i liked the idea of ATI being independent more. hopefully this still works out fine with the R600's coming

the chipset does not mean there is a link, VIA chipsets are used on some AMD boards yet VIA make their own CPU's and i have heard of no business relationship with VIA. ATI just went where the money was, which meant throwing an offering into the AMD chipset market.

i think this is probably a very good market move by the two companies, although i hope to god that they do not make any stupid decisions along the lines of proprietary hardware or it could be quite damaging to their sales

This may put a dent into dell if you ask me... I have noticed a LOT of dell computers use ATI cards and with ATI and AMD being merged like that... It may hurt Dell...

Hey cool, never thought of that charles_scott.

I wonder if Dell will start putting AMDs in their desktops.

eMachines mostly uses AMD and nVidia, so I wonder how that will work out too.

Dell has a contract with AMD to put chips into their machines... I know some Gov contracts are already life-cycling some of the older machines for the newer ones with AMD 3200 64's in them... So I would think the merger would benifit both AMD and Dell, now that Dell can buy from pretty much one buyer and get all the parts they need.... CPU, mobo, and GPU all in one shot

Found this on the FAQ on amd.com

Q: What will the combined company operate as?
A: The combined company will operate as AMD.

does this mean no more ATI on graphics cards?

i would say NO!!!

i think ATI will basically be assimilated much like Maxtor with Seagate. they will maintain ATI mostly intact, fabrication plants will stay open etc. basically ATI will just become a branch of AMD.
