Confirming rumors that circulated over the past few weeks on the Internet, AMD and ATI today unveiled their plans for creating a "processing powerhouse." While details about the deal, which has been discussed with questionable effects in some places, are scarce at this time, AMD highlighted that ATI will be essential to drive the company into new growth areas.

I don't really understand what AMD is trying to accomplish by acquiring ATi... what will they do now?

What would be cool, is building graphic chipsets directly into the cpus. Not plausable, but just thinking out loud.

I think what they are doing is experimenting with graphics combined with cpus. Testing etc, to make the ultimate combination.

Once agian, just thinking out loud.

Haha, I dunno either, because aquireing themselves is pretty strange.

Just kidding, you messed up on the wording, but yeah.
