Monkey Business: Installing A Graphics Card with AMD's Primate Pal

AMD just sent over a note with an interesting link that you all have to see. To coincide with the release of the new, sub-$100 Radeon HD 5670, AMD is embarking on campaign to entice users to upgrade. The slogan? "It's so easy, a monkey could do it!"

"It’s been a hot season for PC gamers, with the recent releases of games like DiRT 2, Modern Warfare 2, and Dragon Age: Origins. To get the most out of these games – to play at the best frame rates, at higher resolutions, and with the most eye candy turned on – a graphics upgrade might be in order, and, for some of your readers, that prospect may be a bit daunting.

Not to fear. For those who might find upgrading tricky, AMD’s here to prove otherwise. In fact, AMD thinks it’s so easy to install a graphics card that even a monkey can do it, and they brought in their primate pal Louie to show everyone."


AMD ATI Radeon HD 5670 - Don't go bananas. It's easy... really.

What he said.

Then again I have met some Geek Squad peps that are not much smarter. I think only one of them I have ever met caught on to me knowing what I was talking about quick enough not to make an ass of himself.

Hey I used to work for geek squad lol

Every now and then i'd have some guy come in and try to test me, and then he'd end up getting school lol

But I think I take more of an interest into this stuff than most Geek Squad agents lol A lot of the guys I worked with weren't exactly... uhhh capable lol But there were some that knew their stuff.

I loved talking to Geek Squad and asking them some question about data center management or high end server peripherals, just to see what they would say. I swear, they had to be trained to where if they didn't know the answer to just make something up. Not really a smart way of thinking.

Yeah, maybe that was jerkish =D

About the Video, Maybe AMD/ ATi Division has caught onto all of the hype and popularity that GEICO has had with their Cavemen.

Ahhh, but the real question is: Can a caveman do it?

I can't imagine how many takes it took to film that. I'm also guessing the monkey pissed inside the case in atleast one of them.

lmao I thought that's how you finish every install? By pissing on it lol

Trunk monkey anyone?

I'd pay extra if my Radeon card came with a monkey to install it for me!

rofl thats pretty funny. Chanigin a GPU or most main components now is rather easy. I think in general people are just afraid to open there magical box.

^indeed....

Some people are even scared to install stuff... lol...

and the GS comments are somewhat spot on...

I guess they finally found a new job for Hector Ruiz!!!!!

Lol, I thought the monkey bore a striking resemblance to Geraldo Rivera.

Complete unrelated to the video, but man I love the thumbnail I made for this post. That chimp cracks me up!

0

lol, Marco when I saw the thumbnail I was expecting a chimp instead of the monkey that was in the video.

I was somewhat dissappointed :-(

lol Marco.

lol... turns out installing a graphics card isn't quite monkey business lol... Sold a guy an old graphics card and he's having a hell of a time installing it in his dell lol

Told him to disable his onboard graphics, he said it only has the option of auto and integrated. But he can boot to windows and windows sees the card, but he can't it to display from the card :-\

Might have to go provide some tech support on that one lol

haha, maybe you should send him the link to this video!

"You're doing it wrong! Look, do what the monkey did!"

hahaha

Haha, or maybe, "Sir, please refer to video for further instructions."

pretty funny video made my evening, good night guys

That is one suave and debonair primate.

Maybe someone could save that "Pee"C with a pressure washer and an oven to dry it with.

It seems the monkey was diggin' the games too.

I don't know if he was digging the games as much as being indoctrinated ala Clockwork Orange. Smile

Why chimps should not play video games:

Gibbersome That was a funny video but there were no monkeys so the AMD video wins

My apologies, here's something more relevant to the subject matter:
