Whats ARM?
They make CPUs.  Particularly for mobile, and smaller devices.
This is a big deal.

holy crud.
I mean Nvidia was already in a really good position thanks to their new GPUs, but I guess they're set to become a mega mega company.

nvidia is pretty dominate in PCs while arm dominates everything else.  iphone. android.  tablets.  "internet of things" devices like in smart fridges, smart cars, smart tvs, ect.  

basically if you want any computational device you now have to go to nvidia.  this is a massive consolidation of corporate power.
