Are AMD and ATI About to Become Extinct?  - Are AMD and ATI About to Become Extinct?

UPDATE: One DAY after PCSTATS posted this story, AMD PR Manager John Swinimer wrote in to let us know it has refuted a couple points from's article. AMD state that its PCTV division which make All-In-Wonder and TV Wonder cards has not been sold off. However, it confirms the DTV division was indeed sold to Broadcom late last year. "The old war between ATI and NVIDIA may be coming to an end as ATI steps farther and farther away from game developers and he gaming community, and not having any leading edge technology other than DX 10.1 as an appeal, combined with limited games with the ATI logo are becoming more noticeable every new game launch. NVIDIA has now introduced PhysX technology that works exclusively on NVIDIA VGA cards and that combined with their gaming partnerships will propel them ahead of ATI by offering more bang for the buck across the board. I fear we may be seeing the end of ATI, much sooner than expected. Their All In Wonder division has been sold off due to poor internal support and lack of top end leadership, and John Swimmer the one man who was always the sole of the project will be sorely missed by many of us in the industry, hats off to you mate if you read this."
