Whatever the result, it isn't remotely comparable to the AMD/Ati merger. The two purchases aren't in the same league, much less ballpark....

Yeah, you got that right. The AMD/ATI is in the loser ballbark. It was an idiotic move by AMD to pay that much for a company that we have yet to see any tangible value from. It has distracted AMD and I believe it has also hurt ATI with the inevitable consolidation the follows.

The size of the aquisition doesn't mean shit it it ends up hurting more than it helps. HP-Compaq was a big merger, but it doesn't mean it was a good merger.. for the companies.. or the end user. At least with NVIDIA/AGEIA, they [NVIDIA] aren't overstretching their resources to do it and it makes for a better fit. That's what I mean by a better result.
