AMD has announced its latest marketing campaign in the face of a sad economy. “Unlock the Power of Black” offers bundle discounts to channel partners on its top-selling server, desktop and gaming products.
What we’re trying to do is change the dynamic and do one of two things — either solve a particular business problem or consumer problem, or we’re trying to give them a better visual experience,” said John Honning, senior manager of North American channel marketing at AMD.
As the HPC folks are most likely interested in the Opeteron series, AMD is offering a bundle based on Opteron Shanghai and TYAN boards at up to 40% discounts. If you have some extra capital equipment cash, now might be a good time to score yourself a few additional nodes.
