AMD Dragon Logo Now Public

Following the startling revelation by AMD, on just how much overclocking headroom its upcoming Phenom II processors offer, the company is on course for the announcement of the AMD Dragon enthusiast desktop PC platform. The AMD Dragon platform consists of a Phenom II X4 processor and Radeon HD 4800 series based graphics setup running on a 7-series chipset based motherboard. Earlier, a slide confidential to its channel partners was leaked to the media, showing up to 280% increments in gaming performance over its predecessor, the AMD Spider platform. Legit Reviews took a quick snap of the platform logo for AMD Dragon, showing a dark dragon with red glowing eyes holding the AMD Fusion badge. It also reveals the company's slogan for the platform: "Fusing technology with strength." Throughout the product launch phase for its 45nm Opteron processor, AMD has been largely conservative about its performance expectations, though with its desktop variants, the Phenom II series, AMD has been a little enthusiastic off late, advertising it as something "Beyond Expectations". It remains to be seen as to how far the company lives up to delivering to all the hype that has been created so far.

I highly doubt it means you cant take them seriously. I mean, where the heck does it say that? I dont think it is roaring at its wing but in a 3d picture like that, its hard to tell if its span comes down in its face or not. Personally it looks like neo-bahamut from FFVII.

All dragons look similar to each other, can't really blame AMD.

But, it's kind of lame...
Dragon...?

And Fusion? Lol, I remember there is a card name Fusion in Yugi oh...

I don't mind the name dragon but the logo IMO sucks. Cool looking art but just not a logo. If I were an Art Director (which I am ) I would have done something more trendy. Maybe a tribal dragon kinda logo? Maybe combine something like the two below?




I mean you can do all kinds of cool stuff with simple geometric shapes. Not EVERY design has to be CGA looking.

+1. A simple 2D motif makes it easier to present in the press. The picture in the news sourced by LR has a horrible gamma setting.

Well how was spider any cooler? Dragon sounds much more fierce and what the dragon symbolizes power, courage, strength, and strong will helps to define their product line.


In china, the dragon symbolized auspicious power.

Although out of all the art designs of Dragons they picked the lamest one. There are some peaty cool dragon pictures out there, why they went with that one is beyond me.

The simple reason for calling it dragon is because if you overclock it past 4ghz it will breathe fire.

I don't know why you people are bitching, but the dragon sure sounds cool. At least they chose a more powerful animal than spider, lol .

And that is in no way a good picture, wait for the official logo and a better picture, then you will see.
