The merger effect: Protected balances

first_img continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr A couple weeks ago, we blogged on a few FAQs related to mergers. As it continues to baffle those of you out there dealing with mergers, today’s blog expands on the last FAQ – converting a credit card portfolio post-merger. For a refresher, here’s the scenario:Kenosha Credit Union merges into Point Place Federal Credit Union. Kenosha CU had a credit card plan that Point Place FCU does not want to continue administering. Point Place FCU wants to encourage members with this credit card to open a new card and transfer the balance from the old card. If it does so, must the existing balance be protected?As was discussed in the FAQ, the rules in section 1026.55 on increasing an APR apply to acquired accounts and when a balance is transferred from one card to another card at the same credit union. The commentary to section 1026.55(d) specifically mentions accounts obtained through a merger as a type of acquired account the rules apply to. If Point Place FCU wants to increase the APR as part of the balance transfer, either initially or in the future, it may do so only if one of the exceptions in section 1026.55(b) apply. The two exceptions that generally apply here – temporary rate and advance notice – both create a protected balance.last_img read more

AMD Radeon RX 5900 XT and Radeon RX 5950 XT rumors begin

first_imgUS$215.99 Sapphire Radeon Nitro+ RX 590 8GB GDDR5 AMD is just over a week away from launching its new Radeon RX 5000 series graphics cards based on the new Navi GPU architecture, and while we’ll see the Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 — there won’t be any high-end flagships to compete against the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti.    According to new leaks stumbled upon by Komachi on Twitter, it looks like SAPPHIRE is working on a bunch of new Navi-based Radeon RX 5000 series cards including some purported flagship models we haven’t heard about yet. We’re looking at the Radeon RX 5900, RX 5900 XT, RX 5950 and RX 5950 XT as the new high-end Navi-based graphics cards to be excited for — but are they based on Navi 10 or 20? That we don’t know. We could expect a dual-GPU variant in the Radeon RX 5950 XT which would be really cool, but I can’t imagine the power numbers on that thing.
