Asus to produce ATI-powered graphics cards

— 3:33 AM on August 29, 2003

According to this story over at DigiTimes, Asus will be producing video cards based on ATI's graphics chips. The report is unconfirmed, of course, but it wouldn't surprise me to see Asus offer up a few Radeons. In fact, we may see ATI-powered Asus graphics cards as early as Computex.

Apparently, Asus' graphics card contract with NVIDIA expires in September, which would leave the door open for even an exclusive partnership with ATI. If it wants to, Asus should have enough clout to negotiate graphics card contracts with both ATI and NVIDIA, but it probably doesn't make sense for Asus to produce a full line of Radeon and GeForce FX cards.
