So it's more official than it was before

ATI Technologies Inc. shareholders voted overwhelmingly today to approve the proposed acquisition of all outstanding common shares of ATI by an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD). More than 99 per cent of the votes cast by shareholders were in favor of the transaction. No ATI shareholders have exercised rights of dissent in connection with the proposed acquisition.

AMD and ATI announced plans to merge back in July, which was pending government and shareholder approval. The Canadian Goverment gave the merger a passing grade through its anti-trust laws and regulations early September.

ATI will seek final court approval for the arrangement at a hearing on October 17, 2006. The transaction is expected to be completed during the week of October 23, 2006.

yeah, right, I want a GPU with the memory bandwidth of a mainboard. That ought to make those DX10 games really fly!

they could pack embedded ram onto the die like the xbox 360 so it wouldnt need to use system memory very often, if at all depending on the ammount of e-dram. the 360 uses only 10mb. with that much the 360 is said to do 4x AA on a 1280x1024 image for "free". So pack on 100+ mb and the system memory thing shouldnt be too much of a problem

The idea of Torenza is not to make the GPU use system memory , that's going to happen only for some versions probably . I sometimes wonder why do people only think of themselves as customers ? There are those who don't need to make the "games fly" beacause they really don't play games on the PC, they work or do multimedia stuff ....
As for the gaming side there's no reason why the video can't have its own fast memory ( on a card or on the MB ) . The torenza link will thus be only to provide the fast access to the CPU which is needed .
