AMD AREA-64 and Athlon64 Launch

Back to Events

The AMD Crop Circles

These are real and not photo-chopped.

AMD had the guy from www.circlemakers.org show a video on how they made them

Each of them read out AMD in some way. There are also 6 dots on top and 4 on bottom.

This is the one I figured out, it reads AMD in Morse code

This one reads AMD in braile
