NVIDIA Corp. is confident it can stay independent despite the recent takeover of its main rival, and it sees big growth opportunities in areas such as mobile, where it expects to double the sales. NVIDIA has been the target of merger speculation since Advanced Micro Devices Inc., announced it would buy Canadian graphics chip maker ATI Technologies Inc. for $5.6 billion. Some analysts have suggested NVIDIA could end up being bought by Intel Corp., or at least being forced to strike some sort of in-depth partnership like a licensing deal. Mike Hara, Nvidia's vice president of investor relations, reiterated his company's determination to stay independent. "It reinforces our philosophy that we don't want to be tied up," Hara told Reuters when asked about the ATI deal. "I don't think anything changes. In fact, what we've already felt and seen I think gives us the energy to push faster. While AMD and ATI figure out what their future looks like, we know what ours looks like," Hara also said.

I wish ATI could have had that same mentality and just said no to AMD.

</div>It may yet prove in ATI's best interest to have the resources at AMD working on creating a socket-compatible GPU.

Yea maybe the AMD-ATI thing will work out, but Nvidia are fine on their own and always have been, ATI have been bought you cant change that, but if nvidia stay alone it means they can do the things they want to do without having to report to Intel.

if amd-ati can strangle the market on regular everyday run of the mill pc's eg: dells using intergrated cpu/gpu and ati chipsets just imagine how much money they will make. they then can challenge intel even more which means if they can catch them up there will be pricewars and more competition so we all get better cheaper processors yay<img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />
