Big changes ahead.
There were big news this past week with my company merging up: AMD and ATI pairing up. We were required to attend endless meetings with the VPs and directors trying to calm everyone down. As expected, there wasn't much response in the Shanghai office as the people were quite new along with some inherited from an older company that we bought so they didn't really understand the impact yet. However, I've received lots and lots of emails from friends back in Toronto who are all very worried about what will happen with many of them discouraged. After all - pairing up with AMD, it only makes sense for Intel to cut our products. In the long run; there will be lots of growth *if* the strategy works, but personally; I think it will be challenging and will take lots of time for ATI to recover to where we are now. Oh well, in 3 months time (with all legal paperworks settled); I guess i'll change my namecard to AMD.
