AMD to bundle processors with ATI cards

Posted on Wednesday, Jan 17 2007 @ 02:31 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
AMD started bundling its processors with ATI graphics cards, offering consumers a cheaper price if they buy one of these special deals.
This will put Nvidia in trouble - once AMD gets a competitive with R600 in sight. It will especially affect AMD’s OEM business. Imagine the price benefits an OEM or system integrator gets when it buys chipset, CPU and a Graphic card all from AMD.

This is the way to compete with Intel and Intel has been able to do this for years. Why not attack it where it hurts the most - right in its beloved platformace business? Centrino and Intel desktop platformance are now facing real competition.
