel for US$50 million



Creative has strike a deal with Intel. They were once competitors when Creative announced that they going to make Zii chips for mobile devices. But now, its a change of tide and they are business partners now.

I am not sure if this is a business deal which Creative gained a lot. It look like a package deal with Intel that they are to take in ZiiLabs and at the same time, purchase the license to use the high-performance GPU technology in ZiiLabs.

The Zii ZMS technology will be now more available to the world when Intel integrate it with there very own chips. This may be a win win situation for both parties. Intel will gain a formidable technology to compete against more viable competitors such as AMD, etc. Creative will have some extra cash to buy some time and hopefully put it to better use and turn the company around.

We want to hear from you, please feel free to let us know in the comments section below.

Another announcement later.

Maybe you should think why the number one chip maker will be interested in ziilabs limited. Btw, Ziilabs is still fully own subsidiary of creative. I think intel is trying to do something related to arm and need a fast and cheap stepping stone. Maybe intel wanted to acquire creative but sim refuses to sell.

Ziilabs is still fully own subsidiary of creative ? i thought its sold to intel?

ZiiLABS Inc. Ltd (still wholly-owned by Creative) will continue to retain all ownership of its
StemCell media processor technologies and patents, and continue to supply and support its ZMS
series of chips to its customers. It will also continue to develop devices incorporating the
ZiiLABS ZMS-20 and the ZMS-40 media processors.

If you sell a few patents for 20 or 50 mil, you are a fail. They retain everything. Most people didn't see this. That's why they are eager to sell out or unwilling to buy. Another unrelated announcement coming.

Hanzpad available at sitex, called hansvision tablet. www.hansvision.com official launch on 24 nov with some education tie up. Go try it at sitex, wifi only, come with Chinese education and free dictionary and free leather case, all at S$519. It is well built, very responsive and screen is nice, IPS. You can remove the Chinese stuff and download google play if you want, basically you can mod it. For jimmy to continue...

Dammit Creative, $50 million is a gift for Intel!

Next year this time, creative may cease to exist. They may sell off everything since they cannot make any progress without big backing. But it is good news for shareholders because they are likely to get much more than 50 mil. Maybe a few hundred or even 1 Bil.

Intel is a better company than Creative for ZiiLabs formerly 3Dlabs. Intel could turn coal into gold. We should expect high-end graphics from Intel soon. If Intel could incorporate X-Fi into its processors too, it would be a perfect match. A tightly integrated solution will be a better solution. Apple has shown the way.

x-fi is already in zms-08. whether they can integrate sound blaster studio (found in sound blaster Z cards and sound blaster axx) will be a challenge. 50 mil enough to cover creative operation loss for at least 1.5 years. this means creative can still survive. it has 0 debt compared to olam muahahaha

Jimmy Loh said...

intel already bought the ziilabs gpu license so if they manage to make a big sale out of it, creative will not get a cut off it. all the profit is going to intel.

muddy water should take a look at creative. it is the opposite of olam. creative is trying to monetize whatever it has.

building information modelling(BIM) is a the begining of it's life cycle. one of the winner of BIM now is autodesk - revit. 3D software needs strong graphics display but still need work to run on androids.

As part of the ongoing cooperation between the two companies, Intel recently partnered with Creative to design and develop an advanced motion sensing camera that can pick up human motion for interaction with high-powered computer games, as demonstrated at the Intel Developers Forum in September 2012. The companies also anticipate continuing their discussion on future technology for media-rich tablet products.

take a look at the video. and you will know why creative is still in webcam business though it doesn't sell. sim must be thinking of integrating SBX studio (found in sound blaster axx) with this advanced camera. you cannot integrate it into laptops and since Logitech and Microsoft is not in, they can have a quantum lead. imagine everyone rush to buy this for their pc and laptop when the games and software support this. good thing to give up UK ziilabs ltd. multiple fronts for growth forward.

go and buy creative shares now and hold. most people thought this company is dead and hopeless. buy buy buy.

Jimmy Loh said...

great info!

boring... will developers interested on this? now the rush is laptop replacement and surprisingly intel is not benefiting from it.
Apple iOS and Samsung Andriod will continue to dominate this due to its superior hardware and underlying OS and software.

android is by google. intel takes over ziilabs because it needs to get entry to android and mobile devices.

Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic

but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
I'm getting fed up of

Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I

would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
