SAN FRANCISCO, July 28, 2006 (PodTech News) – AMD announced this week it’s acquiring Canadian graphics firm ATI for $5.4 billion. PodTech News talked with semiconductor analyst Shane Rau of IDC at Intel’s Core 2 Duo press event yesterday about the effect this deal might have on the chip industry. “The PC market is a huge market, and characteristic of a big market that’s very mature, is consolidation. You’re seeing this theme of things coming together. Companies have to come together. Products have to come together, and at the silicon level, where you’ve got process technologies, (you’re seeing) silicon integration. Eventually you’re also going to see markets coming together: computing markets like microprocessors coming together with consumer markets, like digital TVs.” Catherine Girardeau reports.
