I realize it happened a few weeks ago but I haven't seen anything in here about it. I think that it could be good if AMD brings ATI up to their level, but then again ATI could drag AMD to theirs. There are rumors of AMD opening ATI's drivers which would be great, especially since sun has decided to open java up. Linux would finally make some huge gains and there wouldn't be anymore shitty ATI drives on both windows and linux. On the flip side since Intel now hates ATI maybe they will start bundling nvidia+intel in notebooks and I can finally get one without ati.
