company that is about to go bankrupt
You realize that it is still ATI making the Radeon cards, now they are just a subsidiary of AMD. If AMD goes bankrupt (which I doubt), ATI will probably be sold off to another company (Intel, Samsung maybe) or go back to being its own organization.
Also remember that at one point Apple was on the brink of bankruptcy and now they are the
largest and most successful company in the world.
