Neowin Immortalised in AMD Chip

The Vanishing Point Game may be long gone, but the efforts of the Neowin and unFiction communities lives on through the specially engraved AMD chip, announced today.

The winner of the 'meta prize' for Microsoft's puzzle game, designed for the launch of Windows Vista, sought to acknowledge the help she received from Neowin and so asked to have our community's name engraved along with herself and her husband.

Chip number 1, of the limited run of 1,000 AMD Athlon 64 FX, was presented to Audrey Murphy by representatives from AMD and Microsoft.

One word describes that video: awkward!

wow, you ain't kidding... that was painful to watch...

did they ever post the solutions? i was trying to figure them out but gave up fairly quickly...

LOL! and it does a very good job of stereotyping the players of this 'game'.

It is acceptable to write it both ways. The British spell it with a 's' while Americans spell it with a 'z'.

Rob happens to be British so that's why he spelled it the way he did.

pretty cool... i would have helped but all those puzzles had my inferior mind stumped!

I'll also have to join that queue too - I certainly didn't have the foggiest idea on how to do them.

Add me to that list as well. I had no idea how to do the puzzles either.

I knew how to do the first one, and I almost started writing a script to solve it for me.

Then I remembered that:

a) It's a GAME.
b) Even if I complete them, it's still a DRAW for the prize.
c) There are bigger nerds than me who have more time to solve them continuously.
d) Odds of winning mathematically insignificant.

verga que bien!... felicidades Audrey, Neowin y unFiction!

now neowin should make a contest for one of those chips :p!
