"Looking inside, Chipworks has found creative expressions on many of the chips that we have examined. Our combined facilities house six optical microscopes that provide us with the magnification required to discover the hidden art on some chips. Magnification can vary anywhere from 200 to 500 times the actual size. We think that these masterpieces deserve a wider audience. Have a look at what we've found!"

See also fsu's similar and AFAICT much older page. They also tracked down a lot of the 'artists' so they have some interesting stories and background about the art.

That is dang cool. I was disappointed, though, that the "FAQ" section was about the company, not the chips. How big are these pictures, anyway?
