AMD and ATI to merge in just two weeks?

— 3:15 PM on June 9, 2006

Yesterday, TweakTown overheard rumors that Intel considered a merger between AMD and ATI "very likely" and was discussing the possibility internally. Now, HardOCP's Kyle Bennett says Intel has started talking with its customers about it:

Over dinner tonight in downtown Taipei it was explained to me that Intel was making the rounds with their customers explaining exactly how the AMD/ATI merger/acquisition was going to impact their business. Closure of the deal is expected to pass in 2 weeks.
AMD and ATI employees seem to be keeping quiet about this possibility. The Inquirer has quizzed several anonymous sources at both companies, and they are all said to have denied a merger is imminent. According to The Inq, Intel would be a likelier candidate for a merger with ATI, although there are reportedly no talks going on there, either.
