    AMD announced that just because they have successfully fused with ATI does not mean they will let the brand just disappear. AMD told The Register that the "ATI name will continue to be used in association with what are now AMD's discrete graphics products and its chipsets." ATI will also still make Intel chipsets.

    yeah, ATi is red, end of story, to change it is asking for trouble from the gods ;)

    Glad to see the Ati name isn't going to go (would be a bad business move anyways, would be expensive to rebrand everything plus the ATi name is well established and loved by the community)

    The thing is that everything still has ATi name on it. It would cost millions to do away with it. Over time, ATi name might fade away, but for now its the easy way to join the 2 companies.

    LOL Its TeamAti for now, and we have our old site still TeamAMD.com. If you have been lurking on our forums, you should know that everyone still wants to be red.

    I think it is pretty early for anyone to be suggesting success at this point. If they need to start this kind of PR so early on, then they know they are in for a rough ride.

    Looking at www.ati.com ---> AMD site; the quality and image has gone down. Brand destruction at work. Short the stock!

    So, does this mean that Ruby is going to be in GREEN tights now! BTW, while we are at that, she ought to change her name too. RUBY=RED. Emerald, maybe?

    I like the page :laugh:


    As long as ATi is making Intel compatable products, I don't think they'll ever change the name. Intel wont have AMD stuff working in their systems lol!
