Intel Ad #2: World's Smallest Microprocessor

Intel yesterday kicked off a new ad campaign with a TV spot that depicted an Intel engineer as a rock star.

Now another commercial is available with the tagline, “Our big ideas aren’t like your big ideas.”

The TV spot stars off with a couple of broadcast reporters rushing into a media briefing, only to arrive to a room with everyone on the floor searching for a small object (or maybe everyone just lost their contact lenses at the same time).

Finally someone finds the small object and holds it up with a pair of tweezers. Everyone in the room applauds. The reporters’ camera zooms in to the tweezers, unable to see anything, confusing the broadcasting pair. Then, it all makes sense since it’s for the world premier of “Intel’s Smallest Chip.”

While it may not be as entertaining as yesterday’s TV ad with the charismatic Ajay Bhatt, it still highlights that the tech industry has its own culture that popular media thus far hasn’t been able to accurately present.

  • That's what you're really getting for the extra money you pay for Intel, you get to see these commercials, which in turn entice you into buying more Intel stuff. Because I'm sure that in a double-blind taste-test, you couldn't tell the difference between a Phenom II 940 and a Core i7 965 EE, unless of course you're running SuperPi or some other benchmark that Intel bought and paid for.

    SuperPiFanboyThat's what you're really getting for the extra money you pay for Intel, you get to see these commercials, which in turn entice you into buying more Intel stuff.

For some of my MATLAB code, or video encoding, you absolutely could tell the difference. For gaming? Probably not, but why the hell did you buy an i7 965 for gaming alone?
