Microsoft's OS didn't help support their CPUs at that time either.
So when did AMD buy ATI? I thought it was fairly recent. Also any one got any more ideas about IB release date?(approx)

The new tech really matters because its better!

Thanks, Sir Overkill.

It was announced back in July 2006, AMD acquired ATI for $5.4 Billion.

On July 24, 2006, Advanced Micro Devices and ATI announced a plan to merge together in a deal valued at $5.4 billion. The merger closed on October 25, 2006.[7] The acquisition consideration included over $2 billion financed from a loan and 56 million shares of AMD stock.[8] ATI retained its name, logos and trademarks. ATI's then CEO Dave Orton was made the Executive Vice President of Visual and Media Businesses.[9]
