This past fall, AMD launched a GPU promotion that was without question one of the most attractive we’ve ever seen. Dubbed “Never Settle”, it allowed gamers to purchase any mainstream or higher Radeon HD 7000 series card and score a free game – or three. As is common to ask after a promotion like this – how on earth could AMD follow-up? Today, we have that answer, and it comes in the form of “Never Settle Reloaded“. Brace yourselves:
| ||HD 7900 x 1||HD 7800 x 1||HD 7900 x 2||ARES II (UK)|
|Crysis 3||✓|| ||✓||✓|
|Tomb Raider|| ||✓||✓||✓|
|Far Cry 3|| || ||✓||✓|
|Hitman Absolution|| || ||✓||✓|
|Sleeping Dogs|| || ||✓||✓|
|Deus Ex: Human Revolution|| || || ||✓|
|Nexuiz|| || || ||✓|
Soak that all in? Good. We’re talking about some serious gameage here in return for purchasing an AMD graphics card, and to call this promotion compelling would be a hilarious understatement. Even those who purchase the modest $200 HD 7850 will get two free games valued at more than half the GPU cost alone. For those going for the gusto with a CrossFireX HD 7900 setup, the rewards are even more impressive.
As the table above shows off, those who live in the UK and purchase an ASUS ARES II graphics card (a dual HD 7970 in a single card) will receive two additional titles on top of the rest.
This promotion is being handled a little different than usual, so it’s important to understand the details before diving in. You have to purchase the GPUs from participating retailers, as it’ll be up to them to place the coupon cards in the box at the time of shipment. Before you make your purchase, make sure that the games are reflected somewhere, either on the product page itself or the shopping cart. Not a DIYer? Many builders are participating as well, such as MAINGEAR, CyberPower PC and iBUYPOWER.
