Manufacturers are to blame for this, and not ATI. The chipset will be just fine but this very easily might be the last Intel based chipset from ATI. This is what the motherboard companies believe at the moment.
ATI is still trying to convince the world+dog that it loves Intel even more than it did before but the Taiwanese find that hard to believe. They like the consistency and ATI and Intel doesn't sound like a marriage that will last much longer. The new bride AMD will put pressure on it, we are sure.
ATI will launch it but I wonder how many will embrace the RD600 chipset. We have to stay tuned for at least a few more weeks. µ
