    Gainward hints at new image

    Graphics card manufacturer Gainward, possibly best known for their 'golden sample' products, is hinting at its new image which it will be launching 'soon'.

    Is that an Audi she's posing with? It would seem that Sister Bliss is standing by the wrong car if speed is her thing.

    They need to do a damn sight more than that to ever tempt me to buy a Gainward card again.

    Twice bitten, twice shy.

    Unoriginal, dull and clearly aimed at people with no taste/teenagers (same thing ). And I'm sick of people using partially dressed girls (especially badly rendered ones) to try and make technology products look better. It's so 80's and serves only to continue the myth that people with an interest in technology are sad, permanently single geeks.

    BTW, what happened to that guy that came to work for hexus from Gainward (was it Gainward?) Andy was his name i think. There was that comp to put a caption to his photo to win a card. Remember?
