    So there are rumors of ATI to be bought by AMD or intel or other companies since they have been doing bad on the stock market (?) Lets wait and see.

    Edit: Found source.

    Speculation is heating up that ATI may be an enticing takeover target for a company such as Intel, AMD, Broadcom, or Texas Instruments, after an analyst at TD Securities issued a report stating as much: "Mr. Lee said takeover rumours surfaced last month after ATI issued its third-quarter results and provided "weak" fourth-quarter guidance." Ars Technica quotes a Candian article that goes on to state that ATI has failed to launch a new high-end part for the crucial back-to-school and potentially holiday sales seasons, hurting ATI's OEM sales business with PC manufacturers such as Dell.

    Some analysts are speculating this makes ATI a perfect takeover candidate, as they're currently down right now but could quickly come back if their next high-end part is strong (in addition to Xbox 360 sales).

    Interesting read hadn't heard about it , bet AMD or Intel would love that in their stable .


    While I have an ATI 9700 pro now I would n't have a problem switching to Nvidia on my next system . But I wonder what they think about it all ? Would love to be a fly on the wall at the next Nvidia's board meeting .
