Thumbs up LMAO - ATi Shoots the nVidia beast in the head!

Check out this image from the ATi splash page. That green blood looks very familiar!



I guess this has something to do with the new Alienware contract, but it still looks like a deliberate jab...

Considering they say "It's totally lethal" you seem to have a valid point. Who could it be totally lethal to? ==> The disfigured guy spilling green nVidia blood. ../K

Game over, EnDVidia?

Why don't they put that on the retail box? Remember when Warcraft III came out? We sold three of the box with the undead guy on it for every one we sold of the others until we ran out.

I don't think they did, but the monster's blood is most definitely nVidia green....

Yeah I saw the pic yesterday when I was at ati.com, I think the green color is symbolic along with the wording. The ATI hompage looks SOOO cool theese days.

Go to nVidia.com and take a look at their logo, then come back and tell us what colour it is...

I've always thought that that picture was gross. I can't understand how it is supposed to boost sales or represent a fast, state-of-the-art video card. And, please, don't tell me that you see the correlation...I still have some hope left for this world.
