    This is a very cheesy campaign, but at least it's different from the usual Dual Extreme Shadow Killer Military Grade GPU Power ads.

    And any marketing campaign has to be measured by its success in terms of increasing mindshare, and in this sense, the campaign has been successful.

    ten years ago I thought this monster/military style ads will be gone soon Reply

    You forgot to add "Turbo V8 Supercharged" to that list ;)

    But yeah, I like this marketing campaign too!

    Hey, those chips aren't cheesy; they're regular Pringles... or so says Agent Smith... Reply

    All that and a bag... er, two cans of potato chips. Reply

    I think you missed a hint: two cans of chips + a bottle of water? How about a water cooled dual Hawaii card? Reply

    not regular water cooled mind you, this is "Hawaiian Volcanic Water"!!!!!
    they should've have used Pringles Xtra Spicy Chilli Sauce instead of the regular flavored chips though...

    Perhaps this will cooled with a dual Asetek-style cooler similar to the Asus Ares II Reply

    Nice catch! It's quite plausible too as a single Hawaii chip gets quite hot (especially with the stock cooler), so a water-cooled dual Hawaii card would be feasible. Reply

    I immediately thought of watercooling too upon seeing the water bottle. Reply

    In noticing the lids of the chips..
    "Bursting with flavor" = how severe of an overclock on "volcanic water cooling"???
    "A cord of three.."= 3gb PER chip??

    Ok, this is getting fun! Just hoping this doesn't lead up to an April fools gotcha!
    At least AMD is getting us all talking about it.

    "Agent Smith"

    I understand it's just because the editor is Ryan Smith, but I can't help but think of The Matrix. Especially with the photo of two Ryans sent earlier.

    It might be my inner fanboi but I'm loving "The Teasers" so far. They're giving alot of hints. Reply

    All i have to say about this is to stop beating about the bush and just give me my 20nm GPU', have had enough of my crossfire HD 7850 setup. Reply

    The cans are only small so maybe it's two midrange gpu's are better than 1 high end.

    GPU's are already modular and contain multiple modules so it's probably not a 'dual core' gpu as such.
    Could be two gpu's on a package though.
