At the core of ATI’s business is the PC, for which ATI delivers leading technology powered
by ATI’s Radeon graphics processors. For notebooks, ATI’s
Mobility Radeon line of graphics processors for mobile products, delivers technology

Lately, the company has been in the foreground with announcements of
forthcoming and very promising graphics cards, the introduction of the
CrossFire technology, as well as the cooperation of the company with Microsoft
over the next generation OS Vista and the Xbox 360 gaming console.
