AMD defines itself as the joker in the pack

Literally

Build a business case: developing custom apps

Computex 2006 A nice young fellow kitted out in Nvidia green handed out a deck of AMD playing cards at Computex today, one of the many freebies vendors dish out to passers-by to promote their products. This time we wonder if AMD was indeed the schwag supplier - or whether a rival chip maker might be having a laugh...

We thought the deck of cards might help while away the long hours stuck on the Cathay Pacific 747 that's due to take us home, so we had a closer look. With the exception of the court cards, all the cards have AMD CPU logos: the hearts are all Mobile Athlons, the diamonds Athlon 64-FX, the clubs Athlon 64s and the spades Opterons.

But does AMD really want itself associated so closely with the other two cards in the pack?
