Online Hong Kong-based HKEPC Hardware reported on August 22 that ATI may fail to follow its promise that its acquisition by AMD would not affect chipset shipments for the Intel platform. ATI's upcoming RC610 chipset, which is set for release in the first quarter of 2007, may be the last ATI product supporting the Intel platform, according to HKEPC.
Truthfully, it wouldn't surprise me if they did. AMD probably doesn't want to offer an Intel solution if they don't have to. But then again, they could stand to make a significant amount of cash there.
