Following last week’s dual-GPU teaser, AMD’s marketing department is back with another teaser for their forthcoming product.

This time they’ve sent along a bottle of water and two cans of (potato) chips. All 3 items are adorned with the “#2betterthan1” hash tag.

The chips themselves are unremarkable (Pringles). Meanwhile the bottle of water is far more interesting.

Rather than just being typical water, the Waiakea “Hawaiian Volcanic Water.” The use of Hawaiian water no doubt intentional and strongly hinting at the card being based on AMD’s Hawaii GPU.

Finally, keeping with AMD’s “top secret” theme for this campaign, they sent along a letter with a bit more information. We’ve posted a redacted version below.

We also quickly checked the text for the logo at the top, “Melius est ergo duos esse simul quam” which as it turns out is taken from Ecclesiastes 4:9 in the Bible. The English translation of this (NIV) is "Two are better than one” once again continuing AMD's teaser theme.

    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.
