AMD and Intel, In Perfect Harmony?

Who says that two incompatible individuals can’t be together at last? Will this mean that Intel’s rivalry with AMD has already ceased?

Intel has chosen ATI to be integrated with their motherboard line, D101GGC.

As quoted from the ati website (ati.amd.com) : “Intel has teamed up with ATI to deliver its first Intel branded motherboard with the ATI Radeon Xpress 200 chipset. As part of the new Intel® Desktop Board Essential Series, the D101GGC offers a cost-efficient solution for the budget conscious user.”

ATI was earlier acquired by AMD (NYSE:AMD) last October 25, 2006 for a whooping $5.4 Million Dollars thus giving additional strength to its technological advancement.

“Intel’s use of the Radeon Xpress 200 IGP is a huge step forward in graphics performance compared to Intel’s Extreme Graphics architecture. ” says Anandtech.com’s Brandon Hill.

The D101GGC key features are:

  • PCI Express™ integrated chipset
  • Radeon® X300 Direct X® 9 integrated graphics
  • Ready for the next generation Operating System
  • High definition audio/video for Windows MCE
  • Full support for the latest technologies to up sell
