AMD & ATI become one company. And then "AMD" becomes AMD & ATIC....

Merge, then split... sounds like corporate restructuring, which typically tells everyone that internally things aren't doing well.

Well obviously things aren't/weren't doing very well. Look at the people leaving/fired in the past 2 years. This is supposed to be the start of the uphill climb for the company. I hope

Well things aren't going well internally, its no secret...
The spilt should allow for better processor designs and a more stable AMD, but I would have prefered if they could have managed it without the split.

well lets hope AMD will do good in near future, because I would hate to see Intel as the only serious CPU manufacturer, and monopolize the market.

“It’s a bunch of nonsense, frankly. We have very competent lawyers who looked at this deal from top to bottom.”

Well, clearly Intel should just trust that AMD looked at it and not be allowed to ask questions? Makes sense!?!?

In other news, Intel has said they have very competent lawyers who looked into the anti-trust suit AMD has filed and they found no issues - so AMD should bot be allowed to see any information related to it.

It is still not clear how this deal gets around the outsourcing restrictions on the current x86 license (which states AMD can't outsource more than 20%). While AMD has 50% voting rights they are a MINORITY equity owner in the foundry.

man... does ANYBODY understand the implications of this? you're talking about ABU DHABI being now a major stakeholder in AMD/ATIC.... that's the GOVERNMENT of the UAE, extremely oil rich, and extremely BIG SPENDERS.. with them on the wagon, AMD can now have the capital it needs to catch up to intel.. man.. lol.. i can already feel the big guys at intel starting to sweat! things should start getting interesting in a year or two! :D

i just hope AMD uses this chance and gets Fusion out right, not another "Phenom"enal disappointment!

No doubt the only problems Intel will have with the cross-license agreements is the ones they need to convince AMD to cancel their lawsuits against them. Let's face it this is a great oppotunity for this.

I hope this means that Barcelona soon will replaced with Bulldozer and that we'll soon see Bobcat kick some Atom and Nano ass.
