VisionTek switching to ATI for now

| Posted: Dec 17, 2002 9:08 pm

In what will probably be the biggest news of the day, pending if Aliens don't invade us, VisionTek will be switching to the ATI line of graphics chips over nVidia for their line of graphics cards over the next 6 months, as we saw in a press release recently sent to us. VisionTek had always been closely associated with nVidia, but they go on to say, "when we looked at the technology available from both suppliers, both at present and what's coming over the next nine months, we felt we owed it to our loyal gamers to make the switch to ATIĀ…".

 

This is a big call; ATI must have some nice products planned over the next 9 months. I guess that means no VisionTek NV30 folks.

 

Hoffman Estates, IL - December 17, 2002 - Hartford Computer Group, a leading provider of technology products and services, today announced it has signed an agreement with ATI Technologies Inc. (TSX: ATY, NASDAQ: ATYT) to bring products based on their award winning RADEON(tm) graphics products to North American markets. ATI Technologies appointed Hartford's VisionTek division as a "Premium Retail Partner" for North America. Hartford will offer a complete line-up of video graphics products based on ATI's RADEON family of VPU's with products ranging from entry-level graphics solutions to high-end gaming products for the hard core PC enthusiast.
