    I doubt it, if that happens Intel will have a monopoly on x86 chips. I doubt any market will allow that.

    Both Intel & AMD are US companies & US anti competition laws would never allow a merger/takeover between these two.

    Perhaps because Nvidia is already marketing their proprietary G-Sync technology.

    Good going AMD, thats how you will get your market share back. I own a 1080 but fully support AMD to kick ngreedia's anus.

    Nvidia seriously need to adopt freesync, Only reason Gsync monitors are still selling is because of Nvidia's market share. If that disrupts, well its over.

    Though not committing into fanboyism anymore,still I was a fanboy of AMD and have an adorable respect for them.
    In fact I am keen to get on a 2-in-1 convertible(Touch screen enabled)based on AMD Ryzen APU, from HP or DELL or LENOVO or ACER,when my timing and circumstances will be onto my hands.:wink:
