    AMD , the #2 supplier of Computer processors, is close to a deal to buy ATI Inc for
    $5.5 billion, a source familiar with the situation said on Friday. Any such deal would
    shake-up the processor industry, which is already witnessing a battle between AMD
    and Intel. So unless the talks breakdown, the deal would be announed today or
    tomorrow!! Both the AMD & ATI spokesman declined to comment!!

    Even after the deal still ATI still has got the Intel Bus licence. So we will still be seeing Intel chipsets from ATI.
