AMD to buy ATI Technologies

  • New York Times (free registration required); By Andrew Ross Sorkin (Posted by dinotrac on Jul 24, 2006 4:45 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story; Groups: Intel
AMD has agreed to buy ATI Technologies for a $5.4 billion in cash and stock.

The purchase, which gets AMD into the market for high-end graphics chipsets, as well as chipsets for the mobile phone market, is expected to make AMD more competitive with Intel.

The deal has special interest to Linux supporters as AMD has long been a favorite of the Linux community while ATI has been a something of a pariah, even though it does offer binary Linux drivers

In light of recent stories about the price-performance superiority of Intel's upcoming Core 2 Duo processors, the following line seems especially interesting:

"A.M.D.'s overall gross profit margins, which fell in the latest quarter to 56.8 percent from 58.5 percent in the prior quarter."

Looks like AMD has a little room to maneuver on price.

Ironing out Linux wrinkles

Anyone who has used Linux will know that sometimes things don't always work as you expect and finding good help is not simple. Usually the problems are simple enough and have more to do with differences between the way operating systems work than with anything else but getting them sorted is important. Linux Annoyances for Geeks tries to solve as many of these problems as possible and makes for informative reading.
