So they like the name "Force", as in GeForce, but they will use AMD/ATI chips.

Hmmmm... is it me or this just creates confusion to graphics card newbies? WTH Inno3D? Your original name was perfectly fine.

These companies want to use different names because brand effect.

It's like PcPartner which has two brand names of it's own: Zotac for Nvidia and Sapphire for AMD.

Well duh. All I'm saying is I find it weird they are using the word "Force" for their ATI series.

It's named after me.
A blade cuts both ways. So why take the risk? Stab instead.
