Atleast I think. If it is correct, Intel is planning a Hostile take over bit to snatch ATI away from AMD. Which would somewhat make sence. Intel were partnered with ATI; ATI was providing the X200 chipset for Intel, since they currently have no low end chipset. Also, this would break the back of AMD, since nVidia does not seem offended at their bestfriend buying up their rival. more here http://theinquirer.net/default.aspx?article=33265 again this is just a ROMOUR!
Hahaha, If it means the end of AMD and ATI, I'm all for it. Really strange even for a rumor, to destroy my two hated companies. It'll probably never happen though.
well dont know about intel but i knowAMD wants them.
The EnquiererFIDELITY.COM runs a rum rumour to the effect that Intel (tick: INTC) could bid $23...
I like their asking price, very cut-throat, ya know?
heh, at that rice i would buy ATI, but i believe they mean $23/share
Intel and ATI? Doesn't do anything for me.
I wouldn't be surprised if this were true. ATI were quite a big supplier for Intel in the IGP market with their Radeon XPress chipset...
well AMD offerd aobut 6billion! http://gear.ign.com/articles/720/720756p1.html
US$5.4B total value: $4.2B in cash and 57M shares of AMD common stock, currently valued at approximately $18 per share.
Given their track record over the past five or six years, and I don't think Intel is going to seriously attempt a takeover of ATI, hostile or otherwise.
I dont trust anything from that source. Anyway it isnt good business to switch partners every few weeks.
