AMD & ATI - Its On, Its Off, Its On....... news post from TweakTown's online news computing and technology content pages

Although we're still yet to witness any evidence which would make this rumour something more substantial, the topic of AMD buying out ATI continues to do the rounds. Now The Inquirer are in on it, stating that they've heard through an "extraordinarily reliable source" that a merger deal is pending shareholders approval.

In an article over at TGDaily it also makes light of AMD's supposed intent to purchase ATI for $5.6 billion.

ACCORDING to an extraordinarily reliable source, AMD and ATI will on Monday pitch their shareholders with the proposition that the two companies merge.

It's an interesting idea - AMD doesn't quite have the shekels in the bank to buy ATI outright. The deal, subject to shareholder approval, may still founder.

If the deal goes through, Nvidia and its SNAP partnership with AMD will definitely be reconsidered and Nvidia will all of a sudden become a super underdog compared to the new juggernaut. It may also stop the endless bickering between ATI and Nvidia that's entertained the world+dog for some years now.
