AMD Never Settle Forever Program Finally Announced
The Never Settle Forever program lets customers choose their free game.
Now that the NDA has been lifted, we can finally talk about AMD's Never Settle Forever program. It was originally introduced to us during E3 2013 back in June, and offers three tiers of rewards when purchasing AMD hardware: Gold, Silver and Bronze offering three, two and one free game, respectively, from a set list of AMD-optimized titles.
According to AMD, customers purchasing the AMD Radeon HD 7790 or the Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition card will fall within the Bronze tier. This will allow owners to choose one free game from a library of six including Sleeping Dogs, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Far Cry 3, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Dirt 3 or Dirt Showdown.
Those who purchase an AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series graphics card will fall within the Silver tier. As previously stated, this offers two free games from a larger library of eight including Hitman Absolution, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Devil May Cry, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Sleeping Dogs, Dirt 3, Far Cry 3 and Dirt Showdown.
Finally there's the Gold tier which allows customers to choose three games when they purchase an AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition, Radeon HD 7970 or Radeon HD 7950 graphics card. This library of nine games consists of Tomb Raider, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Hitman Absolution, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Devil May Cry, Dirt 3, Sleeping Dogs, Dirt Showdown and Far Cry 3.
The digital or in-box coupons supplied by these cards are good until December 31, 2013, and can be used at the company's new "Radeon Rewards" redemption portal. They're also good for one transaction, but they don't need to be used immediately: gamers can hold on to them in anticipation of new titles entering the program before the end of the year.
To celebrate the launch, the Radeon RAMDisk software price will be temporarily knocked down a notch to $8.99 USD (typically $10) for those participating in the rewards program. This application will dynamically harness unused RAM to "dramatically" improve load and execution times. Gamers of any tier will be offered the exclusive discount upon redeeming their coupon.
"AMD has numerous close ISV partnerships with the world’s top game developers and we are thrilled to collaborate with them to the benefit of gamers," said Matt Skynner, corporate vice president and general manager, Graphics Business Unit, AMD. "But the ‘Never Settle Forever’ program is an entirely new dimension of that commitment, as it pioneers the concept of a completely customizable game bundle. For the very first time, gamers can assemble their own perfect bundle from a vast catalog of games optimized for AMD technology."
AMD said on Wednesday that it will be showcasing the titles in its "Never Settle Forever" program at Gamescom 2013 in Cologne, Germany. For more information about the Never Settle Forever bundle, head here.
