Motherboard makers prepare shift of ATI chipsets to AMD-based solutions

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 0 comment

The impact of a combined AMD-ATI Technologies has begun to be felt in Taiwan, with motherboard makers likely to reduce or even suspend their efforts to develop Intel-based motherboards built utilizing chipsets from ATI, while switching more resources to manufacturing models with ATI's AMD-based chipsets, according to sources at Taiwan motherboard makers.

Local motherboard makers are increasingly concerned that the AMD-ATI merger would cause a discontinuation or shortage in supply of ATI chipsets supporting Intel's platform, with the makers citing as a precedent the shortage of ATI's southbridge chips early this year when Nvidia completed its takeover of Taiwan-based ULi Electronics, which previously bundled its southbridge chips with ATI's northbridge parts.
