Distant Rumblings: ATI + AMD Marriage

@ 2006/07/08
If you aren’t living under a rock, you have probably heard the rumors about ATI being acquired by either Intel or AMD. The latest rumors are heavily focused around AMD merging with ATI, and they don’t seem to be letting up. I won’t speculate this month on the accuracy of these rumors, I’m simply going to throw down my opinion on why I believe it would make sense for AMD to merge with ATI. I have studied this potential merger closely, and surprisingly enough I think it would be an amazing move for everyone involved, including Nvidia.

Traditionally (most of the time) the one being bought would appreciate in value right before the merger.

I own Intel not because of the rumor; because it is better than AMD in terms of value.
