AMD to drop ATi name!

    Well, I knew something bad had to come from AMD's "hostile" takeover of ATi, and here's the rotten news... Some of you may have already heard, but for those who haven't; AMD will drop the ATi name, in favour of an all-AMD lineup - All Green!


    So, how does everybody feel about this? I don't like it, the AMD name is the least attractive in the business. ATi, nVidia, Intel, hell even Cyrix sounds better... And now we have two "green" graphics card makers. Green PCB Radeon!? Yuck! :cry:

    they plan to keep it

    They're going to keep it, but.. not really.. maybe an occasional ATI RADEON card, but otherwise, it will be called an AMD <name> card
