I've heard about that some time ago but, didn't give it much thought.
I've just dissmissed it as a rumor. Not that it's official, it makes me think.
I like Amd for a while now, I've been using their chips since Pentium 3 era.
First Amd chip i used was a Athlon XP 2600+ and i've never had any problems with it.
I've used it with nVidia's nForce chipset but, when i come to video. I prefered Ati.
I've moved to Nvidia for video because of better Linux driver support.
So, all things considered. I'll continue to use Amd products. As for Ati, I really curious if
thay driver support will improve as a result of that mirger. Wnat has Amd got in store for Ati...
