AMD AMD may be looking to buy graphics company ATI Technologies, a move that would benefit the overall graphics industry, according to RBC Capital Markets. "The synergies of this seem consistent with the recent announcements by AMD to significantly increase capacity over the next few-years," wrote analyst Apjit Walia in a note to investors Wednesday. "We believe ATI is a rare-buy in the semiconductor space right now given the near-term tie-up dynamics."

nVidia has bought Uli chipset manufacturers that were almost the only ones who delivered decent chipset for AMD processor, beside nVidia, no to speak about ATI's chipsets. AMD had only the choice between good but expensive nVidia's chipset, or the cheap'n crappy ATI's chipsets. Now AMD is offering itself a chance to get really good chipsets side of the nVidia catalog. I think the whole stuff is beyon the GPU problem !
