AMD purchased ATI graphics and last week they split the company and have money coming from Abu Dabi (Middle East) and will now come out with the .22 nano sooner rather than later.
I've worked in tech and this is good stuff. AMD had a chip that had several cores and no heat sink, cool to the touch. Now they can go and focus on design and get back into the business. Remember, Apple was one of the first AMD Hypertransport Consortium members, so they can always use AMD if need be and it works. Think about it. Use Intel for all the X86 kinks and bugs then when AMD has a killer chip or a chip that runs for 24 hours, then they can offer both.
Everyone said Dell would never use AMD and behold, they now do. AMD is a good alternative but they have not been able to match the duo core but there is supposed to be something under the table.
And for what it's worth, know someone that saw the NEW FINAL CUT PRO last AUG (2007) and stated, very deep but as easy as iMovie.
I think and hope Apple releases GREAT GPU for all machines then starts stronger and more cores on MBPros, (8) and 16/32 on Macpro and start to focus on Pro market again.
