AMD Has Sold Over 2 Million DirectX 11 Graphics Cards

Postby Apoptosis » Tue Jan 19, 2010 8:18 pm

I forgot to post this, but during CES the crew from AMD celebrated the shipment of its two millionth DirectX 11 graphics chip. ATI has had successful launches of the ATI Radeon HD 5970, ATI Radeon HD 5800 series, ATI Radeon HD 5700 series and just recently the ATI Radeon HD 5600 series of DirectX 11 video cards. Pretty amazing these cards are already in the hands of millions of consumers worldwide! Pictured below is the cake that they had during an AMD party at CES!

Cake is awesome. It's even better when designed in cool ways such as the one shown here.
