Noooo! Say it ain't so, ATI. You were so well respected and always give us graphical geeks the prettiest booth babes and babe posters. Now you will disgrace yourself by teaming up with Nokia for multimedia purposes. It is a sad day indeed.
Today ATI announced the partnership with Nokia for multimedia development on mobile devices. Multimedia meaning music, TV, video and unfortunately, gaming. Most of the focus seems to be around ATI's Imageon processor for 3D, video and audio processing. Nah, this doesn't have anything to do with the N-Gage—yet—but anytime we hear gaming and Nokia in the same sentence we tend throw up a little bit.
