Let's cut to the chase here. As part of their Never Settle campaign, AMD have banded with game publishers and hardware makers like ASUS to offers gamers what appears to be the progenitor of all 2012 game bundles. Actually, it's one of the best ones I've seen in years. Anyone still on the fence regarding a move to 28nm graphics needs to get off it and head to one of the participating retailers pronto. To make things simple, pretty much all performance ASUS HD 7000 Series graphics cards are eligible and take part in the promo, and all are DirectCU versions, as well.
The campaign covers the HD 7770 GHz Edition, CrossFireX HD 7770 GHz Edition (buy a two-pack, effectively), HD 7850, CrossFireX HD 7850, HD 7870, CrossFireX HD 7870, HD 7950, HD 7970, and HD 7970 GHz Edition cards, i.e the new ROG MATRIX. What do you get with each one? Well, all come with 20% off on Medal of Honor: Warfighter from EA PLUS Ubisoft's Far Cry 3. The CrossFireX packs and 7900s add Eidos/Square Enix's Hitman: Absolution. Finally, all 7900 cards get the full deal, adding Sleeping Dogs (also from Square Enix) to all the above.
Remember, the games are all download codes, not physical copies. But they're in the box and all yours just for buying one of those cards. May I make a suggestion here?
This is a really sweet deal as any gamer will agree. All the titles are major releases. Personally, I'd be happy with Far Cry 3 on its own, but hey, choose one of the 7900 behemoths and you will be smiling.
The promotion is live now, you can check out AMD's official event site right here. It's also tied to the new Catalyst 12.10 drivers, which I believe were launched just in time for my beloved Windows 8.
