    Default AMD has a "dark side" - set free September 25

    AMD has published a rather mysterious page on their website, claiming that "AMD has a dark side." On September 25 2007, you will be able to bring home "a beast thatís leaping and snarling on the end of its leash." All we can think of is that AMD may be releasing the Phenom FX series ahead of schedule, or perhaps the RD790 chipset.

    Read the full story here...

    Ohhh the suspense.

    This type of advertising is really effective. If i remember correctly, Razer did something similar for the Lachesis. It said something like blood will be shed.

    I can't wait to see what it is. Most likely the Phenom FX probably. It's also good to see some AMD news after the Intel dominance the last few days. It's kinda hard to take in all the new AMD GPU's mentioned today. Good on 'em.

    it's got to be the 4x4 idea, some amdual socket mobo with dual quad's inside. I have to admit, this would be really fast.

    I feel your pain Gareth :mad:

    It's unrelated to the 5000+ though. The only thing that came up last night was the official announcement of the HD 2900 Pro - but i wouldn't fuss too much over it. This is really bad for AMD if nothing comes out of that add campaign.

    From an enthusiasts perspective, AMD is in trouble. But this marketing rubbish did get me thinking about 4x4. Having dual quad-cores in a box with SLI is going to kick the crap out of anything Intel can offer at the moment, and with Crysis coming (and many more multi-threaded games) it will become a really interesting..... and expensive year
