AVIVO features such as vector adaptive de-interlacing and advanced downscaling are supported for an improved media PC experience. The graphics core is equipped with four pixel-pipelines as well.

All the AMD/ ATI merger will do is call for integrated and performance solutions, as ATI will developed the motherboads, graphics and etc. However, I still see Nvidia being a big player on the AMD team, not just developing motherboards, but also making physics, and powerful graphics solutions for both Intel and AMD.
Nvidia is not ousted this generation or the next in the business with AMD. However, I imagine sometime after this decade they will have trouble defeating ATI on AMD grounds due to intergation of both products. For the next TWO years however, that won't happen as there is nothing they are integrating together.
AMD bought ATI to survive Intels onslaught and gain higher ground in motherboard and graphics manufacturing... this does not signal the end of Nvidia/ AMD collaboration for the present time.
