If designing a GPU from scratch is so easy why it intel's so poor.

Even if you do design your own GPU you're going to still need to use a lot of other companies patents.

Looks more like they saw how badly the company depended on them. Then decided to drive the price down and pick it up for a song.[/quote]

Them getting rescued was not part of the plan but I do wonder if they are paying less to get hold of more...
