AMD to put holograms on chips

By Derek Sooman on January 10, 2005, 1:06 PM
AMD has said that it will be putting a 3D hologram on its boxed chips using Dupont Izon technology. Sounds nice, and puts one in mind of the kinds of things that adorned the Pentium II processor when it came out. How exactly you will see the thing when its got a heavy heat-sink clamped over it is anyone's guess. However, there may be an ulterior motive.

[AMD]denies that this has anything to do with the reports about defective chips swilling around in the channel, although it is still to comment as promised on the reports.

hmmm interesting, BTW techspot, I'm probably the only one who will post on this subject lol. I would like to add that this is great, but I have no idea how they are going to implement the holgram onto the processor. Its sounds like a cool idea, but I think its going to be difficult for them to do. Anyway I love you AMD, and someday we may get married, in the meantime, I'll keep buying your processors lol. Rock on AMD & Techspot!!!!!!!!

And where exactally are they going to put the hologram? As long as it doesn't interfere with heat transfer I could care less if my cpu has a hologram I'll never see.And nope... not the only one MonkeyMan. ;)
