That makes no sense. Diversifying their revenue was a smart move and ATI got as much as AMD did out of the deal. Neither company on their own was well poised, together they are much stronger providing an integrated solution for low power devices, consoles and STB applications. AMD would be sold long before it ever went out of business and videocards won't stop being made unless they stop making money.
