OMFG ConF1rmed!!!11one!!11 AMD buys ATI

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Well, just thought I'd get it out there. Teh AMD has bought the Canadian company that kept plugging away at bringing us ever richer and more exciting graphics

The only thing is that we'll have to see if any real innovation comes out of AMD-ATI beyond the CPU and GPU wars.

"to move beyond current technological configurations to transform processing technologies, with silicon-specific platforms that integrate microprocessors and graphics processors to address the growing need for general-purpose, media-centric, data-centric and graphic-centric performance"

PHEW. Will Apple have any piece of the pie with that?

Steve Jobs, WWDC 2007: "Well, I gotta admit it. We've been secretly compiling for AMD-ATI's new super C/GPU. Here's our new commercials, yes, we're back to toasting Intel bunnysuits."

    PS. Don't forget Physics for game engines, simulation, etc. Hmmm... A super central-graphics-physics-processing 8-16 core chip. 45nm or lower, 20W TDP?

    Whoa. I just creamed my pants.
