Would you mind quoting the part where it says this? For <i>some</i> reason I just cannot seem to find it.

Yes, ATI has some licenses to create Pentium 4 chipsets and some integrated graphics chipsets. You can look forward to integrated Radeon graphics in the future.

“ATI congratulates AMD on the announcement of the Athlon XP Processor,” said Rick Bergman, Senior Vice President of Marketing & General Manager, Desktop Business Unit, ATI Technologies Inc. “As before, this latest processor from AMD is fully supported by all current ATI hardware and software driver technologies, including the award-winning RADEON 8500, which will result in a faster, more significantly-enhanced 3D visual experience for both AMD and ATI customers.”

“The AMD Athlon XP processor 1800+ with Quantispeed architecture offers outstanding performance and is the perfect marriage with ATI’s newest line of RADEON 8500 graphics cards,” said Richard Heye, Vice President, Platform Engineering & Infrastructure, Computation Products Group for AMD. “We’re confident that consumers can benefit from the combination and can finally take advantage of advanced architectures that offer incredible performance for today’s PC desktop systems.”

please take note the the first sentence of the second paragraph

I still do not see where they say it is the best processor for their video card. However, they do state it is supported. The CPU you use has little to do with the performance of your video card. In fact, the slower your CPU the more important your video card is when playing games.

You should note that the second paragraph you quoted was in fact spoken by someone at AMD, not ATI. Do not confuse your sources.

Just because he dislikes Via, it's a good point? Hmm... :)

Since when has a GF3 scored that low? That's a bigger difference than I've ever seen before.
Almost as good as Intels tests comparing a P4 2.0 and a P3 500.

Ok, I see what you mean. Wasn't a big deal anyway.

I think you're the one with the reading problem, sk8er. It's a quote by someone FROM AMD.
But, the fact that Ati put it on their website means something, I suppose.

Thats what you call the biz man. When the P5's and next core upgrade to the Athlon come out. They just help sell the product for the companies its common practice.
