The AMD cards are still being advertised as ATI on the shop.

Do they still carry the name or are have they completely jumped over to AMD?

Probably because a lot of people (average consumer) still think of them as ATI and would be confused.

I know that AMD absorbed ATI a while ago and yet when a friend was talking about AMD cards it took a while for that lightbulb to turn on inside my head :p

i thought ATI belonged to AMD since way back... they suddenly decided they wanted to drop the ATI name, is that not it?
