Looks like by the beginning of next year the ATI name and logo will be retired and we will be buying AMD cards instead. Hold onto those boxes, as it looks like they may become collectible

Yeah. Looks like they'll still be called Radeons for the time being though

They better not have that ugly green logo on the cards.

I liked the red ATI logo.

The logo etching has changed, although ofc it aint green.

We had an edict about this regarding correspondences a while ago. I've kinda gotten used to calling them AMD cards now tbh.

A few other things are going to change as far as the user is concerned, but let's face it, it's just marketing. Some tit will call some of it rebranding tho.

There's a good reason why AMD want their own gpu's if you think about it. Wink wink, they are closer than you might think /innocent face

I've no doubt been waiting for the blockbuster super-hybrid fruits of the AMD/ATI collaboration!
