It's certainly a marketing experiment. Aside from online via Facebook, vlog etc. and in-person at tradeshows, how else does XFX intend to have their spokes-model interact with customers? As a ring-card girl at gaming contests?

I think this will discredit the gamer more then anything else and reinforce the gaming stereotype. But without proper marketing research this is what you end up, sponsors of hardware promoting "gamers".

Fact is for proper professional gaming coverage you would need to have a large budget starting from the game manfucator all the way down the value chain to the live event hosting areas(which are probably casinos or live sporting areas). Also all of the stakeholder's in the value chain would need feedback back and forth to ensure that the gaming can grow because this could take many years to properly build it up from a gaming hit to live events to national coverage. Professional gaming isn't really here because few successful gaming companies have the resourcee,industry knowledge and understanding of the professional gaming requirements to build a pro gamer brand.

Girl 2.0 is still a little buggy. It crashes occasionally and when it gets corrupted, it takes half of your stuff and keys your car. I'd wait for Girl 7.0 personally. It should be out soon.

Ptroen, what on earth are you talking about ... this has nothing to do with sponsering professional gaming.

I'm going to skip girl 2.0, and wait for girl 3.0, about which I will of course complain isn't half as good as a patched girl 1.5. Actually I'd probably settle for a girl 0.1 :(

Your headline mentions gamer girls, but not the article. Sure, there might be that one attractive girl you see at the monthly LAN party at your school, but she's probably too intelligent to whore herself out to XFX.

Most likely, this contest will be one by some professional model who knows little to nothing about games or computers. Not that I care, anyone calling themselves "a gamer" is pretty pathetic to begin with.

Does anyone even actually pay attention to computer hardware marketing? I was under the impression that everyone cross shopped specs and price and bought the cheapest part for their need. XFX should quit wasting money on overhead and make that graphics card cheaper.

Well, commonly XFX has the cheapest option. I maged to pick up my 4870 1GB brand new for the price of a 4870 512MB.
I also prefer the warranty on XFX cards. It's not increase clock by 1MHz and no warranty for you.

Hope it doesn't turn out to be some blonde bimbo.
I'm getting sick of them already... bleach blonde hair and silicon tits... haven't found that exciting for a while.

Show off the hardware like it's a girl...

"Sexy 1GB of GDDR5"
"Huge 800Mhz - Ours is bigger"
"Will do anything you desire... Even on camera..."
