AMD and ATI to merge in just two weeks?
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
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
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.
