A high-ranking executive from Advanced Micro Devices said the company would bundle the upcoming Battlefield 4 video game with its graphics cards as a part of future promo campaigns, such as Never Settle. Since Battlefield 4 is due in late 2013, chances are that AMD will add the game to its next-generation graphics cards, not the current-gen products.
“[Partnership between AMD and EA DICE on the Battlefield 4] was presented at the Game Developer Conference, and the AMD Gaming Evolved logo already appeared online in the context of the game. You can expect that Battlefield 4 will be part of [future] Never Settle bundles,” said Roy Taylor, corporate vice president of global channel sales, said in an interview with Heise.de web-site.
AMD and DICE (an Electronic Arts studio that develops Battlefield video games) demonstrated the content from the forthcoming Battlefield 4 game at the GDC 2013 running on a PC based on the Radeon HD 7990 graphics car, a long-awaited flagship dual-chip graphics solution by AMD.
AMD is really doing a bang up job with the developer partnerships. Not only are they cheaper and have more raw horsepower than Nvidia, card for card, they also offer almost the exact game you would buy with said card. Now if they could fix the microstuttering and get the PhysX license ...
And before anyone comments on microstuttering, please note they found a way to test for it finally. FRAPS!
AMD is certainly outclassing Nvidia on the bundled games front. I recently bought a new Radeon video card, and one of the things that pushed me to that card over an Nvidia card was the fact that it came with Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider, which were both games I wanted to play anyway. The comparable Nvidia card came with $150 of ingame DLC for some random F2P games that I couldn't care less about. Do better Nvidia!
