Time for a slap on the wrist.

THERE IS ONE aspect of AMD's acquisition that has been overlooked by many. AMD needs graphics expertise, even the sparrows know that by now, but ATI actually needs a strong hand to keep the products coming on time.
No question that ATI has a bunch of talented engineers but traditionally these chaps have managed to skip most of the target schedules. Just in the last 12 months they delayed the R520, then delayed R580, RV516, RV530, RV560 for a whole quarter and now even the saviour, the R600 is behind schedule.
