Cryptic teaser site from AMD, but what do they plan to reveal?

A cryptic countdown from AMD is nearing the 00:00:00 mark with just over 24 hours to go. The site, ifitcanreachspace.com, features a balloon-like sphere getting closer and closer to Earth as time progresses. Other than the initial mind boggling imagery, it's a large cinematic webpage with minimal text and a large centered countdown display. 

The only sign that AMD actually has any relevance to the site is because of the blue text box surrounding the teasing text. "So far ahead of its time we are launching it at the edge of space" is both mysterious and secretive, yet reeks of AMD with its styling; doing a quick WhoIs lookup confirms the domain belongs to the company.

Although AMD has remained silent regarding the site, we reckon the latest mobile Kaveri processor, suspected to be revealed at Computex 2014, could be linked to the teaser. The major tech event just so happens to take place later this June, and wccftech has reportedly confirmed the next generation mobile lineup could indeed be announced there.

We'll be sure to keep you posted for what AMD reveal within the next few days, so keep your eyes peeled.

I've been using ATI/AMD cards ever since my first which was the Radeon 8500, then the X1950 Pro, HD4850 and now the 7970. Never have I had an issue with drivers.

if you look through the source code on the java file it says
$(this).parent().html('<h1 class="countdownfinish">Don’t be so impatient</h1>');

HOWEVER a few days ago it USE to say
$(this).parent().html('<h1 class="countdownfinish">AMD/'s most advanced APU ever.<br /> Welcome To Earth</h1>');

so its pretty much for sure a new APU lol

Thank God yes, do you want to pay even more for an Intel CPU or Nvidia GPU? AMD may not be on top at the moment, but their existence is keeping things reasonable.

AMD is all we use in our company for years. I never understood why we should spend the extra money on Intel based desktops when an AMD one does exactly the same for less.

It depends what you need to do. At my work we swear by Intel because their processors are much faster at the high end. AMD is fine for workstations, but there Intel can be significantly better bang for buck when performance is needed.

That all said, AMD is far from irrelevant. Their graphics cards are very good, their APU's are much better than Intel equivalents. Parent comment is foolish if they think AMD is somehow out of the game.

"... I swear by Intel that story is true. It is!" =)

I agree Intel is better performance. But AMD has caught the heart of many budget gaming enthusiasts over the years =).

AMD budget gamer right here :D

Buy an AMD graphics card, get a "weather" balloon for free! When you play a game and the heat from your graphics card starts melting your computer, simply take out the card, tie it to the "weather" balloon and send it to space. After the card cools down, use our app to navigate the balloon back to you.

Except that space makes a perfect insulator and the card would not cool off. High atmosphere would do it :-)

Send it towards space, then.

No, it would still cool off in space via blackbody radiation at a rate proportional to its absolute temperature raised to the fourth power.
