Straight from Slashdot themselves:

"A little over four years have passed since AMD purchased ATI. In May of last year, AMD took the remains of the Canadian graphics company and melded them into a monolithic products group, which combined processors, graphics, and platforms. Now, AMD is about to take the next step: kill the ATI brand altogether. The company has officially announced the move, saying it plans to label its next generation of graphics cards 'AMD Radeon' and 'AMD FirePro,' with new logos to match. The move has a lot to do with the incoming arrival of products like Ontario and Llano, which will combine AMD processing and graphics in single slabs of silicon."

Besides the news, What is with the "ask a question" thing? It took me 5 minutes to figure out how to post in the Lounge!

Well then, I'd better buy my wife an ATI Bra before AMD stops making them!

But seriously, I think this is great news. I've always respected/trusted AMD more than ATI. I had to deal with a number of faulty cards during the ATI x800/x1800 days, but my "DAAMIT" cards (x1950 and newer) have been solid.

Now all they have to do is release the Bulldozer CPU so that I can retire my good old Socket 939 machine.
