Perhaps you had a peek at the first one, but AMD just spread the second video as a pun against NVIDIA, we take no credit here. Make of it what you want, and I'll check the comments in the morning :)...

They are mocking Nvidia, but in my eyes they are silly.
The video is pathetic...

I don't think they use an AMD cpu. Look what cpu they use for benchmarking. Am I missing sth. or it is really embarassing :S

Yes it is really embarrassing, but since it is a comparison between two products from direct competitors it is better to use neutral waters.

I don't know what's funnier the video or the fact they resort to continually bashing the competition. First rule in good marketing never point fingers, always three pointing back at yah.

Found it rather amusing. Amazes me when people consistently get uppity over this stuff, which is sort of what the ad was making fun of anyway.

I'm actually a lot happier with this one, they finally did not mention or show the competitors product and showed of the strength of a 6 screen arrangement.

But they have to start adding more details to these commercials.

Yes, but I identify this mobo as ROG Crosshair IV, so it is an outdated platform for a supposed new set of GPU's, they should pay attention to the details, things like this makes people mocking at them.

Always a fan of AMD, but what do they do when they have a good product? Seriously this is a child attitude.
