A lot of that news came about during the initial price cuts on the 280 and 260 when they had the vendors eat the price on the cards at the time.

Nvidia jumped the gun. Tried to take advantage of their position.

They've always been greedy and thankfully AMD had the balls to release a better, cheaper product.

I was going to buy Nvidia for my next card, but now I have no choice, ATi it is.

Why doesn't anyone reference them as they are called: AMD.

ATI is the past.

That's just an old habit on my part. To me ATI is still sort of just the same old ATI but owned by AMD. Even on HD 4000 series cards today the boxes still have 'ATI Radeon' logos on them, and no mention of AMD.

But ya the correct thing to do is to call'em AMD.

Edit: Also I find it more convenient to call them ATI, because when I do that, people know I'm talking only about video cards; when I say AMD, people know I'm talking about CPU's or what-not.

Well, nowadays when I hear AMD, I think GPUs, because that is all they are good at.

LOL actually I think even AMD recognises ATI as its own individual entity, just that they own it now. If you go to their site, you'll see that there's a section for dedicated for 'ATI Products.'


LONG LIVE ATI!

Well, if you own an ATI Radeon 9600, they would put it on ati.amd.com, because people will need to find drivers, support etc and not have everything mixed up.
