Read the interview here ____________________ One of the largest mergers in Technology history will be the forthcoming AMD takeover of ATI. We spoke last week with Jon Carvill one of AMD's senior staff and today ATI CEO Dave Orton was generous enough to grant me some time to talk with him. I have had a few one on one sessions with Dave in the past and he is very passionate about the products ATI has made in his time leading the company and it would also be safe to say he is very confident with the direction this AMD/ATI merger is going to take. Driver Heaven: Intel have always worked closely with ATI, do you feel this merger will damage that relationship? Dave Orton: Intel is a smart company, and will do what is best for their customers. If we continue to provide compelling graphics solutions, I am sure we will continue to have a very good relationship with Intel. We have no intention of closing the door on our customers or to Intel. We have developed a 20-year relationship with Intel and we want to continue to support Intel and the market with our GPUs.
