Not really. I was simply riffing on ways to increasing distribution and value through partnerships. I could have just as easily said "Comcast, EA, Nvidia". CableCard is one piece of tech which AMD likely acquired during the ATI acquisition, and Nvidia (to my knowledge) does not.

I've always believed that ATI/AMD could win the GPU wars tomorrow if they played their cards correctly and leveraged the full breadth of technology available to them. I also believe that it is likely AMD will likely lose due to mismanagement, missed opportunities, and lack of focus. It won't be due to poor engineering, it will be due to bad corp leadership.
