Default AMD+ATI Nvidia+Intel

For performance benchmarks gamespot.com always seems to pair ATI cards with AMD processors and Nvidia cards with Intel processors. Is there a method to their madness, or does it not even matter at all

AMD really does own ATI.

try browsing to www.ati.com, and you'll get redirected to www.ati.amd.com, then you'll get redirected to www.amd.com/us-en/
