I used to be part of their developer/beta test program till it sort of fell by the wayside. It's a shame really. Matrox had some excellent products and their visual quality was first rate but they never seemed to get out of the "industrial imaging" mindset.

Hmm a bridge that lets you span multiple dieo cards from different manufacturers? A CrossSLI 7970 680?

A video card with expandable memory? A video card with upgradeable GPU/APU/coprocessor?

So many possibilities

Due to layoffs and losses, it will end up cutting costs big time for AMD.

Software bundles as well.
