AMD on Tuesday launched its new campaign to make its gaming-oriented CPUs and GPUs more attractive to the target audience. From now through the first half of next year, AMD will provide a free subscription to Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass for PC with a purchase of qualified hardware.
Gamers who purchase a Radeon RX 6000-series graphics card or Ryzen 5000X/3000X/XT processor from a participating retailer will get a free one-month subscription to Microsoft Xbox Game Pass for PC as part of AMD's Equipped for Battle game bundle. Typically, Microsoft charges $1 for the first month and then $9.99 per month.
While the bundle's value is not exactly high for graphics cards that cost from $650 to $1700, it allows gamers to try out over 100 new games and enjoy their graphics board without purchasing a bunch of titles.
