First off, some people have been spreading
on how the systems were presented. There were two, not one of them on
display right next to each other. The one on the left was running Call
of Juarez demo and the one on the right was running Stranglehold, the
box itself is out of the frame.
AMD made two systems running the Agena processors
available for media to play select games. The company would not let
anyone view the system properties details, but sent the two featured
images to press beforehand.
Anyone who says anything different has an agenda. Anyone that says
differently and was not there has serious credibility problems. In any
case, none of the doom and gloom and/or alien technology conspiracies

quote: "To his credit, the image on DT and every other publication was canned -- AMD gave it to media. They did not let media take their own pictures of the demo systems. Nor would they disclose what speeds the demo systems were running at."
quote: This is disingenuous at best, you have a habit of stating things like you were there when you were not, and possibly only got the information from a press release.
quote: On top of it, the mailings the day before is a complete fabrication. The pics on your site and others were mailed AFTER my story was posted, I got there early took the pics, and posted the story.
quote: You take a lot of glee in calling other on errors, time to take your lumps.
