AMD will never piss off their partners, or buy their partners. That would be a mistake bigger than OSX's Dashboard (they killed Konfabulator).
Ask yourself why AMD don't make MOBOs or chipsets for them?

And I believe it would _not_ be in AMD's favor to buy ATI either.
Unless AMD really believes that it can make HTX a GPU expansion standard
and it will become widespread. In that case, the only way it will
happen is if AMD buys a GPU vendor like ATI.


Why?

HyperTransport it's not a "free standard" (like OpenGL). What is sopping AMD, nVidia or ATI tho make that HTX thing you said? They have the engineers, the technology, the money... maybe the lack of Intel's POWER.

BTW: BTX it's not near... any soon, so Intel's POWER(TM by IBM) it's not so big. Thanks goes to Taiwan for that one.
