Motherboard makers prepare shift of ATI chipsets to AMD

Posted on Wednesday, August 23 2006 @ 00:13:32 CEST by

DigiTimes writes Taiwanese motherboard makers will likely reduce or even suspend their efforts to develop Intel-based motherboards with chipsets from ATI, while switching more resources to the development of models with ATI's AMD-based chipsets.
Local motherboard makers are increasingly concerned that the AMD-ATI merger would cause a discontinuation or shortage in supply of ATI chipsets supporting Intel's platform, with the makers citing as a precedent the shortage of ATI's southbridge chips early this year when Nvidia completed its takeover of Taiwan-based ULi Electronics, which previously bundled its southbridge chips with ATI's northbridge parts.

Motherboard maker Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) is now re-assessing its plan to launch Intel-based motherboards based on the ATI RD600 northbridge and ATI RS600 IGP product, according to the sources.
It's also expected that AMD will soon bundle processors with ATI chipsets to make them more attactive in the OEM PC market. More info over here.
