After a long and drawn out quarrel between Nvidia and Microsoft ATI has stepped in to make the graphics chip for the next Xbox system. With back slapping all around, both companies agree that ATI is the greatest video card company ever.
Of course this more than likely means Nintendo won't be showing the ATI logo on their next console. Will Nintendo take Nvidia, Microsoft's sloppy seconds? Only time will tell.
Ã‚"Microsoft shares our passion for cutting-edge innovation,Ã‚" said K. Y. Ho, chairman and chief executive officer, ATI Technologies Inc. Ã‚"Our success working with Microsoft in the past gives us great confidence as we move forward, and our broad experience and wealth of engineering resources will ensure that we deliver. This agreement cements ATIÃ‚'s position as the prime graphics supplier for the future of the games industry.Ã‚"
