This is big news. ATI have confirmed their deal to buy out ATI.
AMD have recently been giving Intel a run for their money with their superior AMD Athlon 64 and X2 dual core processors, which they were first to bring to the market long before Intel arrived with their Dual Core processors.
So what will this buy out mean for AMD and ATI? Will this put AMD in a much stronger position for taking on Intel now that it is coupled with one of the major graphics GPU producers? And how will this merger benefit ATI against it’s main competitor nVidia? It would seem that both companies would be able to leverage technologies from each other that would be benefical, but I wonder if this may be leading to the eventual release of a CPU with enhanced graphics capabilities, or a leap forward in graphics card performance with the addition of AMD co-processors on board, or something similar?
