Motherboard makers prepare shift of ATI chipsets to AMD-based solutions

The impact of a combined AMD (Advanced Micro Devices)-ATI Technologies has begun to be felt in Taiwan, with motherboard makers likely to reduce or even suspend their efforts to develop Intel-based motherboards built utilizing chipsets from ATI, while switching more resources to manufacturing models with ATI's AMD-based chipsets, according to sources at Taiwan motherboard makers.

I wonder if Intel is concerned about this? Probably not--but it sounds great for AMDer's!

I just can't see this becomming an exclusivity thing or even 70/30 lopsided thingy. If MB companies were to do this and AMD were to place more focus on ATI solutions and neglect Nvidia then I would definitely jump ship for Intel. There are just as many AMDers that choose to use Nvidia exclusively as there are AMDers that choose to use ATI. Why alienate a good chunk of your customer base?

I'm not ATi or nVidia exclusive, but because of how s****y the drivers for ATi is, I've been more prone to nVidia cards. Not to mention the greater Linux support from nVidia
