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.

I'm really thinking there should be a CPU news subsection.
Anyways:

ATI shareholders voted 99.7 per cent in favour of the deal Friday at the company's annual meeting in Toronto. The deal is expected to be completed during the week of Oct. 23.

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...

@The K1ng
I wonder what their reasons were besides the obvious that they might have been contrary bastards.

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.

Well, duh....
:) 
Did you think they wouldn't?

I don't know if the deal would be approved.
But from the share-holders' view, the deal was attractive.
Over 99% agreed the merger.

Hopefully ATi makes some great chipsets for AMD and their DX10 cards rocks the house :)

I have no idea. It was completely uncalled for.

Anyway… back on topic.
