Wow. Looks like the shareholders are either quite happy to pair up with AMD or they're just really optimistic about the companies future.
Or they know a good deal when they see one... Anyone remember how much AMD bid for those shares or was it a stock swap offer? I'm not convinced that they didn't overpay... Often when you get such overwhelming support for this type of deal then the bidders may have gotten away with a smaller offer...
Now it's time for ATI to make some killer chipsets for AMD. I'm really sorry for Nvidia but businesses are made to make money and nothing else.
Oh...why are you sorry for nVIDIA?
nVIDIA have more market share than ATI. nVIDIA will make chipsets for AMD platforms also, but the best portion of the chipsets cake is offcourse, the chipsets for Intel based systems.
