ATI runs their business like many people run a hobby. Their hardware is
great, their software sucks, their support is worse than their software,
and so on........
AMD is a top notch engineering shop. The docs match the hardware,
the software works, and one of their hot projects is a whole line
of low power integrated chipsets for handheld devices.
About 3 years ago they bought the Geode line from National and have

My hope is that the merger will produce a line of high quality low power
graphics chips with working software and good docs.
