In AMD’s new commercial a gamer who’s just installed his brand new GeForce is complaining he can’t run his game. Everything is settled when an arrogant dude with a leather jacket appears from the dark and hands him a Radeon videocard. What comes next is a moment of clarity and catharsis, followed by brutalising the GeForce to a symphony of downtuned guitars.
The ad is funny, but quite infantile. NVIDIA makes good products and deserves to be the top dog on the market. We wonder if AMD really have become this cocky, or just desparate. Well, no need to elaborate on that. Both companies have a place under the sun.
