AMD today published a handful of desktop wallpapers today showing off their new Phenom brand of processors, more precisely the architecture of the four-core Agena processor. Three of them can be found on the Neowin Forums at the gorgeous resolution of 2100×2100. Not sure who has a 30″ 1:1 ratio cube monitor, but what the heck.
I’m not too sure if they came straight out of a photo-shoot, but they’re a little bland. The (pee-yellow) colors are washed out, the gradients have visible banding and there’s no branding – surprised AMD’s branding team didn’t go nuclear over this.
So I took some time making a little modification to it, redoing the radial gradient (with AMD’s official colors), touching up the lighting and shadows, cleaning up the colors and added a fun message plus fake brand logo.
If anyone likes it, you can download it in these convenient resolutions
- 1280×1024 (5:4 ratio)
- 1440×900 (widescreen)
- 1600×1200 (normal)
- 1680×1050 (widescreen)
- 1920×1200 (widescreen)
It’s pretty easy on the eyes and there’s plenty of room around the sides for icons and dancing women (if you got those).
