ATI pulls Intel's bus license. No more crossfire for Intel, and you are lucky if there will be any Nvedia's SLI. Intel and Nvedia have bad blood between them. Not Nvedia's fault's though. Intel's bussiness practice is catching up w/ them little by little.

:roll: Clearly the new AMD-ATI would stop making MoBos and crossfire support for intel chips, because ignoring 80% of the market is what makes a good business. Anyway, you fail to realize that it isn't even a done deal yet, it still has to be approved by the share holders.

I loved this bit of the article, "Long term, buying ATI is the only thing AMD can do to survive. It will bring some short term pain, and Wall Street will simply not have a clue once again, but there is no doubt that it is a necessary thing."

Like the Charlie has a clue himself. This sort of speculation would make the most buoyant Wall Street lackey proud.

Back to reality, what do you think an accurate percentage of PC users, are SLi or Crossfire gamers? And you do realise, that you can get SLi for Intel chipsets, right?

Game is over Intel? *nearly has a heart attack crying of laughter*. Yeah, I'm sure they are really sweating after releasing Conro, the best set of chips on the market by a long shot. Oh yeah, Conro doesn't have IMC, guess you don't have to love it after all.

Roll on the next ridiculous article from The Inquirer
July 24, 2006 10:47:56 AM

do you really think that will happen ?? who will lose if they don't make intel compatible chipsets, by the way where have you been last in the last 2 months ?? Intel has the best platform for at least 8 months to a year , so if you want the best procesor you have to go intel ,but then you cant go crossfire, hummm i think NVIDIA will be getting some market share with that, maybe is ATI lost not INTEL .
July 24, 2006 10:55:24 AM

yeah...cuz the 99.99999% of users who don't care about crossfire won't buy intel now :roll:
What a huge market loss

Who should take you seriously? You can't even spell "Nvidia" correctly.
By the way, there is no "bad blood" you speak of between Intel and Nvidia. This deal only forces Nvidia to swift their current strategy.

A rough translation...


Quote:
July 4 at noon, a person close to the negotiations which side to the author revealed that AMD has reached a purchase agreement with ATI, the news will soon be officially announced.

The source also disclosed that the company is currently ATI acquisition side "a big shake-up" but he refused to disclose more, such as purchasing, pricing details.

In May this year the industry was the acquisition of ATI Intel news, the news was subsequently denied by both sides. In early June, the acquisition ATI again Puchu case, but the acquisition side has become a veteran opponent Intel AMD, but then AMD and ATI is equally denied the news.

There are industry analysis, storage acquisitions ATI graphics chip market will be re-demarcation of the pattern. Intel's market share is highest in the field, the old rival Nvidia and ATI is the main storage partners. Nvidia Corporation founder and CEO Huangrenxun Earlier in accepting media interviews said that if AMD acquires ATI, NVIDIA will adjust their current strategy will no longer focus on AMD market, but part of the Intel market pros



What do you have to say about that huh? Right from the mouth of Nvidia's CEO. Now why don't you go back to sucking Hector Ruiz's nuts.
July 24, 2006 11:01:52 AM

NOW YOU KNOW.... the Intelliots are going to jump all over u for this thread....

that said .. i expect INTELLIOTS to calim CROSSFIRE support is nothing anyway... like they were saying before AMD bought Ati
July 24, 2006 11:03:06 AM

this is spectacular on AMDS behalf, this is great for the market and innovation! but i wonder what will this mean for the upcoming 45µm factories that amd was going to build?
this will mean greater integration for dual CGs on amd+ati MB's

this might mean bigger gpus on ati cards :D  roooh can't wait to see what they have instore for us :) 

i just hope nvidia will still build and support AMD cpus and ATI intel ones.
If they dont this would mean disaster for my little hybrids.

MORE MORE!!

Why did you have to be so mean and post this? 9-inch is probably frothing at the mouth, wishing he could have. You guys really should synchronize your posting schedule more accurately. L<<<for your forehead.
July 24, 2006 11:08:16 AM

Good find. After the short break between me posting, going away, coming back and refreshing, I did wonder if that was going to happen. Intel and Nvidia teaming up against AMD and ATI.

Perhaps AMD should have kept their hands out of their pockets, do they really want to stir things up so bad and end up fighting against two big players? If anything this whole thing makes me concerned for AMD in the future, and more importantly ATI. And I really love ATI chips as well, I don't want to see them swallowed up and changed, or risk having to buy an inferior CPU to get the better GPU. Bleugh. Not so good news for the consumer.
July 24, 2006 11:11:16 AM

Oh you mean to say the ATI and Nvidia want to stop selling their products to it's costumer? Do you realize that of all graphics cards most of the costumer run and Intel platform? Because I don't think stopping the Intel SLI and Crossfire would help either Nvidia or ATI. As far as I know when it comes to business first of all money is the main goal, doesn't matter if ATI and Nvidia doesn't have any good relationship with Intel.
July 24, 2006 11:12:35 AM

how is this NOT SO GOOD NEWS FOR THE CONSUMER

how so?

You have no IDEA what AMDti PLAN to do

i said it first

AMDTi <---- copyright
July 24, 2006 11:17:48 AM

The reason it might not be good news for the consumer, is we might no longer have the option of going for either Intel or AMD then choosing either ATI or Nvidia. And if the assumptions are true (not so sure) and ATI under AMD do not support Intel chips at all, that will be part of it, coupled with Nvidia doing the same with Intel as clairvoyant129's link indicated.

That's the bad thing.

I don’t want to know AMDTi plan to do (nice one lol), I'm just going to sit here smugly waiting for my new Conro machine and relish having such fast, cool, sweet n' cuddly computer.

Doubt this is "game over" for Intel or nVidia, but this is a good move by AMD...hopefully this will (finally) address compatibility issues with mobo chipsets, i.e.; compatibility issues with 760MPX and 8151 AGP tunnel...if Intel is going to foray into IGP, then a merger between AMD/ATI should counteract that...I look forward to seeing what these two companies produce...

HI all: Did any of you folks really read the 33219 inqiurer article ??
Or are you just spouting to get up your post count??
The reason I am asking is because,you see, that this is just the tip of the iceberg ,and that if this merger did not happen [i am no ATI fan]..
We would all be likely to be at the mercy of INTEL in a few years again when AMD dies.
This is about the future ,the computing future yours and mine,I'm not saying that these co's are thinking specifically about you and me, and multi- cores,many of them ,very many of them and little ones too,did you not see the reference to SUN's niagra CPU and niagra II,and the reference to INTEL having enough multi-core projects going to fill a fone book..
Well then,you must know,being techno-geekz,that AMD cannot compete with INTEL when it comes to R&D,hells bells INTEL spendz more on R&D than AMD is worth.
I could go on ,but what the hell,there are folks here who are way more qualified than I am...
The bottom line is that "WE ALL WIN"..but,and this is a big BUT,only if there is lively competition.
And another thing,no matter what you read,there will still be Nvidia chipsets out there,Amd does not stab it's partners in the back like some other co's who shall remain unnamed..

And the FTC and canadian gov't hae to still approve this. They probably will but it's no over yet.

The first thing you said would happen is that some half crazed nutter typing with one hand on the keyboard (and one hand somewhere else entirely) links a load of daft speculation from the Inquirer and crows about the (highly unlikely) downfall of a CPU manufacturer as if a war has just been won?

No points I am afraid; we could probably all have predicted that.

I imagine this sort of link will lead to further integrated solutions. Given the interesting article here recently on power consumption in GPUs and the recent benchmarking and performance limitation issues presented by GPU limitations, its not that bad an idea for CPU and GPU makers to team up and work towards better solutions than we have currently.

If people feel they cannot buy a product because of association with a particular manufacturer they are actually in a (vocal and slightly bizarre) minority and more fool them.

O RLY?

No CF for Intel? Too bad... ATis cards were proven to be superior but in Multi-GPU mode they just dont seem to be able to get it right, dunno why.

For prestige only 1 thing counts: Lose 2 GPUs but get 4 in return.

I'll have to say you are very correct about the Canadian Government part. I know about it all to well. When it comes to an American company Merging/buyout type of deal there is a lot of red tape. And I mean a lot of red tape to get passed. And a lot of rules they have to follow or no deal. Since it's suck a large company the CG may not allow it to happen at all. They have done it many times in the past where they wouldn't allow to two large company's come together because they would be to large. LOL Walmart had the hardest time even crossing the boarder. And Best buy had to buy out futureshop to cross the boarder. CG is very big on keeping large American company's out unless they keep the business in Canada and hire Canadians on all levels. They are just at the first part of them joining right now. There is tons of red tape to get through right now. This can take well over 2 months before any official papers are signed. Unless they really push this hard and have been doing all the red tape already in the background.

So in other words AMD has nothing to say about what ATI can do until it's aproved fully by Shareholders and CG as well. Which just reading the ATI site is 4Q this year earliest. Which still leaves room for ATI to bring out any chipsets they have been working on for Intel. Which I'm sure they have been. Why waste all the money that went into R&D just because AMD is around. This isn't easy thing to do for AMD. The CG is very, very picky when it comes to this. They have to prove to them without a doubt that they will not f-up and make this Canadian company lose profit.

July 24, 2006 1:29:29 PM

965 also isnt a chipset created for prestige, thats what the high-end chipset 975X is for =)
July 24, 2006 1:36:06 PM

I really fail to see the upside to this deal for ATI. They were already providing kick ass GPU's. Now to merge with a company that produces only CPUs and who's resources are few and far between... What is the point?

AMD same thing. Do they really think that this will hurt Intel? All it will do is give Intel reason to pursue Crossfire and SLI chipsets on its own. What is the gain for AMD but another market with very aggressive competition??? Not to mention AMD's need for good nForce chipsets. Without nVidia, where would the Athlon be?? Is the milk sour there between those two or what??

Next thing you know we'll have an integrated GPU on the CPU. Whoo hoo!

Dude, ATI didn't pull anything. It was Intel that pulled the licence, since it's their bus. Many enthusiasts were excited about the forthcoming ATI chipsets for the Core architecture but may now be having second thoughts. I wouldn't buy it, or a video card for that matter. I wouldn't trust AMD to provide a reliable platform for their biggest competitor. I wouldn't trust it to deliver optimized drivers for their GPUs either. I have been an ATI customer since the 8500 but today that relationship ended.

On the other hand, I hope that this merger works. Charlie D is right; this is a Hail Mary pass for AMD. AMD needs this merger just to stay alive. I definitely don't want Intel to become the sole provider of x86 CPUs. In the future, whenever I decide to upgrade my Core system (2-3 years), I will switch to AMD if they offer better overall performance than Intel. As to nVidia...I won't be supporting nForce 5 as long as it's a power hog but I will buy their GPUs.
July 24, 2006 1:49:34 PM

The purschase weakens AMD's lawsuit and claim against Intel for anti-trust violations. Perhaps the lawsuit was a ruse by AMD to get the purchase to go through without objection. Be careful of what you ask for (or buy).

Intel pulls ATI bus licence

Oh shock, oh horror

By Charlie Demerjian: Monday 24 July 2006, 10:51
IN A SHOCK TO no one, a few days ago, ATI had its chipset bus licence pulled, or at least not renewed by Intel. I guess that means that AMD won't be making many chipsets for Intel in a year or so. µ


ROFL thats the article..thats it...OoooOoOooO yea sounds real creditable

if anything guys its going to be like the Dell Alienware, kinda 2 companies just not in a sence

July 24, 2006 3:39:42 PM

I'm just an average gamer (maybe below average). I only play a couple of different titles each year. For me, I don't really care about Crossfire or SLI. It isn't really worth it unless you go with the more expensive cards because nothing can beat a X1900XTX or 7900GTX (before the 7950GX came out) except by sticking in two cards. The 7950GX is simply two GPUs on one card. That would be mighty expensive, so only the true hardcore gamers with money to burn will go for a dual card setup.

Most of the gaming market is still in the single GPU solution sector. While this merger is certainly not good for Intel in the enthusiast market, it's not a deathstroke. ATI cards will still be capable of running on motherboards for Intel CPUs.

While it seems gaming is a big concern with many people, there are other things a PC is used for like video compression, video editing, and professional 3D rendering.

Its an interesting pretence at neutrality from someone trying to convince everyone AMD processors were 'flying off the shelves' just because no one could actually buy one.

Your posts are incredibly partisan; it is ridiculous of you to be sarcastically amused by the behaviour of others acting in the same fashion as you do yourself. You are one of quite a number of people posting on these forums who are perfectly content to lie and manipulate the facts about technology to suit your agenda; this place is much worse for it.

All and all only 5% of market will buy conroe, woodcrest, kettlefield, morons, and youknow.
There will not be any enthusiast market for Intel and Intel will just be happy selling IGP' platform to 3rd graders.

Wow, that's weird, because that means that about 75% of the world cpu market and billions of dollars of revenue each quarter must come from Intel employees and Intel fanboys. Weird. I wonder what AMD must be doing with all this cash they must be making since Intel has SO FEW customers? Not buying ATI with it, since they issued about $2 billion in debt for this take over.

On a side note, obviously Nvidia will pair up eith Intel whether they like it or not. They have no other choice, but to sell for their competitor.

But you will make fun of and discredite anyone you speaks against Intel because you are an Intel fanboy.
Do you think THG will write up an article w/ the titel " Game is over for Intel"?
I doubt it. Just as I doubt you will ever say anything positive about AMD.
why? well, because your are an Intel fan.......
It's going to unbearable for you Intel loyalists (ther I am being nice to you fanboys) to admit, that Intel "is cut between a rock and hard on's"

But you will make fun of and discredite anyone you speaks against Intel because you are an Intel fanboy.
Do you think THG will write up an article w/ the titel " Game is over for Intel"?
I doubt it. Just as I doubt you will ever say anything positive about AMD.
why? well, because your are an Intel fan.......
It's going to unbearable for you Intel loyalists (ther I am being nice to you fanboys) to admit, that Intel "is cut between a rock and hard on's"


All this from an obvious AMD fanboy. Wow.

Let's see. Intel just raked in almost $2 BILLION in net income, while on the eve of releasing a new chip that owns everything out currently. Meanwhile AMD just managed to net less than $200 MILLION in net income and just issued almost $2 BILLION in debt. You have a strange idea of what it means to be in financial trouble.

You think Intel is going to disappear? A company worth more than $100,000,000,000 is not going anywhere anytime soon.

If Ati products didn't work with intel's stuff, you get some pretty pissed off customers because you are indirectly forcing them to buy Nvidia. Doing this means Ati/Amd loses out on profits. I don't think anyone cares for sli or crossfire, it's too high in the performance sector to make any real impact.

Good point. And even in the enthusiast sector, I'd rather save the £600 or so by going from FX62 to E6600 than gain HDR + FSAA by going with XFire.

ATI pulls Intel's bus license.

Dude, ATI didn't pull anything. It was Intel that pulled the licence, since it's their bus. Many enthusiasts were excited about the forthcoming ATI chipsets for the Core architecture but may now be having second thoughts. I wouldn't buy it, or a video card for that matter. I wouldn't trust AMD to provide a reliable platform for their biggest competitor. I wouldn't trust it to deliver optimized drivers for their GPUs either. I have been an ATI customer since the 8500 but today that relationship ended. quote]

Yeah I have also always been an ATi "fan boi", but today Iam nVidia "fan boi". No doubt. But I think that intel and nVidia will "Merge"!

SAN FRANCISCO, July 24 (Reuters) - Graphics chip maker Nvidia Corp. (NVDA.O: Quote, Profile, Research) does not see the need to pursue a merger deal such as the kind its rival ATI Technologies Inc. has struck with computer processor company Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD.N: Quote, Profile, Research), an executive said on Monday.

"We don't feel at this point it makes sense to tie ourselves up with an acquisition," Michael Hara, Nvidia's vice president of investor relations, told Reuters when asked if the company was interested in being acquired by AMD or its chief competitor Intel Corp. (INTC.O: Quote, Profile, Research).

AMD said on Monday it would buy ATI (ATYT.O: Quote, Profile, Research)(ATY.TO: Quote, Profile, Research) for $5.4 billion.



I think Intel is happy about the merger amd has bet the company on this merger
