    I thought they would leave ATI name all over their products, AMD on them would just put potential customers off.

    not if they know that theres nomore ati.

    nails u might be, how can comp cards LOOK gay? its a board with chips n shit on it. I could understand if there was like a rainbow or sum other gay shit on it.

    think about in the business sense, would u buy say a recipe or company and not put your name on it? the avg consumer might go looking 4 an ATI card and see that Amd's NEW cards look just like ATI's. Joe blow might think "wow AMD is really doing well".......... BAM instant FREE advertising, not too mention what that would do for AMD's existing line of products. joe blow thinks, "hey i just bought an AMD graphics card, let me check out AMD some more." we live in capitalist world you should think that way and understand why companies do/dont do these types of things.

    the serious gamers know AMD bought ATI..... no prob w/ those potential customers

    That's 'cause if they did no one would buy them.

    i don't concur. "w0w, amd's doing fabulous! Let's check out some other gay products." so, "they" check out other products and they cum to this and then amd goes bankrupt.
