    In a shocking turn of events AMD took over ATi for a cool $5.4 Billion..... It also slashed its processor prices by 50% to maintain a market share.

    Now the questions arises whether nvidia can maintain its independence?

    By 2008 AMD plans to launch a processor with CPU-GPU core.....

    satch_attack New Member wont affect anybody will affect all the intel users cuz ati wont be makin chipsets for intel processors ......
    on 2nd thought ....its actually a big blow for intel users..ati will completely stop supportin intel and all the optimizations made in the gfx drivers for intel processors will be removed to switch there attention to AMD optimizations and forcin people to buy an AMd procy and motherboard to enjoy those stellar visuals

    by the looks of may take over nvidia too....but nothin is official....but gotta say ..this was long overdue..AMD must have bought ATI yrs ago to compete against intel when ATI released dere radeon 9700 card to try to beat intels huge dominance in the computer market..but then..better late than neva ..besides amd is strong enough to buy over any company !

    ^^ Older AMD procs had the heat problem... but the ones like the athlon 64 were more efficient than equivalent intel procs and had less heat dissipation!!!
