What to make of this one for future implications? According to this article, motherboard makers are becoming increasingly concerned that the AMD-ATI merger will cause a shortage of ATI chipsets supporting Intel’s platform. Both ECS and Gigabyte show concern. ATI’s RD600 is already rumoured to be something quite special, but where does that leave this chipset? Supply could be a problem. 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.
