It's Called Marketing: AMD to Hold Threadripper Event in Partnership With Scuderia Ferrari

It seems that the marketing money is flowing once again at AMD - certainly buoyed by the company's mainstream, enthusiast and professional success with its Ryzen, Threadripper and Epyc series of processors. The event, being organized between AMD and Ferrari, has been confirmed by multiple sources, according to Videocardz, and should be focused on AMD's upcoming Threadripper 2000 series. Being one of Ferrari's sponsors for its Formula 1 team, the company is likely taking advantage of that fact to ease into such a high profile partnership - as well it should. The event is expected to take place in the last week of July - maybe time for a Threadripper 2000 an announcement with a spin on AMD's solutions being employed for simulations, providing the crunching power that is behind every F1?

The V6 in the Scuderia Ferrari SF71H is the 64th single seat car Ferrari has designed for F1.

Ehhh, it's the same marketing. The difference is that the hype this time is likely justified.

Once the financial crisis started hitting in the US after around the world many pulled their sponsorships from F1. F1 became less interesting. You had a brief time where Jaguar, Ford, BMW & Toyota were all making comebacks to F1 and bam every one started cutting back, teams left. F1 started looking more like F3 and hasn't recovered since IMHO.
