    Seriously

    Hi, this is my first post here. Been a regular reader for over four years of this page, and always enjoyed Techpowerup for the nice and detailed reviews/news/etc... You'll all notice that english isn't my native language. However, I hope you'll understand my humble words :)

    Many times I've wanted to write here, but really didnt't take the full step out. But this one, just made me, so I won't be gentle here, and hopefully I'll start a hot discussion, and maybe not.

    So, back to the topic. Before updating the picture, I couldn't even see that it was a dragon (maybe my monitor is crap..) so the logo itself was for me a black and grey collage, of 'whatever'. AND, I couldn't give a flying 'beep' actually what the logo was supposed to show. If AMD choose to use the 'Teletubbies' or the 'Grim reaper' on their logo, it's for me the same. All that matters is (yes, again, for me) is that the hardware gives me scores I can read on the screen that will give me goose skin on my eye apples. The logo doesen't move me in any way, except for the new Intel logo's that makes me want to put on make-up and cross dress...:D

    Well, people, might have blown some steam above here, but let AMD have a chance, and give them the possibilities to make competition for Intel and nVidia. Let them use a dragon, if it can boost their sales. If they fail this time, I know for sure it's goodbye for them. And, not only for them, but for competion on price/quality and green powered products.

    I'll stay AMD till the end, bacause of the reasons mentioned above. I'll hope the dragon will breath fire on Intel and nVidia :ohwell:

    I don't see what all the ruckus is about...It's just a logo...and a harmless one at that...I mean lets face it "Skulltrail" although the more powerful of the platforms sounds equally if not more adolescent..:rolleyes:..I will agree that these companies are getting quite silly with the naming scheme's...perhaps a little trip down memory lane is in order...They are adverstising speed, why not take their que from the 60's muscle car era...Names like '"Cyclone", "Maruader", "Charger", "Barracuda" or GTO, or SS(+ whatever name) all say fast without the pre-adult pimply faced over tones...I don't know, just my two cents...I will add that if "Dragon" performs as it claims, or comes close to even 90% of the claim, I will get put one together, dragon name and logo won't matter...:toast:

    Hehe, I see now that I should keep my mouth shut. Again, my english is terrible, and as pointed out, some major spellerrors! ;-)

    Well, I'll stop now, and hope we all have alternatives in both CPU and GPU after the financial disasters has settled.

    Cheers,

    I agree the naming has gotten a little ridiculous - but it seems AMD is finally strarting to force their name into the market . . . it wouldn't be such a struggle if they've actually advertised more over the years - same goes for ATI. But, money has been tight for them, so . . .


    but - the naming could be worse, I suppose . . . I mean, they could be using names better suited to the energy drink market, y'know? Hell, could you imagine . . . an AMD or Intel processor code-named "Kronik" or "Joose?" A GPU from nVidia or ATI code-named "Bawlz?"

    definitely . . .


    I think ATI has come the closest with having code-named the 4870x2 "Spartan" . . . we sure had a good run with that one. :laugh:

    I personally don't have a problem with "Dragon". Honestly, it's just a name. As long as it can perform as well as, or even better than, Intel's equivalent then I couldn't care less what it was named.
