AMD closes ATI acquisition

The two have officially become one. AMD has completed its $5.4 billion acquisition of graphics powerhouse ATI, and the two are already at work on a new project scheduled for 2008. "Code-named Fusion, the new project aims to combine an ATI graphics processor (GPU) on the same piece of silicon as the AMD central processor (CPU). AMD said that this could allow for more energy efficient computers and longer notebook battery life. In the meantime, both companies will continue the projects they had been working on before the acquisition, including ATI's work in stream computing (using the GPU to perform certain tasks that a CPU would normally do.)"
